Reeses Peanut Butter Cookie Bites

pbcookies

You can’t go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate.  These little gems are to die for!  Oh my, they are so good…and almost too easy!  They look labor intensive, but are super simple.  I will tell you though, I didn’t realize how expensive a small bag of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups was until I bought them for these cookies…will definitely shop around next time, or look for them on sale, and throw a few bags in the freezer.  When I came upon this recipe, I knew I would have to make these though, as the hubby would LOVE them for a sweet treat on our Anniversary!

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are his all time favorite, so of course these were a hit…he couldn’t wait to get his hands on them.
