Reese’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

Since D came home the other night with a jumbo sized bag of mini reese’s peanut butter cups I had to find a way to use them somehow. Reese’s chocolate chips cookies came to the rescue. Though I’m going to need to make many batches of cookies to use up the reese’s, I have now at least made a dent in the bag.

I haven’t made cookies in a while so I knew a glass of milk with a plate full of warm freshly baked cookies would be a great surprise for D after his post work nap. Yes, unlike the majority of the working world, D still has time to pencil in daily naps. Holding onto his toddler roots, D gets tired and puts himself down for a nap. It doesn’t matter if it’s 2 pm or 8 pm, when he’s tired, he is tired. I personally don’t feel like I have this freedom anymore. I definitely appreciate a good snooze in the middle of the day but just feel like I can’t take a nap after work since it’ll disrupt my entire sleep cycle, keep me up til 3am and make for a miserable sleep deprived next day of work.

Oh the joys of college when I’d come back from class at noon, shut the blinds and drift into a deep slumber before skipping off to the dining hall and sampling a bite of every fried food ever created. Those days are long gone.

Regardless, post nap or pre sleep a handful of soft warm cookies with a glass of milk can always brighten your day.

      Thanks! It’s always interesting to read bucket list posts and see what different places/activities people want to get to see/try. Dave and I are currently putting together a 50 Things to Do Bucket List to post on our travel blog this weekend.

    Gee! Reese’s cups are gone in 60 seconds…Can’t stop munching on them. But I love the idea of using them for my baking because I get to share them with friends, neighbors and relatives. I love their smiles when I give them a box of homemade cookies. Thanks for sharing the recipe by the way =)
