  • 3/4 cup sticks butter, softened (1.5 sticks)
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 60 mini Reeses Peanut Butter cups (about 5 dozen)


  1. In a large bowl, cream together butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and white sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add in vanilla and eggs and continue to mix for 10 seconds.
  2. Add baking soda and mix on low speed for 10 seconds. Add flour and continue to mix until all flour is incorporated.
  3. Scoop & roll dough into 1 tablespoon sized balls and place each in a greased, mini muffin tin.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Remove from oven, and immediately press one mini Reeses peanut butter cup into the center of each cookie. 

  5. After inserting the Reeses, allow the cookies to cool on a cooling rack (while still in the muffin pan) for about 20 minutes. At this point, your chocolate will likely still be melted so you should then place the entire pan in the fridge for about 15 minutes or until the chocolate sets. Once the chocolate is hardened, use a spoon to gently "scoop" out the cookies. This is where spraying the muffin tin before baking is crucial, otherwise your cookies will stick to the pan!

  6. If not serving immediately, store in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for long-term storing.
