Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

I have a slight obsession with Reese’s peanut butter cups, it is clearly well known by my family and friends from the sheer volume of Reese’s related treats I get at Christmas and birthday times! I’ve been wanting to make a cookie recipe that involves one of my favourite treats, so I’ve created these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies! They contain not only chopped up peanut butter cups, but also peanut butter for extra nutty flavour. I’ve dipped them in chocolate then added chopped up Reese’s Pieces, or you could also use chopped up peanuts!

Jump straight to the recipe!

I started by mixing the butter, peanut butter and golden caster sugar together.

Then I added the egg and mixed it in.

Next I mixed in the plain flour and baking powder, then I folded in the chopped up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

 

I rolled the batter into balls and placed onto lined baking trays, then I baked the cookies for 14 minutes until they were golden brown.

To decorate the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies I dipped them in melted milk chocolate and then sprinkled them with crushed up Reese’s Pieces.
