I am basically a scientist, so I know this to be true.
I had candy for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and all the snacks in between.
Why is Easter candy the cutest ever? It’s basically impossible to say no to the cute, pastel colored, egg shaped treats.
So I ate.
I went to bed full. Not recommended.
But I woke up with a strong resolve.
No more sugar.
Then I got out of bed, which was my tragic mistake.
My house is filled with a tortuous level of peanut butter cups, cream filled eggs and miniature candy bars.
If the Easter Bunny was really a nice girl, she would deliver all the candy and then that very same night come and take it all away.
Whatever Easter Bunny. Way to think about YOURSELF.
But since I am a giver, I decided to use my leftover candy for good and not evil. And by “mine”, I clearly mean, “my children’s”, but who’s counting?
You will have these beauties together in no time.
The inspiration for these cookie cups came from here. I just made a few small changes and totally cheated by using pre-made cookie dough.
What you will end up with is a peanut butter cup smack dab in the middle of a Sugar Cookie and Chocolate Chip Cookie Three-Way.
It’s a dirty cookie.
The Ultimate Cookie Cup.
Start with a package of pre-made sugar cookie dough and a package of pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough:
Then assemble them…sugar cookie on bottom, peanut butter cup in the middle and the chocolate chip cookie on top…
Place the snuggly peanut butter cup in your lined muffin tin…
I’ll start my diet tomorrow.
Also, since you all seem to love my muffin pan, HERE’S where I bought it.
