White Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Blossoms

Husbands are kind of a mystery.

At least my husband is.

 

We recently had a conversation about how I don’t “share” things with him.

Yes, this is true.

I don’t always share how much I have spent at Target, I figure he’ll find out soon enough when the AMEX bill comes in the mail.

I don’t always share with him that a “random mother at school” wore Crocs with socks and pleated jeans to basketball practice.

I don’t always share that the laundry didn’t get done today because I had important research regarding a certain show on Bravo to do.

I don’t always share that I threw away leftover cake because I cannot be tempted, only to eat a bite or two of said cake out of the garbage.  ITWASONTOP!

I figure some things are just best kept to ourselves.

 

BUT, here’s the mystery…

While husband is concerned with knowing all about MY day, he decides that he is going to MAKE A VIDEO of himself to send in to a certain “survival reality show” AND NOT TELL ME!!

What the crap?

 

So yeah, here’s how it went down…

Husband: Oh, look at this email that I just got.

Me: What email?  From who?

Husband:  Oh, it’s just an email from a major television network saying that they got my application for “survival reality show”.

Me:  Umm, what?

Husband:  Yeah, I mentioned to you that I was thinking about possibly doing that.

Me:  Yeah, like 5 years ago!  Don’t you have to make a video for your application??

Husband:  Yes.

Me:  Sooooo, where’s your video?

Husband:  You can’t see it

Me:  WHY NOT?

Husband: You just can’t.

Me:  WHHHHHYYYYYYY??

Husband:  No reason, except I make no sense whatsoever and always want you to share things but I don’t have to share and you have to deal with it.

Ok, maybe he didn’t say those EXACT words, but that’s the basic idea.

 

So now, 2 days later he won’t budge.

I haven’t currently gone on his computer and tried to find the video, because I am trying to respect his privacy…and maybe also because I am worried that the video will be super lame and I might not want to sleep with him ever again.

 

So yeah.

My husband has applied for a reality show and is planning on being on television every Thursday at 8:00 for ALL OF AMERICA TO SEE, but he won’t show me his application video.

Nonsense.

 

Another nonsensical mystery about my husband is that he doesn’t like chocolate.

Did you hear me?

I am beginning to question our entire relationship.

 

He likes candy, but not chocolate.

So in an effort to get in his good graces long enough to get him to let me watch his video I made a simple change to a popular cookie.

 

I wasn’t even going to post these because it’s such a basic idea, but they were really good.

And since I am such a sharer of ideas and information and such, I figured I would go for it.

See, husband?  I share!

White Chocolate Reese’s Peanut Butter Blossoms.

It’s a basic, but yummy, peanut  butter cookie…

Just form your dough into balls, roll them in sugar and bake!

Unwrap your Reese’s while the cookies are baking, so you are stocked and loaded when they come out of the oven.

Immediately press the small Reese’s cup into the center of the cookie.

Let the chocolate set before you eat them, otherwise they get a bit messy.  I mean, from what I hear.

And that is all.

If these cookies don’t work, then I am out of ideas.

      I don’t eat brown chocolate either. I only like white chocolate (because it’s not really chocolate) and I”M A WOMAN :O Yes, most people have the same reaction: “Are you serious? What’s wrong with you?” Hehe

  1. Treva – WHAT?!?!?! You’ve NEVER heard of white chocolate reeses cups?!?! Oh my goodness! πŸ˜‰

    Seriously… they are DELISH!

    and my favorite reeses ever!

    Now I need some. Too bad I still have Christmas decorations to put up… wait, did I just admit that, OUT LOUD?! (hides head in shame)

  2. This is my dream cookie. I wish I had a couple right now. I never tell my husband how much time I spend at Target either. He’s better off not knowing…but this made me wonder what he doesn’t tell me. Hmmmmm.

  3. Kasey

    That would drive mee completely INSANE! Wondering what was on that video would be ALL I ever thought about. I’m feeling for you girl. Seriously, I hope you made the cookies for yourself, not for him. Maybe if he’s shares then you can, otherwise I say eat them all. They look delish, thanks for another nummy recipe.

  4. craziness. well if he gets on it you’ll be able to see his video then hopefully. he will be gone for a month and winning a million dollars and you will be surviving on garbage cake and take out. when you do see it you need to share. I mean we all want to see who to cheer for!!

  5. I kind of really hope he gets chosen. Because you KNOW they always play the application videos. And you KNOW then all of us are going to be virtually holding hands, sitting around our tvs watching it.

    While eating these. In moral support.

    Okay, you sooooo completely, crack me up! Have been an avid reader of your blog for a few weeks now; I just had to let you know what a delight your stories are, not to mention how yummy your recipes are! And as soon as you get your hands on that video, do let us know where you post it so we can see why your DH is being all secretive about it! πŸ™‚

  7. I really want to make them!! they are like even more delicious thumbprint cookies, I just need to find the white reeses in here I don’t think they sell them πŸ™

  8. Dianne

    What a lovely food craft you have there. I love white chocolate and peanut butter but i haven’t thought of the idea of combining both for a cookie. I will try this one and see if can make it a good one.

  9. Ashley

    I just recently found your blog, and this post had me laughing so hard. Also, I would never in a million years want to be on a reality TV show. But I will gladly watch your husband if he makes it on. πŸ™‚ Also, I have totally done the trash thing. No shame!

  10. Okay. I’ve already told you how I feel about PB and chocolate…and you practically disowned me for it. I’m scared to tell you that I haven’t tried the white chocolate cups yet. But I feel safe in the knowledge that I just haven’t been able to find them anywhere. I’m convinced that I’m going to LOVE them. Then do I get to be alive to you again??

    In other news, the fact that you might be so humiliated by your husband’s possible lameness that you may never want to sleep with him again?

    Made me laugh so hard I choked. On nothing.

    Thanks for that. πŸ™‚

  11. Apparently hiding trashed cakes, target expenses, and trashy tv getting in the way of laundry are things well all keep from our husbands! At least I am not alone!
    My husband doesn’t like chocolate either, totally makes me wonder how we ever got married. He would love these cookies!

  12. Moontaj

    You know…if he dosen’t want to share his video then you shouldn’t “share” yourself with him.

    Only fair.

    It might make him break sooner than later.

    :p

    Cookies look great!

  13. Vanessa G

    Wow! I am weird also. I don’t like chocolate either. I like white chocolate, but it’s not really chocolate. Anyways, I am obsessed with peanut butter!! I made these same cookies for “Santa” on Christmas. He really liked them. πŸ™‚

  14. OMG..That is some seriously funny stuff….1st off..pleated jeans???? OMG, I didn’t even know they made those.
    Hey, I wear crocs with socks…only in the privacy of my own home in the kitchen.
    Thatis soooo completely bizarre your man won’t show you the video. I dunno, I would probably hold out on sex until he showed it to me. He would cave in a week..I am sure, he’s a man!

  15. Sarah

    I am having a serious peanut butter cookie craving. I have everything to make these except light brown sugar. I have dark though. Will that work ok?

    1. shelly

      Sure, or you could half the dark brown sugar with granulated to lighten it up a little. The dark will just give you a deeper flavor. I love dark brown sugar πŸ™‚

  16. Lisa MIchaels

    Oh my gosh! You are hilarious! I usually skip the stories on blogs and get right to the recipe but I love your blog. It is so entertaining. Fantastic recipes too!

    Thanks so much
