Reese's Pieces Cookies

Target is starting to stock Halloween stuff. I can't believe it's almost the holidays and this time next year I'll have a little munchkin to dress up. I loved dressing up when I was little. Of course my favorite was a princess costume. Did you dress-up when you were little?
In sticking with the Fall theme, I picked up a bag of Reese's Pieces on a pregnancy whim and decided when I got home they would be yummier as a cookie. I used the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip recipe (omit the chocolate chips and nuts), added 1/4 C of unsweetened cocoa and about 3/4 of the bag of Reese's Pieces. Yummy and festive. I'll be baking them again for Halloween treats.

In other news, I'm just now fitting into maternity clothes. I had no idea how comfortable pregnancy jeans could be. I don't see why women don't wear these all the time. No buttons or zippers...heavenly comfort. I also bought some cute yoga pants which I immediately change into when I get home from work.
I have an ultrasound next week to find out if the baby is a boy or girl, cross your fingers that the position is right and the tech will be able to tell us. So exciting!


  1. These cookies look awesome. iI have often wondered why women don't spend more time in maternity jeans too.
    Happy pre-Halloween.
