Double Reese’s Cereal Bars

15 Nov

Hi again!

I made cereal bars!!

Double Reese’s Cereal Bars!!!

My daughter has been asking for Reese’s Puffs Cereal, and I finally caved.  Of course, she isn’t going be breakfasting on it; because I made cereal treats with the whole box!  Yup……the WHOLE, entire 13 ounce box.  🙂

To be honest……I love love love Reese’s Puffs Cereal.  It is a super tasty snack!   So, my girl gets her craving for it honestly.  In my opinion, chocolate and peanut butter should be a major food group……just sayin!

These treats are pretty festive……yellow, orange, and white!  Totally Thanksgiving-y!!  You make them just like a traditional Rice Krispie Treat, which is super simple……SCORE!  And, then you add extra Reese’s goodness……DOUBLE SCORE!!

Double Reese’s Cereal Bars

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • (1) 10 oz. package of miniature marshmallows
  • (1) 13 oz. box of Reese’s Puffs Cereal (It’s about 7 cups)
  • 1 cup Reese’s mini Pieces

–  In a large saucepan,  melt the butter over medium heat.

–  Pour in the marshmallows, and stir constantly until they are completely melted.

–  Remove from heat and add the cereal.  Stir until it is covered in the melted marshmallows. (It is VERY sticky.)

–  Using a rubber spatula, press into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan.  (I sprayed the bottom of my pan and also the back of the spatula with non-stick spray.)

–  Immediately pour the cup of mini Pieces evenly over the top and lightly press them down.

–  Cool, and cut into squares.

They are like an ocean of Yummy!  All I can say is……WILL POWER!!  I wanted to eat the entire pan!

I love to make cereal bars and treats.  These were a hit!  My kids hovered over them……another SCORE!

They are total winners!

I’m actually looking forward to making them again!

Enjoy!!

Peanut Butter Reese’s Pieces Cookies

22 Oct

Hi again!

I made cookies!

Peanut Butter Reeses Pieces Cookies!!

Everyday last week, my daughter came home from school and said, “Did you make peanut butter cookies?” And everyday the answer was the same…..”Nope, not today”.  I didn’t even know she loved peanut butter cookies….hmmmmm! 

So what was a mama to do?? 

Make peanut butter cookies, of course!!

And, since I made her wait; I figured I would throw in a bunch of her favorite candy.  Reeses Pieces tops her list…that much I do know!! 

ONE HAPPY PRE-TEEN GIRL!!

Whew…..because you never know what might cause a foot stomp or a slammed door when it comes to a pre-teenager!

I mean…..I’m sure I was a total angel at that age, and never made my Mother tip toe around my mood swings!  (Do you think I remember that time way differently that she does?)

I do know that I had this crazy eye disorder which caused them to roll incessantly!  Usually accompanied by a huge dramatic sigh.  EEks! 

Sorry Mom!  So these cookies are kinda for you too 🙂 !

Peanut Butter Reeses Pieces Cookies

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter (I used smooth, crunchy would work as well)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp. coarse salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 and 1/2 cups Mini Reeses Pieces

– In a medium bowl, cream butter, peanut butter and sugars until smooth.

– Add eggs and mix.

– In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder.

– Slowly mix into the wet ingredients.

– Fold in Reeses Pieces.

– Refrigerate dough for an hour.

– Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheet.  Flatten and make a criss-cross pattern on the top with a fork. (I criss-crossed some and just flattened some, they both turned out nice looking.)

– Bake 12-14 minutes or edges are golden and middle is set.  Cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

The cookie jar is full again!

So, if  you have a cranky daughter; you should definitely make these.  They have like some magical good mood stuff going on in them, and they totally work on boys too.   Heck, you could probably just “accidentally” leave the Reeses Pieces on the counter for the boys and they’d high-five you! 

Enjoy!
