Springtime Easter Reese Stuffed Oreos have the sweetness from the chocolate, the crunch from the cookie and a creaminess from the peanut butter! Topped with little sugar flowers, they’re just perfect for Easter and Spring!
Routine has never really been my thing. I always try to stick to stuff and then I get bored or forgetful while I wonder off into other directions. Up until now there have been two things that I’ve stuck with and that have become natural for me, this blog and my marriage. hahaha 😉 Everything else just kind of comes of goes. Well that was until I just realized that without promising myself that I’d do it, I’ve actually fallen into a morning routine. You see something like that it totally not normal for me. Before I start my day, I take a fish oil pill, a few of my bio cleanse pills from Plexus, drink my pink Plexus pink drink, and 4 little aspirin pills. After all of that, I wait about 30 minutes and eat a little packet of Organic oatmeal, now did I buy this oatmeal because it was organic and because I was going to go all healthy and eat organic? No, I bought it because it’s in little individual packets that a local woman puts together and sells at the Farmer’s Market, the organic part is just a plus, however, every morning I find myself eating one of these packets for breakfast. This is also a big deal because I’m not an early morning eating kind of person.
But that’s my little routine that I’ve developed and If something happens that prevents me from doing that it totally messes up my day. Well I mean I still function haha but I feel like something is missing. Psst. Can I tell you a little personal secret that I’ve been dealing with over the past few months? I wasn’t really going to say anything but I just feel like I need to type it out haha. So, I keep having panic attacks, like huge ones.
My mind gets so worked up over this one little subject that I literally send myself into a panic attack and think I’m going to die. You know what I’m panicking over? A heart attack. My mind has convinced its self that I’m going to have a heart attack, so much to the point that I wake up in the middle of the night freaking out sometimes. I have carpel tunnel in both arms/wrists so my hands and arms tingle all the time, but now if they go numbs I automatically think I’m going to die. I’m also being 100% serious, not like the “omg I’m going to die haha”, NO, it’s like a full on panic that my heart is going to stop beating.
None of this started until my friend Joan (who was huge in the blogging community) passed away last year from a heart attack and months before that my friend Crystal lost her husband to one too. Ever since then I’ve been in a silent panic. When we were in Chicago last year, I was rooming with Crystal and got really ill. I just felt awful and that night I started having a panic attack and I had to call Thomas so that he could calm me down because I was almost to the point where I was going to walk next door to the fire department and freak out. I’m a mess I tell ya.
It’s one of the reasons that I cut back on carbs and junk even more than I had been. I mean we had been doing good about eating right but now I’m like paranoid. I mean I’m not giving up my favorites like 100% but um….I haven’t had pasta in 2 weeks. That my friends is HUGE for me. Heck, I had rice for the first time in 2 weeks last night.
No, I’m not saying that I think getting rid of pasta and rice will keep me from having a heart attack, but it makes me feel better physically so that makes me feel better mental. I’ve also cut my “in moderation” level down A LOT. I’ve always been in the mindset of “everything in moderation” but it’s really hitting home for me now. For example, the Chocolate Dipped Robin Egg Cookies that I posted the other day, normally I wouldn’t have thought twice about eating a few while I tested them out and then maybe having one later that night or the next day.
Nope, well, of course I had to test taste one or two while I was baking since I was looking for that perfect texture but I didn’t have the whole cookie, just a bite and then I put the rest of my “sample cookies” in a baggie for Thomas. Then I had 1 over the course of the weekend, it was delicious, but I packaged them all up and delivered them out to people I knew. My taste buds wanted to have ALL THE COOKIES, my brain won that battle though. Ok, so I didn’t give them all away ONLY because of that, I really did want to share them with everyone because they were amazing but I did want them out of the house.
Just like these Reese Stuffed Oreos, they are amazing but after taste, half of a half of one I packaged them up and off they went with the cookies. I had made stuffed oreos before when I made the Rolo Stuffed Oreos last year so I knew what they tasted like. I know, I know. What an odd subject to be jabbering on about when I’m sharing a Reese Stuffed Oreos recipe with you today. You’ll have to excuse me, I just wanted to chat.
I think you know that eating one of these Reese Stuffed Oreos (or two) or whatever isn’t going to give you a heart attack. You’re smarter than that. haha I just wanted to write today, my panic was on my mind and well this is my blog so technically I can write what I wanna write, I guess. haha.
So thanks for listening. You’re the best. Hopefully my paranoid self will calm down soon. I don’t want to be all crazy and be like “well, moving on to Reese Stuffed Oreos now” but that’s exactly what I’m going to do. You’ve had to listen to me enough today, let me share a cookie with you and listen to your fears and problems for a while.

TIPS for these Springtime Easter Reese Stuffed Oreos:
- When you’re assembling these, twist the sandwich cookies apart carefully. Lay the half with the filling on the bottom (with the filling up), dab on a little melted chocolate, sit the unwrapped peanut butter cup onto that, dab a little melted chocolate onto the peanut butter cup and then lay the 2nd part of the cookie sandwich onto that. This will help it all stay together.
- Build a bunch at once and then let them sit in the fridge on a plate for about 5-10 minutes. This will help keep them together.
- When you go to dip them, make sure that the chocolate is not super hot. You don’t want to start melting the peanut butter cup. The dipping chocolate should be smooth and creamy but you should be able to touch it without it burning your finger.
- Let these cool and chocolate harden completely after dipping them before eating.
- You don’t have to put anything on top of them when you make them. I just added flowers for a “springtime Easter treat”, if you’re looking for little flowers you can find them here. (I got mine from Walmart but I’ve seen them at Hobby Lobby too!)
- I used the yellow springtime oreos just to give them a pop of color but regular ones will work just fine (or any flavor you want to use!)
