Fast and Easy

I saw these first on The Pioneer Woman website and then Mama Koch made some and showed them on her blog. DD had a jewelry party tonight so I tried some to take with me. I am diabetic and shouldn't eat many and the great white hunter keeps saying he can't eat it all so it was a perfect chance to try them. They are really fast and easy and so good.

I wasn't happy with the brownie ones. I used Rolo candy and I think the Hersey Carmel Kiss would have been better. I had a hard time getting them out of the baking tin so they aren't as pretty either.

Quick recipe but The Pioneer Woman gives the whole thing in pictures on her "The Pioneer Woman Cooks" section of her site.

You need a roll of peanut butter cookie dough, and a package of Reese's miniature candies. Cut the cookie dough in 1 1/4 inch to 1 1/2 inch slices, then cut that slice into four quarters. Put the quarters in a greased mini muffin tin. Bake at 350 degrees 6 to 8 minutes (or golden brown). Remove from oven and quickly put a Reese's in each tin. I got twenty four out of one roll of dough. The chocolate ones are the brownie mix in a roll and Rolo candies. The brownie roll is softer so I filled the tins with a spoon, then added the Rolo after I took them out of the oven.

The ladies loved them at the party and we will see what the great white hunter thinks tomorrow. The party was fun, I usually avoid this type of thing where you are supposed to come to some one's house and spend money but it was DD after all. Good news was after I sat there and told everyone how I NEVER win anything, I won a pretty bracelet playing the game. (Wow, first Toni's prize and now this, need that lottery ticket).

Hey Norma, I'm with Kristie! They look great. Will have to try them sometime. I don't bake much, as it's only me to eat them, but maybe I can plan it so the little guys will be here *VBS*
A special thanks for stopping by today and leaving such a warm, sweet comment. And since we kinda know each others stories, it meant even more to me.
I wasn't feeling picked on or anything, simply that an opinion was formed without all the information. Interesting how she took it as a negative when I was more concerned about explaining why I'd never posted about that DD before. Are people interesting? Big hugs, Finn
