How To Make Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Cups


There are some things that are just meant to go together – macaroni and cheese, spaghetti and meatballs, and of course, peanut butter and chocolate. And that’s precisely why Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups were invented. Now, the only thing better than a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup is when that cup is combined with a chewy chocolate chip cookie.

Although this recipe is clearly perfect for making year-round, it’s also the absolute perfect holiday treat. After all, have you ever met someone who doesn’t like peanut butter cups or chocolate chip cookies? Probably not.

  8. Remove from oven and immediately press a miniature Reese’s into each cookie cup.
  9. Let cool 15-20 minutes in pan.
  10. Remove cookie cups from baking pan (At first the Reese’s miniatures are nice and melty – be sure to eat at least one cup this way!), and serve.
  11. Store leftovers in an airtight container for 3-4 days, or freeze for a convenient treat.
