Here we are just a couple of weeks away from Halloween and I’m ready. I swore when I was a kid I wouldn’t be THAT house giving out to junky candy and I’m living up to my word. How so? I only give our Hershey’s candy (.)
Being from Pennsylvania, Hershey is a staple here. Yes I have been lucky enough to visit Hershey PA. Chocolate Town USA is a great place to visit, you can smell the chocolate in the air, it is true and it is magnificent.
For my money chocolate doesn’t get any better than Hershey’s and once you pair it with Reese’s peanut butter you have the perfect candy ever invented. Whopper’s, Milk Duds, Reese’s, Kit-Kat and Hersey’s bars my candy collection is candy nirvana. Even though I live with the Halloween Scrooge (my husband) who would gladly live in the house the kids avoid we live in the house that the kids come to! Why is that? Because I refuse to give our inferior candy and ruin their Halloween.
We love York peppermint patties, and this year the peppermint patties are shaped as bats, what kid (or adult) would not love that! I would love to make cupcakes and top them with the York Peppermint Patty bats! That would be great for a Halloween party!
Don’t be that person, don’t be that house that gives out those strawberry hard candies! Who wants candy they can find in their grandmother’s candy dish or at the bottom of their mothers purse?! If you were that person take the time to redeem yourself and give our Hershey’s candy and make up for years of past candy purgatory.
I was in the Halloween party sprit and I made some cookies! Check out the easy recipe below:
REESE'S PIECES Peanut Butter Cookies
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup REESE'S Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup REESE'S PIECES Candies
- Heat oven to 350°F.
- Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, peanut butter, egg and vanilla in large bowl until fluffy. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Stir in candies. Drop by heaping teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned; remove from oven. Cool slightly; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool completely. About 2-1/2 dozen cookies.
