I really love the taste of Reese’s Cups on their own but they also make for a great addition to baked cookie recipes. The idea of putting chocolate and peanut butter in your cookie mix isn’t exactly revolutionary, but using Reese’s Cups in particular really adds a nice flavor. Also the texture of Reese’s Cups allow you to do some things with your cookies that plain peanut butter and chocolate chips can’t achieve. Reeses Cookies are typically quite easy to make as working with a prepackaged snack is an easier starting point for mixing with your cookie batter.
There are probably thousand’s of recipes for Reeses cookies out on the internet and just like snowflakes, no two seem the same. Luckily both Reese’s Cups and cookie batter are available in abundance. I have tried many online Reeses cookies recipes and have chosen some of my favorites for this site. My selections were based on three main criteria:
My Reeses Cookies Selection Criteria
- Tastiness - This one is a no-brainer. The better the cookies taste the more likely I am to select that recipe. This has to be the most important factor.
- Difficulty Scale - The easier a recipe is to prepare, the more I like it. Baking is a fun pastime but I by no means want to spend most of my day in a kitchen. One of the coolest things about Reeses cookies is that they are easy to make.
- Creativity Factor - I really enjoy when people come up with original ideas for tried and true recipes. Adding a little twist that no one else has thought of makes for a great recipe. Of course it should be at least as tasty as the original for this to count!
