Reese’s Puffs Pudding Cookies

Reese’s Puffs Cookies
     Have you ever tried the Reese’s Puffs cereal? My husband likes to get a box every once in a while, so it’s not a staple in our home but an occasional treat. Since they taste great plain, I wondered how they would behave in a cookie. I added several cups of the cereal in place of chocolate chips in my cookie recipe, and they baked wonderfully. The cereal stays amazingly crisp and adds a pleasant peanut butter flavor throughout the whole cookie. Hmmm…..since there is cereal involved, do you suppose this counts as a healthy breakfast? 😉

  1. I’ve never tried – or heard of – this before but I imagine it’s like rice puffs.  And if it is like what I imagine..I bet it’s delicious! Great idea!
