Reese’s Cup Cookies

Reese's Cup Cookies

My favorite candy? Reese’s Cups. We like them frozen..they’re the best. So for Christmas, our stockings were full of lots of candy and Reese’s! You won’t hear me complaining. Remember those commercials that used to play all the time saying, “How (insert name) eats a Reese’s”? I miss them..they always grabbed my attention..unlike 99% of commercials..Ive said it before, but I HATE commercials, which is why I DVR everything. But I digress.

Reese's Cup Cookies

How Alaina eats a Reese’s..Frozen..take one normal bite involving both the ridged edges and some peanut butter, then nip off the edges, and finally, demolish the center. It’s very technical people. Other than that, I like them in these Reese’s Cup Cookies!
