Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Cups
Quick, easy, simple, but delicious dessert is what I bring to you today. These Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Cups are a great dessert for a large party or potluck. This recipe makes 50 mini cups. They can be made up and baked in no time.
I decided to make these for a college football tailgate party we’re attending this weekend. My husband, a Michigan fan and myself, a Wisconsin fan are headed to Michigan to watch the Michigan Wolverines play the Wisconsin Badgers.
For the dessert I wanted something easy to travel with and easy to eat. I had some mini peanut butter cups in my pantry, so I headed to Pinterest for ideas. I found these Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Cups on a blog called Six Sisters’ Stuff. It looked like an easy, but yummy recipe.
Like any good baker I tried a few ahead of time and can attest to their deliciousness. I even left a few for the kids and grandparents to have back home. I’m sure they will approve!
