A Sneak Peak:)

I have been so busy the last couple of days with a BIG event!  I have had a BLAST working on this!  I just couldn't wait to give you a little "sneak peak" on these things!!  Here you go...and make sure you try the recipe...it is my new favorite!!

So...what are your guesses...what is the BIG event?  What is my theme???  You will get the details on Monday!!!

Here is the recipe to these INCREDIBLE cookies!  I really wanted to eat like a million of them!!  This came from allrecipes.  I will give the recipe as is and then tell you what I did differently:

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

**1 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. creamy peanut butter
3/4 c. white sugar
**3/4 c. packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/3 c. flour
**1/3 c. cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c. peanut butter chips (Reese's kind)
**10 Reese's Peanut Butter cups, cut into eighths...FROZEN

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth.  Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.  Combine the flour, cocoa, and baking soda; stir into the peanut butter mixture.  Mix in the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and peanut butter cups.  Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 8-10 minutes in preaheated oven.  Let cool for 1-2 minutes on sheet before removing, or they will fall apart.

***So for my changes...I used
1 c. butter crisco (or you can use 1/2 c. butter and 1/2 c. crisco)
1/4 c. dark brown sugar and 1/2 c. light brown sugar
I used NO cocoa powder
1 bag miniature Reese's PB cups, cut into fourths.  I only put 6 cups in the batter.  Also...FREEZE them before using them so they will keep their shape and its easier to cut them!

I did everything the directions say, BUT...I baked them for 7 minutes, put 2-3 Reese's on top and then baked 1 more minute.  So bake a total of 8 minutes.  They may seem undercooked (mine didn't), but they will stay super moist and not crunchy!


  1. Well, it is obviously little guy's 1st birthday party, and you have lots of polka dots, but you are so much more clever than me so your theme eludes me. I'll look forward to seeing your unveiling later!

  2. Those cookies look like HEAVEN. We can't wait to see everything! It'll be fantastic.
