Reese's Peanut Butter Chocolate Pudding Cookies

I LOVE peanut butter and chocolate.  I usually like plain chocolate chip cookies but I thought these cookies were WAY yummy.

One of the Four Year Old Classes at preschool is collecting recipes for a project.  A sweet fun mom from my afternoon class shared this recipe.  I was headed down to see my girls in Texas last weekend and I couldn't wait to try these.  I love them.  This is a great new recipe to add to my cookie repertoire.  Give them a try!!

Reese's Peanut Butter Chocolate Pudding Cookies

Makes 70-80 cookies!

2 ¼ cup all- purpose flour                             2 large eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda                                 1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt                                          1 Tbsp honey
1 (3.4 ounce) box instant vanilla pudding        1 cup milk chocolate chips
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened                   1 cup Reese’s pieces candy
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter                        1 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup sugar                                                                   
1/2 cup light brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or a Silpat.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and pudding; set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter, peanut butter, sugar and brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes.  Add eggs, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Add vanilla extract and honey and beat until combined. 
Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture, beat to combine. 
Add chocolate chips, Reese’s pieces and peanut butter chips and mix until incorporated. 
Roll a tablespoon or so of dough into a 1 inch ball between your palms and then place it on the prepared baking sheet.   Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing the balls about 2 inches apart (you should be able to fit 12-16 cookies on each sheet). 
Using your palm, gently flatten the dough balls until they are about ¾ inch thick.

Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool for a couple minutes and enjoy!
