Reese's Puffs Cereal Cookies


For the most part, I enjoy clean, healthy eating. I try to stay away from frozen foods and I aim to eat meals that are as fresh as possible. But I have a weakness. Reese's Puffs cereal. I'm not sure if it's possible to find a cereal that's as bad for you as this one. However, I still enjoy it from time to time. The other day, after two days of enjoying my Reese's Puffs cereal in a bowl with milk, I had the idea to try Reese's Puffs in a different form: as a cookie! 

And it worked fabulously. 

Please enjoy...

Reese's Puffs Cereal Cookies

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs 
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
3/4 cups cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating until completely mixed in. Add vanilla and mix just until blended. 

In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter/sugar mixture and mix on low speed until well blended. Fold in Reese's Puffs cereal. 

Drop by very large spoonfuls on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 14 minutes.

Let cool for 5 minutes and transfer to a wire rack.
