after easter and my birthday, we had wayyyyyyy too many
sweets around our apartment...so i decided to turn some into
even sweeter sweets! :) brilliant right? those reese's eggs are too
good to be true, but we had like 20 left sitting on our coffee table
and i couldn't take it anymore...so i chopped them up, mixed up
a cookie bar dough, stirred them in, and ta-da: reese's cookie bars.
we ate them warm with milk and we were happy campers.
you could obviously substitute different candy bars, i think the
dough turned out just right where it forms a good bar texture.
but start with the reese's combo --- you won't regret it!
preheat oven to 350 degrees F. spray an 8 or 9 inch square pan
and set aside. in a bowl, beat coconut oil (or butter), sugars, and
vanilla until creamy. add in egg and beat.
in another bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.
add the flour mixture in a little bit at a time, beating
each time until well combined. unwrap and chop up reese's cups.
then, stir them in by hand. press cookie dough into the
square pan, bake for 20-25 minutes and enjoy!
