Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies with Reece’s Pieces for Halloween

Halloween is in 2 days! I can’t believe it. It feels like yesterday that I was at home in Regina getting ready to take my niece trick or treating, but that was a whole year ago already!

I decided to whip up these tasty little cookies to celebrate Halloween this year.

They are easy and sooooo good. And the Reece’s Pieces really make them look Halloweeny!

What you need,

¾ cup butter
½ cup peanut butter, smooth
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tbsp. honey
1 tsp. vanilla
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 cup Reece’s Pieces Candy

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Line your baking sheet with parchment or a silpat and set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer combine the butter, peanut butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.

Add in the eggs one at a time and mix until well incorporated.
Add in the vanilla.

In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda and pudding.
Gradually add the dry ingredients to the stand mixer while on low speed until the flour is all mixed in.

Stir in the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and Reece’s Pieces.

Drop by the heaping tablespoon onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown and puffy.

Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the cookies cool for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Cool completely and store in an airtight container for a week.

These little cookies are amazing! The pudding makes them puffy and soft. I love the little crunch you get from the Reece’s Pieces.

I hope you all have a Spooktacular Halloween!!

  1. Again, I can vouch for how completely AWESOME these cookies are, because I scarfed about 10 of them back in one sitting after Jen made them! Love, love, love them.
