Please enjoy these easy dark chocolate Halloween cookies with Reese’s pieces candy! They’re the perfect addition to your SPOOKY holiday!
Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. From the spooky stories all over the internet, to the colors and the candy and the air turning colder. It’s been my favorite since I was little, and I tend to spend the Halloween Holiday watching all my favorite seasonal movies, like Hocus Pocus, Practical Magic, and this year, the second season of Stranger Things. Another one of my favorite things to do is DRESS UP. I was Stevie Nicks this year, and I lost the costume contest by ONE POINT.
I know that’s really not why you’re here – but I had to indulge myself on my very favorite holiday. But you’re here for the cookies. And they’re coming, I promise. But, I wanted to let you guys know that the FIRST episode of OKC OVER EASY on the SPY fm podcast network is up RIGHT NOW! It’s a halloween special, and I interview my friend Kelly about her bitchin Halloween party, we talk trash halloween candy, and Kelly tells a really spooky story that she had repressed in the back of her mind.
Now these cookies – they are so good. They use 3 different types of chocolate chips, Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa, which I didn’t even know was a thing until this recipe. They make the cookies extra dark and spooky – which is my favorite kind. The peanut butter adds a great flavor, and they only lasted a few days in my house.
