In my opinion, Easter has the best candy of any holiday by far, and the best candy of all is Reese’s Eggs. There is just something about the ratio of peanut butter to chocolate that is so much better in the eggs than the regular peanut butter cups. You have to get the right eggs, too. There are multiple sizes. The BEST Reese’s Eggs are the bigger ones. You know, the ones that come in a six pack. Don’t get me wrong, all of the Reese’s are delicious, but these are hands down the best! With Easter coming up, and these eggs calling my name from every aisle of every store, I felt like I needed to make a recipe using them.
Carrot Cake Cookie and Cream Cheese Icing Sandwiches
I have been racking my brain trying to come up with a great Easter dessert to share with you guys. Of course carrot cake was what I kept thinking about, and I absolutely love carrot cake, but I feel like there are already so many amazing carrot cake recipes out there. I was inspired to do something different. I had the idea to do carrot cake cookies, and I worked on a recipe for those. I was ready to roll with that, but then I started to realize that one of the best parts of carrot cake, for me, is the cream cheese icing. Don’t get me wrong, these cookies are delicious on their own, but I just felt like I would miss that icing. Then I decided, why not have the cookies AND the icing?
