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


Husband: You just can’t.


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.


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.

  1. sue @ Cakeballs, cookies and more

    So funny, my hubby won’t eat any of my baking, so I question our relationship daily. But as far as I know there are no videos, and if there are I never want to find out!

  2. 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.


    Cookies look great!

    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!

    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. 🙂

  5. 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. 🙂 Also, I have totally done the trash thing. No shame!

  6. That is crazy! If he is trying to go on a reality show why on earth would he not tell you? People are weird. But I love these blossoms.

  7. 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.

    my jaw dropped when i saw the first photo…these really couldn’t be any more perfect right now!

    Trashed cakes are something no one ever needs to know about;-) My husband doesn’t like peanut butter, which is basically as crazy as not liking chocolate!
