One of our favorite candies around here is REESE’S Peanut Butter Cups. There is nothing better than that delicious combination of chocolate and peanut butter. And there are so many great recipes that use REESE’S Peanut Butter Cups in them too – like these amazing REESE’S Peanut Butter Cookie Cups.
These peanut butter cookie cups are so simple to make with only 2 ingredients needed – REESE’S Miniatures and sugar cookie dough. If you’re a little more ambitious you can definitely make your own sugar cookie dough, but other wise just heat to Walmart and grab a bag of Reese’s Miniatures and a package of refridgerated cookie dough and you’re set. You can also use peanut butter dough (I used the refrigerated for those too) and they’re extra peanut buttery and SO good!
Then you’ll break your dough into the squares and stick each square in a prepared mini muffin pan. Bake in your oven for about 13 minutes and while the cookie cups are baking unwrap your REESE’S Miniatures. You’ll need 24 of them for 1 package of sugar cookie dough and 1 mini muffin pan, so you’ll have a few extra in your bag that you can snack on while you’re unwrapping them.
Then when your cookies come out, stick a REESE’S Miniature into the middle of each cookie cup and let them sit for a couple minutes.
Once the dough is cooled down a little you can twist the cookie cups carefully out of the pan, then allow them to cool the rest of the way on your cooling rack until the chocolate has re solidified.
Then you’re ready to snack on these delicious REESE’S Peanut Butter Cookie Cups. They’re the perfect little snack-able cookie, and are great for watching your favorite college team play basketball, or just watching the big tournament!
