Have you ever had days where you just feel like if you could go to bed and start all over it might be better? This morning was a prime example of that for me…
So I had a letter that I needed to mail. Now someone in our neighborhood hates our mailbox and has bashed it a couple times. Right now it is standing, but the flag to notify the mail carrier that there is a letter to be mailed is gone. It’s been gone since 2 days after we put this mailbox up. So I always put my letters in the mailbox at the post office. So I put my letter in the envelope, addressed the envelope, drove to the post office and threw it in the mailboxes in the middle of the road and started to drive off. All sounds good right? Yeah, well the minute I let go of the envelope I realized I didn’t put a stamp on it. OY! Sadly I had a car waiting behind me so I went and turned around and had to go into the post office. The nice people there went and opened the mailbox for me so I could put my stamp on the letter. OY.
So that really has nothing to do with today’s post other than, some days you eat the bear and some days the bear eats you.
Now if there is one thing I can tell you about my husband, it’s this… he likes Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. With his birthday the day after Halloween, I thought it would be okay to make him a special treat… Enter the Reese’s cup cookie cakes…
It combines lots of loves, Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, Chocolate Chip Cookies and Sugar Cookies!
See, I’m not lying :).
The order of the cookies really doesn’t matter, I just chose to do the chocolate chip on top and the sugar cookie on bottom. You could definitely reverse it. Only thing that has to go in a specific spot… the Reese’s. I’m not sure it’d hold up so well on the top or bottom….
I found it easier to start with the bottom piece first. Now you could use your own homemade dough obviously, just get yourself out about a tablespoon of each. The thing with using the store bought is they are already portioned off, which means you’ll get 24 :). It is best to bring the dough to room temperature as it makes it more pliable. Just cover the Reese’s bottom in the sugar cookie dough.
Then place the chocolate chip cookie dough on top and press over the top. Where the 2 cookies meet up, just pinch the sides together so that the Reese’s is completely covered. When the Reese’s gets hot the chocolate will melt and the cookies will make a barrier.
I put mine in cupcake liners so they were easier to handle and move, etc. Place them in a 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes. My oven worked best at 13 minutes. When they come out of the oven it will be puffed up but as they cool, they will drop. That’s normal :). It is also best to leave them in the muffin pan for a small bit (5-10 minutes maybe) just so they solidify their shape and it’s easier to move them out of the pan and handle them.
And that will get you one happy husband. He might not be as happy about a camera in his face while he’s eating them but he’ll get over it! 🙂
When Pokey heard about them, he wanted me to bring them to Sunday Night Dinner. Tbug had Zebragirl stay the night Saturday night. After Tbug went home to her mom’s Zebragirl “had” to hang out with hubby and me for a couple hours before SND so she and I made these desserts just to take for Pokey. When I walked in, I plopped them down on his lap (don’t worry they were in a carrier)
