Seriously these cookies were amazing!
Chocolatey, fudgey, banana bread like, chock full of peanut butter cups, and Reeses pieces
do I have you convinced you NEED to bake these cookies in the very near future???
I had to break out the stretchy pants after these because I Could.Not.Stop!!!
One after the other kept going into my mouth
and I didn’t even care…seriously that’s what the pants were for!
You did see how many peanut butter cups and pieces are in these, right??
Don’t mess with my and my Reeses…
and after seeing that my most popular recipes involve peanut butter and Reeses of some sort…
I’m thinking you all like them just as much as I do:-)
So, really, these cookies were for you.
I just had to taste test them to be sure they were ok for you:-)  hee hee!
And now that there are no cookies left…I guess you better go bake your own…
and then go hide in a closet with a big plateful
because after you taste these…
you won’t want to do anything but stuff your face with them.

      Power to the Reeses!! My heart belongs to the cups and the pieces!!! These were so fudgey and delicious…I can’t wait to see what you thought of them:-)

    These just look amazing!

    Thank you for visiting my blog and for your sweet comment! If you make the shades, I’d love to see a picture! I was in the same predicament–not about to pay for custom shades. Using mini-blinds was such a cost effective option!

    Bananas & Peanut butter, yum! Like Elvis, these are my two favorite foods. Just wanted to stop by and say hello. I may not comment but I enjoy your posts. Stay Cool!

      Oh Melissa I am so sorry to hear this. I have made them a few times and each time has been fine. Did you try baking them a little bit longer? I know ovens are all different:-(

        Hi there! I just made these and they are super yummy. However, mine were consistently gooey also, no matter how long I baked them. After cooling on the racks they solidified a little more, but still slightly mushy. I didn’t want to bake them anymore in case it burned them. I’m not sure what I could have done differently. Do you mind sharing what kind of cake mix you used? Maybe that has something to do with it? Either way, it won’t stop me from eating them! Thanks for sharing :-) I also have my own site… Feel free to check it out some time! I’m always pinning recipes from this site :-)

          Hi, Becky. I just used a generic cake mix…that shouldn’t have made any difference. I just made these again using a caramel cake with caramel pieces and they worked fine too. Maybe just bake them a minute or two longer…all ovens bake slightly different.

    would love to try these but to you make the cake mix how its supposed to be made then add everything or just add the cake mix and not the eggs or whatever to make a cake… sorry just want to make sure i do it right

    • Jocelyn says

      Hi, Casey. You will be only using the dry cake mix. Do not make the cake mix like the box says or it won’t hold up! If you have any other questions, definitely ask:-)

    We just made these using Pilsbury Devil’s Mix, 60% cocoa chocolate chips and Reese’s Pieces- oh my chocolate overload. I am in love.
