I have to start by saying these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Sandwiches are DELICIOUS! Especially if you love peanut butter and chocolate as much as we do.
And, the best part – they are super easy to make!
First, make peanut butter cookies. While they are cooking and your house smells amazing, remove wrappers from peanut butter cups. When cookies come out of the oven, let cool for a few minutes. Remove cookies from cookie sheet and place on cooling rack. As you place cookies on cooling rack, put a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup between two cookies to form sandwiches. Let cookies cool completely.
Now take a bite of these delicious Reese’s peanut butter cookie sandwiches!! All I can say is YUM! What a fabulous sweet treat. I don’t think I’ll be able to eat plain peanut butter cookies again.
