Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

What is your favorite type of chocolate candy?
Mine is Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
(Actually, the Eggs are my favorite!)
I love all things Peanut Butter Chocolate.
When I saw these at the store a few months ago, I knew I needed to have them.
FYI....I found them in the candy isle.
I put them on vanilla ice cream & it is a perfect ice cream topping.
Aren't they cute?
And, they come unwrapped, so you can just pop a few in your mouth if you want :)

I was thinking how good they would be in cookies, so I made tweaked one of my recipes and they turned out SO good!

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cups packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 package instant vanilla pudding mix (3.4 ounce size)
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup Peanut Butter
1 bag Reese's mini Peanut Butter Cups

I made up these last night & they turned out SO good.
I used my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe as the base, but didn't use chocolate chips, instead I used these mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and I added 1/4 cup of peanut butter to the dough.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift together the flour and baking soda, set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and white sugar.Beat in the instant pudding mix until blended. Stir in the eggs and vanilla.
Blend in the flour mixture.
Finally, stir in the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

I used a spoon to do this part. If you use your mixer, it will mash up your peanut butter cups, so use wooden spoon/spatula.
Drop cookies by rounded spoonfuls onto cookie sheets (lined with parchment paper or a silpa mat!)
I always use a cookie scoop. Makes nice rounded cookies!
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven.
Edges should be golden brown. Don't over cook them!
(I always check them at 8-9 minutes)

If you are a peanut butter fan or a fan of Reese's Peanut Butter cups, you will LOVE these cookies!
They are soft & delicious.
Enjoy!

  5. Okay...after reading your post on Sat. I saw these little gems in the Target ad yesterday. Just happened to be at Target yesterday and just happened to pick up a bag.

    My kids were dying to open them up right there and then but I told them that I would be making cookies sometime soon so they would have to wait.

    Thanks for the great idea. I always make peanut butter cookies with a regular reeses minature in the middle but never thought to do this :)

    HOpe you and baby are feeling well. PS- in case you don't know...Old Navy is 30% off right now if you need some more maternity clothes.

    Hugs,
    Trisha
