Just Two Ingredients...

... and you have a hit party treat! "Reese Cup Treats", as we call them, are a famous Dickman (our maiden name) dessert - requested for every family get together or party and loved by kids and adults alike. They couldn't be easier... or more delicious. All you need is a tube of peanut butter cookie dough, a bag of mini Reese's, and a mini muffin pan!

Ok, now for the world's easiest directions...
Cut the cookie dough into 9 slices, and cut each slice into quarters. Then plop 'em into the muffin pan and bake as directed on the cookie package (350 for 9-12 minutes... I tend to like my baked goods under done, so I do 9 mins). One tube of cookie dough will make 36 treats, so if you have another mini muffin pan you can prepare both pans (or pan and a half, actually) at the same time. 
While the cookies are in the oven, unwrap the Reese's Cups. Begin immediately, because it may take the entire time and you need to have them ready right when the "cookies" come out. I know it's tempting to snack on the Reese's Cups while unwrapping, but note that if you buy the regular size bag of minis, you will only have a couple left over. Also note not to leave your Reese's anywhere they may melt like I did... I put them in the refrigerator afterwards, but they're still pretty warped looking. Whoops! Luckily they taste just as good. :) As soon as you take the cookies out, press a Reese's Cup into each one. Press them nearly all the way down, but not all the way as you want to leave a little dough underneath. 

And there you have it... REESE CUP TREATS!
Let them cool completely before removing from the pan. I usually use a small knife to go around the edges and loosen them - then they should just come right out! Now you have the perfect dessert/snack for that party you're going to this weekend!
