reese's cookie bars

after easter and my birthday, we had wayyyyyyy too many
sweets around our 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 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!


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (or butter)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 20 (170 grams) reese's peanut butter cups

  • directions
    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!
