Hershey’s Nugget Peanut Butter Cookies

August 14, 2017Teresa

Hershey’s Nugget Peanut Butter Cookies are a sensational spin on Peanut Butter Cookies. While these cookies start with traditional Peanut Butter Cookie dough, I added chopped milk chocolate Hershey’s Nuggets (the ones without the almonds). The chocolaty peanut butter flavor was amazing.

We always have way too much candy on our hands. I usually refrigerate or freeze it to use it later. I had these two giant bags of Hershey’s Nuggets in my refrigerator and was trying to think of creative ways to use them. I settled on Hershey’s Nugget Cookies and these jewels for ways to use part of the nuggets. (I also have more recipes coming!)

Last month our church had a Kid’s Fest (carnival) at a local park. We provided lots of games, activities and food for the community. I recruited about 20-25 folks to bake homemade cookies. I made about a thousand cookies myself, and these Hershey’s Nugget Peanut Butter Cookies were one of about ten different kinds of cookies that I made for that festival. They were a real hit because who doesn’t enjoy chocolate and peanut butter together!

If you’re looking for a scrumptious way to enjoy Peanut Butter Cookies in the future, I highly recommend this recipe to get you salivating. The milk chocolate from the Hershey’s Nuggets (silver wrapper) makes these cookies delectable. But don’t just take my word for it. Give them a try yourself! Especially if you’re trying to get rid of Halloween or Christmas candy. 😉
