Little Box Brownie: Pumpkin Reese Cookies

Pumpkin Reese Cookies

Om nomm nomm, mmmmmmm cookies.... That about sums it up.

These little ones are my tribute to spooky Halloween, not that it is really celebrated in this part of the world. Why I'm not sure, who wouldn't love to get bags full of sweet lollies and candies from people, I know I would. As a kid I dreamed of living in the US, or at least visiting during Halloween, so I could get bucketfuls of sweets. But sadly that never happened. But now I'm old and no one can tell me what to do, I can buy all the sweets and lollies I want arrrrrhaaa haaa haaa. So when I was in this candy shop the other day just breathing in the sweet aromas, I spied a huge packet full of little Reeses, which are American chocolate covered peanut butter cups. So I thought it was more than fitting to make some pumpkin reese cookies, for you all to celebrate the spookiest night of the year.
