It is hard to believe that the school year is coming to a close so quickly!! And with everything winding down for both my kids and myself (being a teacher), I really feel like life is in one big rush! And I suddenly feel like the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. You know: “No time to say hello, goodbye, I’m late, I’m late, I’m late!”
And these days I feel like it’s getting to be quite the challenge to fit some baking into the equation.
This is the perfect time, therefore to use some shortcuts and make some fast and easy treats that, of course, still taste yummy!!
This recipe is so perfect for when you are in a pinch! It only takes three ingredients (That’s right: I said three) and less than 30 minutes of actual prep time, and you’ve got yourself a tray full of cute, yummy and irresistible treats!! And the best thing is that kids can easily help you make these. (as you can see from my daughter’s helping hand in the picture.)
All you do is take a roll of Pillsbury peanut butter cookie dough and divide it into 24 equal parts, flatten each part out with your hand. Place a mini Reese’s peanut butter cup (The really small ones that are not even wrapped) in the center of the dough, and wrap the dough around it.
Drop it into the hole of a mini muffin tin and repeat 23 more times. Bake it in the oven pre heated to 350 degrees and bake it for about 13 minutes.
Let it cool and then, using a pastry big fitted with a large star tip, pipe the chocolate frosting on top, and then pop the cookie in your mouth and enjoy!!
Easy, peasy right?? Look at those cute little peanut butter cups in the center of the cookie!! Doesn’t that look mouth watering!!
I’m telling you, these Chocolate Frosted Peanut Butter Cookie Cups are just a little piece of peanut butter heaven in your mouth! And they are so quick and easy that you barely have to think about it!!
Trust me, you are never too busy for a yummy treat straight from your own oven when these tasty little cookie cups are involved!! 🙂
