Reese's Pieces Cookie Cups with peanut butter and Reese's Pieces throughout are a delicious and easy dessert!
Prior to making these Reese's Pieces Cookie Cups, I think I had Reese's Pieces MAYBE once in about 5 years. Shame on me! I had forgotten how much I enjoyed them.
When I was at the store, I saw them in the baking aisle at the store and thought it would be fun to make something with the mini Reese's Pieces. How could one go wrong with a peanut butter M&M? Well, sort of. Stick with me here.
Reese's Pieces Cookie Cups
I was trying to decide what to do with them, when I realized they are a great fall color. So many of you have fall parties coming up and I think these cookie cups would be a great treat. They are perfect for kids because they are small and manageable.
To make these simple kid friendly cookies, simply mix up the dough and bake in a mini muffin pan. You can use candy melts for the frosting or you can use orange frosting. (White frosting with orange food dye.)
This recipe is easy, comes together quickly, and you don't have to be a decorating genius to frost them. Really. It's easy, peasy.
