You know you’re getting old when getting a new phone is not exciting. I recently upgraded by Samsung Galaxy S10 for a Google Pixel 6 Pro and I am not enjoying all the changes. No more bottom buttons? What is this an iPhone? Trash, I say.
My husband keeps reassuring me I’ll get use to it, as he made the switch from Samsung to Google preciously, and I will, but I’m just going to complain a little bit and try to get my settings in line until I do.
Also, this phone is massive so my thumbs can only do so much without all those bottom buttons. Who’s idea was it to put the back button on the top of the screen? Giants I tell you. But I digress.
Not only it today Bob’s 38th birthday, it’s also National Junk Food Day! I’m not entirely sure is Reese’s Pieces are considered junk food or just candy, but I figured it was a good enough excuse to share a new cookie recipe made with them.
I took my favorite chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe, added extra chocolate to the base, and instead of just semisweet chocolate, also added peanut butter chips, and Reese’s Pieces.
These were actually made for a friend’s sister’s wedding and I was told they were particularly popular with the kids. Sounds like they had some smart kids at that wedding if you ask me.

This is so yummy!! I really love it.
I loved this recipe so much . It’s really awesome
So glad to hear it!
Would unsweetened cocoa work? And do you think (for those of us who are lazy) that this could work in bar form?
Hey Alison, I always use unsweetened cocoa powder so yes it works! As for the bars, that’s a great idea. I have not tried it personally to be able to provide guidance on time or pan size, however. I’d guess a 9×13-inch for 15-20 minutes to start. Enjoy!
