The best cookie of 2015! Reese's Marshmallow chocolate cookies!

Well shoot, there’s just something so blasted good about Reese’s and marshmallows. I blame Cade. He loves our chocolate marshmallow cookies and I love our Reese’s peanut butter marshmallow cookie pie, so my brain was swirling with combining the two loves. I mean couldn’t Reese’s and I just agree to have me as their blogger ambassador? I don’t think anyone is as in love with Reese’s in recipes as I am. Don’t believe me? Start with these Reese’s Marshmallow Frosted Cookies, then the two links above, and finally scroll to the bottom of the post and check out even more Reese’s recipes including the link to our Reese’s Krispies recipes which goes viral every fall.

The best cookie of 2015! Chocolate Reese's Marshmallow frosted cookies!

Whoever thought to put peanut butter and chocolate together was a real genius. I wish I knew who it was and I would like to give them the biggest hug. Genius, pure genius right there. In fact, I bought a little bag of Reese’s pb cups as a reward for our oldest daughter. She has needed a little bit of encouraging lately to keep her dirty clothes off of the floor. Discipline and consequences just weren’t getting us anywhere and although she’s actually incredibly organized and likes a clean room the clothes didn’t seem to bother her. So we gave her goals and treats when she met them and problem solved. BOOM ! And now I get to make more cookies. Bring on the goodness!
