Do you see that cross-section of peanut butter goodness? I am drooling as I type this.


Our supremely sweet-toothed "baby" brother's birthday was last weekend, and we decided there was no better way to send him back to school than armed with a disgusting amount of sweet treats.

College-aged metabolisms can handle the madness :)

I fear that I have set the bar pretty high for myself with the Slutty Brownies, so just any old cookie wouldn't do.


So I took the world's best chocolate chip cookie recipe, the Nestle Tollhouse classic, but only used half of the chocolate chips it called for. Then I squished a little Reeses baking square down into each spoonful and covered it with a smidge more dough.

The cookies were much bigger than usual to accommodate the Reeses so they took longer to bake, but it was worth the wait.

Without question, one of the best things I've ever made!
