  1. Place the Reese’s Frankcups in the refrigerator to help cleanly remove from the wax paper and also minimize the melting process.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to blend the peanut butter, butter, white sugar and brown sugar together until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla and continue mixing until well combined.
  5. Add the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix until everything is well incorporated.
  6. Using a large cookie scoop, form 24 dough balls.
  7. Roll each dough ball in granulated sugar and place on the cookie sheet, evenly apart.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the bottoms start to turn light golden brown. Do not overcook.
  9. Meanwhile, carefully unwrap the reese’s from the fridge being careful when removing the wax paper cup.
  10. When the cookies are done baking, press the reese’s brown side down into the cup.
  11. Place in the fridge to minimize melting.
  12. Use the black writing gel to draw frankenstein’s face and gently press the candy eyeballs into the chocolate to complete the cookies.
