These peanut butter cookie cups are so simple to make, and you literally only need 2 ingredients to make them! They’re the perfect bite sized cookie!
One of my favorite candies 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 ways to use them in desserts, like our Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake, Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats, Candy Bar Pie, or of course these delicious peanut butter cookie cups.
These cookies are soft, delicious, and have the perfect sweetness. Plus who doesn’t like biting into a soft peanut butter cup in the middle of a cookie?
These peanut butter cookie cups are so simple to make, with only 2 ingredients needed. You just need Reese’s Miniature Cups, and sugar cookie dough. If you’re a little more ambitious you can use your own sugar cookie dough, but otherwise just grab a package of your favorite refrigerated cookie dough and you’re set. You can also use store bought or homemade peanut butter dough, to make the cookie cups extra peanut buttery – and it makes them so yummy too!
How to make Peanut Butter Cookie Cups?
You’ll break your store bought dough into squares, and stick each square in a prepared mini muffin pan. Bake them in the oven for about 13 to 14 minutes, and while the cookie cups are baking unwrap your peanut butter cups. You’ll need 24 Reese’s for 1 package of sugar cookie dough. So you’ll have a few extra in your bag that you can snack on while you’re unwrapping them 😉
Then when your cookie cups come out, stick a peanut butter cup into the middle of each cookie, and let them sit for a couple minutes. Once the dough has cooled down for about 10 minutes, 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 Peanut Butter Cookie Cups.
They’re the perfect little snack-able cookie. They’re so good for a party, an after school treat (if kids are going back to school, or doing school at home 😉 ) Or your kids might even be able to help you make them, they really are that easy.
These peanut butter cookie cups are the perfect treat for peanut butter and chocolate lovers. They’re so easy, that they’re failproof and you’ll probably eat them all up even quicker than you made them!
