Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies are a soft delicious peanut butter cookies with a Reese’s Mini embedded right in the center. Can you say Scrumptious?? These won’t last long on a party tray. Let me at em!
Kayti loves Candy so it just makes sense she would lobby hard for these delicious candy/cookie treats to make an appearance on the blog. We all adore peanut butter cookies and the Reese’s mini cups embedded in the center???? Oh yeah…can’t say no to them! which is why I rarely make these. She is a bad Foodie influence. But in the best possible way 🙂
These are soft cookies with a satisfyingly firm candy center with just the right amount of intense peanut butter chocolateness. These cookies will hold together as you eat them because the candy is slightly welded into the cookie. My mouth is watering just describing how they taste and feel in your mouth.
I love peanut butter. I eat it straight out of the container. One of my favorite late night snacks is creamy peanut butter in a bowl with chocolate chips. So you can imagine how much I love these cookies. WAY too much!
There is no candy replacement for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Minis in this recipe. They have just the right size, consistency and flavor to take this recipe where we want it to go. There are times when you just go get the candy. This is one of them.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies Recipe:
An easy to make cookie your family will love. Truly yum without much fuss.
- You do need to chill the dough so plan ahead a bit. But we didn’t chill it very long…(about 15 minutes) and one batch I didn’t chill at all and they still worked. This is Not recommended for retaining best cookie shape (They might spread if not properly chilled) but ours remained round and the candy went in without a fuss.
- After baking (watch them so they don’t get overdone), let them cool to slightly warm and then press the candy cups into the middle of the round cookies. This will allow the candy to melt slightly and seat well into the cookies. But not liquify too much. You can still see the ridges on our candy and no telling melted chocolate bulge on the candy cup.
- After the candy cups are in place chill the cookies to set the candy (about 15 minutes in the fridge). Keep them on the baking tray and just slide them into the fridge. You can remove the cookies to a cooling rack if you prefer and let them harden at room temperature. It will just take a LOT longer.
- If you DO try to pick up these cookies before hardening the candy BEWARE. The candy cups look firm but they are not. It’s really EASY to mess up the candy top when they are warm. Once cooled and hardened they travel well and are not delicate.
