Mini Reese’s Cookies

I had a poll on my facebook page a while back. Rolos vs. Mini Reese’s.

Rolos won.

But my secret? I really planned on doing both all along. I just couldn’t decide which to do first!

My biggest problem is I couldn’t decide what to make with them. I first got the idea to use them in something from Shelly at Cookies & Cups when she made these. I wanted to do something different because I’m not a huge fan of chocolate.

I couldn’t do blondies again, and I didn’t want to do the standard peanut butter cookies, because I don’t love peanut butter that much. 

So what to do…

I thought of other things I enjoy with peanut butter and Muddy Buddies came to mind. Chocolate, peanut butter, perfect harmony.

Then I remembered these brownies. The basic ingredient is chocolate cake instead of brownie mix. And they are gooood brownies. So chocolate cake must be okay.

That’s it! Chocolate cake cookies! And then I realized. That is exactly what Shelly made. I made a full loop and ended up back in the SAME PLACE.

So here you have it. Chocolate cake cookies with Mini Reese’s.

Mix a boxed chocolate cake mix (I used Milk Chocolate flavored), 2 eggs, and 1/3 cup of vegetable oil.

Once the batter is all ready, add in the full bag of Mini Reese’s. Mix it up some more, the cups will break up a bit but that is perfectly okay!

Use a cookie scoop (or 2 tablespoons) to form balls and drop on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. These cookies will spread so keep them a couple inches apart.

Bake 9-12 minutes at 350.

These are super fast and easy. Whip some up and don’t forget to share!

Doggies Deserve Treats Too!

A while back I found a recipe online for homemade dog biscuits that I wanted to make. Seemed really easy, and much more inexpensive and healthy than store bought treats. And I figured I make all these yummy treats for everyone else, but doggies deserve treats too!

Ingredients:

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup rolled oats

1/3 cup peanut butter (I used creamy)

1 1/4 cup hot water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together flour and oats. Add peanut butter then hot water. Stir everything together. If it’s really sticky add a bit more flour. Knead well, then roll out to about 1/4 inch thick (or thicker if you have a big doggie).

Cut into shapes and place on greased cookie sheet (or line it with parchment paper). You can place them very close together, they don’t spread at all. they actually shrink up a bit. Bake for 40 minutes then transfer to a cookie rack.

Easy right? This recipe made 42 of these little bones.

I decided to glam up a few for some special pups I know (or know of).

My little girl waiting patiently for a taste:

And here are a few of her enjoying them… She just kept licking the frosting off.

  

So if your pup deserves a nice treat and likes peanut butter, you should make these easy biscuits!!
