This week was my birthday, so I decided to bake something near and dear to my heart, my all time favorite candy: REESES! 🥜🍫 A friend and I once had a very in depth conversation about how the special shaped Reese’s (trees, hearts, eggs) are somehow even better than the generic cups (which are already pretty close to perfection.) We lamented that they are only available certain times of the year.
Well, as a gift to myself this year, I cracked the code to have these special shaped delicacies available year round 🤗🤗 As a devout fan of Reese’s I have tried many peanut butter cup recipes but they never quite matches the slightly crumbly texture and subtle saltiness of Reese’s. They were always a little too sweet or a little too smooth, but this recipe is LEGIT.
Not to mention it was really fun to use my random shaped cookie cutters for baking beyond sugar cookies 🍪 I’ll definitely be looking for obscure holidays or occasions to make these bad boys again 😼
