Crunchy Reese's Surprise Cookie Cups

Kim Novosel


Made these up on a trial run for a bake sale at my church. Both my boy's love peanuts, peanut butter, & chocolate, so I figured why not combine all of them. The surprise is when you bite into the cup to find a mini Reese's hidden inside. =) They were a success! Hope you and your family will enjoy them too!
