Reese’s Stuffed Giant Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reese’s Stuffed Giant Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nothing more to say than Yum!

I love recipe hunting…I rarely cook the same meal twice.  At first my family hated it, but now they love that every day is a new adventure!  It was a cooler morning here in Wisconsin so I decided to go ahead and try out a new cookie recipe.

Here is my FULL disclaimer.  This is NOT my recipe, just one that I found very tempting and thought I would give it a try.  I found this little gem on another blog called Mom’s Time Out.  Here is the link to this exact recipe:

Here is how it went in my kitchen and a few tips along the way.  I will share the recipe with you at the end.

Ingredients

I like to get out all of my ingredients before I start mixing.  I hate it when I put this much time and effort into something only to find out that I forgot the baking soda.

Sift

When it comes to baking I rarely change a thing.  However if the recipe calls for it or not I always sift my dry ingredients together.  You will never regret this.  I just dump everything into a wire colander and shake away.  You don’t need one of those old fashioned things with the handle.

Reading the directions it states that each cookie should be about 1/4 cup of dough.  I was very worried, but went with it.  I thought I was going to have MONSTER cookies on my hands, but in fact they are very normal in the end.  I didn’t tell my family what I was hiding a secret inside the dough balls…

Pile of empty Reese's Wrappers

Maybe I didn’t tell them was I didn’t want to share the left over Reese’s.  With this many wrappers nobody will notice that the ratio of wrappers to cookies does not quite match up…

Like I said.  I thought for sure I was going to have mega huge cookies, look at these guys!  I only put 6 to a cookie sheet.

The sun broke through the clouds so now the kids are ready to get head to the lake and stuff their faces with yummy homemade cookies.  Enjoy!!!
