{No Bake Reese's Pieces Cookies}

As promised I have a sweet treat for you today!! And, did you know that today is National Peanut Butter Cookie Day?  Seriously who comes up with these food holidays?  Can I sit on the committee?

Peanut butter cookies might be my absolute favorite (mainly because I am obsessed with peanut butter)!  So what better way to celebrate National Peanut Butter Cookie day then with an easy no bake (because who wants to turn their oven on in the summer?) peanut butter cookie that is studded with Reese's Pieces and Peanuts?  I tweaked Brown Eyed Bakers delicious no bake cookies to create this mouth watering no bake, and they are on point!  Full of peanuty goodness thanks to chunky peanut butter and studded with Reese's Pieces... Yum!

My advice, whip up a batch of these, grab a glass of milk and enjoy National Peanut Butter Cookie Day!

No Bake Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies
Makes 24 

1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter
1 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar 
1/2 Cup Milk 
2/3 Cup Crunchy Peanut Butter 
3 Cups Quick Cooking Oats 
1/2 Cup Reese's Pieces Candies 

1- In a medium saucepan combine butter, brown sugar and milk.  Bring to a boil and boil for one minute.
2- Remove saucepan from heat, stir in peanut butter.  Stir until peanut butter is melted and smooth.
3- Slowly pour oats into peanut butter mixture and mix until well combined.  Allow mixture to slightly cool (about 10 min) before stirring in the Reese's Pieces.
4- Drop cookies onto a parchment lined baking sheet (about 2 tablespoons each) and allow to cool for 30 minutes before enjoying (thats the hard part)!

Store in an air tight container up to 2 weeks!  I like to put mine in the freezer and enjoy them frozen!
