Reese’s Chocolate Cookies

I saw this recipe for Reese’s peanut butter chocolate cookies on King Arthur Flour and immediately wanted to make them. It uses mini Reese’s peanut butter cups! Everything is so much cuter as minis.

The original recipe has peanut butter in the chocolate cookie dough. I decided to make regular chocolate cookies and add the mini reese’s cups because my family isn’t so fond of peanut butter cookies. The cookies were rich and chocolatey and the peanut butter cups added just a little bit of peanut butter to the mix.

I had so much fun eating the little peanut butter cups with their little mini centers.

  1. I had my very first peanutbutter cup ever just last weekend. It was SO good. Oh my… Seeing these cookies makes my mouth water.

  2. I love the mini Reese’s too, these look great!

    • I was sad that they melted a little, but yeah mini Reese’s are so cool! I probably ate way too many though. Damn their mini size!

  3. Yes we don’t have them here in the Netherlands 🙁 A collegue who went on vacation to the US brought me one… Now I’m addicted but can’t get them anywhere. I might have to make them myself 😉
