REESE’S peanut butter cups are the number one candy in our house. Adam is a huge, huge fan. One year for Christmas, our friends gave him an entire shirt box stuffed with them. They barely lasted.
When I make a dessert, I always have Adam rate it on a scale of 1-10. The only desserts that get a 10 include chocolate and peanut butter, even better if they include REESE’S peanut butter cups too. This recipe, it was a perfect 10.
Cookies are another favorite around here. Actually, desserts in general because I can say that about cakes and pies too. (Please try not to say that like I do in my head – like the line from Deuce Bigelow… cakes and pies, cakes and pies…. Seriously I just can’t..)
But what I’m really trying to say is, anything and everything sweet is a hit. But one super special dessert that we really love – the cookie pie. Or as some of you know it, the pizookie recipe. Even better than a plain ol’ (delicious) cookie pie is a peanut butter cup cookie pie. Warm brown sugar peanut butter cookie cookie pie with warm, gooey, chocolatey peanut butter cups. Top it off with some ice cream and you’ve got yourself a party in your mouth. Yes puh-lease.
Also a yes please? Basketball in March. My family and I are big sports fans. College basketball is especially big around here since we don’t have our own in-state pro team to root for. So you know we’ll be noshing on some sweet treats as we (hopefully) watch our team cruise to victory. Hope I didn’t just jinx it…
Served straight up, this peanut butter cup cookie pie makes for a perfect, sweet snack. Great for hanging out with your friends watching some basketball, perfect for packing up and bringing to the park or wherever the snack attack hits.
Served a la mode, and you’ve got yourself a kicked up dessert. Cold vanilla ice cream pairs so well with a warm peanut butter cookie pie. It gets all melty and gooey and awesome.
For an even more decadent treat, turn it into a sundae. That’s right, turn that snacking slice in to the ultimate dessert. You won’t have a care in the world with this little ditty in your hands. Even if your bracket is completely destroyed.
Walmart has a really great display of REESE’S products ready to use for snacks and treats while you’re watching the basketball tournaments. Because, hello. What’s better than candy when you’re watching some action packed sports? Ok, candy and watching your team win. That’s a winning combination.
