Reese’s Fudge Cookie Sandwiches

WARNING:  This post contains a lot of protein packed peanut butter persuasion.

Come on, a girl like me can’t help but to love peanut butter and chocolate.  Sure, there are miserable days that go by that I don’t eat chocolate or peanut butter, but not many of them. 

And what can you say about King Chocolate?!  Chocolate just sucks me in like those bad reality tv shows.  And I love it!

For my dad’s birthday recently, I made 3 treats for our dessert bar:  Nutella Candy Bars, Avalanche’s and these Reese’s Fudge Cookie Sandwiches.  What didn’t get eaten that night, was sent home with my parents and also taken to my workplace.  Stuff always quickly gets devoured there.  Here was our dessert bar:

The fudge cookies are so quick and easy to make.  I mean really fast and simple.

Honestly, this was the first time ever that I have used a cookie scoop to make cookies.  It worked wonderfully and now I wonder why I didn’t use it soon.  I guess I thought that the spoon and roll in my hands method worked better!

The fudge cookies go on top and bottom of the Reese’s cup.

More Reese’s are chopped up and sprinkled on top of the cookie sandwich!  More Reese’s please!

Reese’s Fudge Cookie Sandwiches

3/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate morsels

1/4 c. butter

1/2 c. sugar

1 egg

3/4 c. all-purpose flour

4 chopped up Reese’s cups

1/4 c. semi-sweet chocolate morsels or peanut butter morsels

10-12 Reese’s cups, unwrapped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Line large baking sheet with parchment paper.  Combine 3/4 c. chocolate morsels and butter in large bowl.  Microwave on high 40-60 seconds or until smooth, stirring after each 20-second interval.  Add sugar and egg to bowl; mix until well blended.  Add flour; mix just until flour is incorporated.  Using small cookie scoop, drop 20 level scoops of batter, 1 inch apart onto baking sheet.  Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges are set.  Do not overbake.  Cool for 2 minutes and then transfer to wire cooling rack.

Meanwhile, chop up 4 Reese’s cups into small pieces.  Place remaining 1/4 c. chocolate or peanut butter morsels in baggie and melt fully in intervals.  Place 10-12 Reese’s cups onto half of the fudge cookies.  Top with remaining fudge cookies.  Snip corner off of baggie and drizzle chocolate or peanut butter over cookies and immediately sprinkle with the chopped up Reese’s cookies.  Allow chocolate or peanut butter drizzle to harden before serving.  Yields 10-12 cookie sandwiches.

Look at the lusciousness in the middle!  Simply irresistible!!!!

Are you a Reese’s lover like me?  The peanut butter in the middle of those lil cups is just the best!

I am still eating Reese’s Peanut Butter Christmas trees from the holidays 🙂  Reese’s, you have my heart!

I recommend you make these ASAP.  Get yourself a mouth full of peanut butter passion!


On a side note I have to share with you two new and great cereal finds!  Frosted Mini-Wheats with a Touch of Fruit in the Middle taste like a jelly filled doughnut!  And the Cinnamon Burst Cheerios taste like your eating a great big cinnamon roll, so good!

Do you eat Reese’s? 

If not, what is your favorite candy bar?

  1. Holy lord, those look amazing! The combination of chocolate and peanut butter is the best invention ever in life, I think.

  2. I love peanut butter cups ahh, they are seriously my weakness. My favorite candy though is Crunch. These look amazing and perfect for a party but certainly not lying around my house.

  3. Reese’s is good, but I prefer dark chocolate. 🙂 I love the drizzle on the top! So adorable!

  9. choc and pb are quite possibly my fav combination…this dessert might set me over the edge though! holy moly! So delicious looking!! How creative!

  10. Holy crap, that is a lot of peanut butter/chocolate food porn! I LOVE anything PB and Chocolate. One thing I’ll confess to doing is mixing together Nutella and PB, and melting it in the micro for a few. Yes, I have issues.

    Those cookies look delicious AND pretty, too. 🙂

  11. oh my… chocolate + pb makes me happy any day!!!

    in reference to your korean sweet potato question, here you go:
    it has a dark pink/light purple exterior and a yellow flesh! check out this post: – the taste is creamier and sweeter. they caramelize really well when roasted too. you must try them! they are available in the korean supermarkets. sometimes they are labeled “japanese yams”.

    hope you get a chance to enjoy them! they are heavenly….~~~

  12. These look mouth-watering!! Anything that combines pb and chocolate is a win for me!! Love Resees!!!

  28. simplyshaka says:

    I love your stuffed cookie/candy sandwich cookies. I seriously need to try this or the oreo/chocolate chip one soon. But on a Sunday so I can bring them to work the next day 🙂

    And who doesn’t like Reese’s?? I have a pack sitting in my emergency snack drawer at work. I don’t know how I havent broken into them yet!

  29. My favorite candy bar used to be whatchamacallits… But I don’t really have as much of a taste for candy bars anymore, I prefer dark chocolate.
    But reese’s pieces are scrumptious. In moderation. 😉

    Those cookies look amaaaazing I’m dying over here! haha… I definitely have a cookie scoop but I rarely use it (oops). If I use my hands I have an excuse to eat the dough, right? 😉

    Mmmm peanut butter…

  36. Meri says:

    I love the peanut butter drizzle! I love peanut butter but I can’t eat too much or it makes me SICK. dangit!

  37. Reese’s are totally my favorite candy. I’ll buy a bag of mini’s, stick them in the refrigerator, and wonder a couple days later how I finished them all!

  38. OMG your past two posts are going to make me fat! HA – Seriously peanut butter and chocolate is the best invention ever — and reeses are my favorite 🙂

  39. Wow! That’s all I have to say! Love the pics!

    My favorite candy “bar” has always been Reese’s or Hersey’s Cookies ‘n Cream, but I’m not much on candy anymore. Cookies and cupcakes…that’s a different story!

    I like 100 Grand, Milky Way Simply Caramel, Mr. Goodbar, Paydays 🙂 John’s favorite are Paydays.

  45. Do I eat reeces…. like that’s even a question! It is only my favorite type of candy!!! Loooove the combo of PB and chocolate. nothing beats it!
