White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Christmas Cookies

Have you seen the Reese's White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups?  They exist.  Oh yes, they do!

After making these turkey cookies for Thanksgiving, I couldn't wait to use the white chocolate peanut butter cups for some Christmas cookies.  

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Christmas Cookies!

Visions of the *cutest* Santa cookies danced in my head for weeks.  I was SO excited to make them.

Except, they were totally creepy.  Mr. E actually took one look at them and started laughing.
Wanna see?!?

I was determined, though, so I came up with second best...carolers, red-nosed reindeer, and ornaments.

The cookie base is a white chocolate peanut butter cookie.  Buttercream is used for the decorating, and for attaching the peanut butter cup.

{psst...you can find white chocolate peanut butter cups on occasion in stores, OR you can order them by the case *ahem* from Hershey's or Amazon (gotta love free 2-day Prime shipping for such emergencies.)} ;)

You'll also need to spend about 20 minutes of your life digging through a bag of peanut butter M&Ms separating out the red ones. What you do with those other colors is your business.

  6. These are cute and I like the earmuffs on the carolers. You have more patience than I do. After the Santa's were *laughed* at I would have just tossed and walked :)

  8. All of them are adorable! I love the piped beard and hair on the left Santa. I'm picturing it on a flat Santa cookie with sanding sugar to make the hat look fuzzy. Love the Rudolphs and carolers, though. Your creativity always amazes me.
