Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies

Last week, while my two oldest kids were at school, my youngest kiddo and I decided to do some baking. I was thinking we would make some banana bread, but he was adamant that we make cookies. Since I had some extra candy in the house from a recipe I made earlier, I decided to cave in and make these yummy cookies! Not only were they packed with chocolate and peanut butter, but the chunks of Reese’s and chocolate chips throughout each cookie made these Heavenly. When my two oldest kids got home from school, they each had one and proclaimed these to be “the bestest cookies ever”. Enjoy!!
