Reynolds Kitchens® Tips

Reynolds Kitchens tip

Making Meal Magic is simple. Reynolds products help you to make your meals easier and faster. Learn how to cook your best with Reynolds Kitchens.


  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 24 miniature chocolate-coated caramel-topped nougat bars with peanuts


Step 1

In a large mixing bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter and peanut butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Using a wooden spoon, beat in honey and milk until well combined.

Step 2

For each cookie, pat 1 tablespoon of the dough into a 2-inch circle. Place 1 piece of candy in the center of the circle.

Step 3

Shape the dough around candy to form 1 1/2-inch ball. Place the balls 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet lined with Reynolds® Parchment Paper.

Step 4

Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are light brown. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool.

Step 5

Mix dough as directed. Shape into 1-inch balls. Roll in additional granulated sugar to coat.

Step 6

Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten by making crisscross marks with the tines of a fork. Bake and cool as directed.
