White Chocolate Reese Pudding Cookie

So, I've been doing fairly well with this "healthy eating", and I have a few recipes to share with is not that day.  :)

 You see, once in a while, I have to have a white chocolate Reese.

It's about the only sweet that really tastes good to me anymore---I know, right?
I mean sweets and me used to go together like shoes and socks, peanut butter and jelly, salt and pepper---well, you get the idea.  But these little guys are now my quick go to when I want a little taste, and I'm even trying to get them out of sight out of mind.  SOOO--I thought to myself:

Self (because that's what I call me)--what about trying out a recipe for cookies for the kids?
I called myself BRILLIANT, and set off to fix some cookies.

Allow me to introduce you to this sweet treat.
This is a White Chocolate Reese Cup Cookie, but that's not all--
it's Peanut Butter, and Hershey Kiss Chocolate Drops, and Cheesecake Pudding--
It's a yummy cookie, and the kids are going to love it in their lunches.

Here's a quick glance of the ingredients I used (minus the eggs):
  I guess I told myself if I used sugar free pudding mix, and organic peanut butter all the calories would be deleted. Let's just roll with that idea, shall we? :)

Now I'm all about being a one-bowl mix type of girl, because frankly, the kitchen staff here is lacking.  
***LITTLE RANT:  I feel like the little red hen sometimes.
The mommy asks, "Who will help me fix (insert anything here)"  
"Not I," said the daddy.  "Not I," said the daughter. "Not I," said the son.  
The mommy asks, "Who will help me clean up the mess""
"Not I," said the daddy.  "Not I," said the daughter. "Not I," said the son.  
The mommy asks, "Who wants to try (insert ALMOST anything here)
Well, you know how the story goes! :)
Now this isn't all the time, thank goodness!!

Moving on---as I was saying--I'm all about wanting to use one bowl.
I know some recipes call for you mixing stuff up in separate bowls, but who needs another mess?
I did cut the Reese cups in a bowl--but everything else went into the mixer.
 I do cream and stir together as I add other ingredients, but I really do throw it all in one bowl.
Then fold in your white chocolate reeses and chocolate chips.

 Drop by spoonful onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
 Bake at 350 (or if you have convection oven--325) for 9 minutes.
 Then eat!! :)
