Reese's Peanut Buttercup Brownie Cookies
Some of my favorite cookies ever!  Who doesn't love chocolate and Reeses?  and when you put them together, it melts in your mouth.  What I love about these cookies is they aren't too sweet.  If you are like my husband who doesn't like things that are too rich these are the cookies for you.  They are so good.  You have to try them.

If you like Reeses, here is another recipe to try that uses them! Chocolate Peanut butter Cupcakes
