Reese’s Spread Cookies

I believe the best flavor combination in the world is chocolate and peanut butter.  I regularly scan blogs and Pinterest for chocolate peanut butter recipes.  And if a new chocolate peanut butter product comes on the market, it is guaranteed that I will purchase it.

So one day while on Twitter, I saw a tweet that included a link to this recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies.  The link led me to a lovely cookie-related story but the thing that really caught my attention was a photo of this:

I had no idea this product was on the market.  How did I not see it?  How long had I been missing out?  Instantly I was on a mission — I simply had to have a jar of this stuff.  And just a few days later, I had that jar in my grubby little hands.  I was simply giddy.

My giddiness was short-lived.  It wasn’t chunky.  It wasn’t creamy.  It was gritty.  While the flavor was enjoyable, the texture was weird.  It was almost like they mixed sand in.  Sigh.  Disappointment.  I wouldn’t be making any chocolate peanut butter and banana sandwiches with this stuff.  But I had an entire jar (minus a small spoonful).  What was I going to do with it?  Oh yes — the cookies:

The cookies are delicious.  Thankfully the grittiness disappears into the cookie dough.  Plus, they are stuffed with peanut butter, the Reese’s spread, chocolate chips, M&M’s, and mini peanut butter cups.  That’s definitely a ‘Barbified’ recipe if I ever saw one.

I give a glowing endorsement to the cookies.  But if texture is an issue to you, I suggest you avoid the spread.  Looks like I’ll be searching for more recipes to use up the rest of my spread and sticking with regular peanut butter for my sandwiches.
