It doesn’t get better than Reese’s candy tucked inside warm peanut butter cup cookies! This recipe for Peanut Butter Cup Surprise Cookies is super easy and loaded with chocolate.
Hey everyone. It’s hard to believe tonight is already here. I leave for NY tomorrow morning. I’ve been dying to go to NY for years and I finally get my chance. I’ll be sure to post pictures of some adventures my sister and I get into. There is a huge storm brewing up here, so I’m going to make this snappy before my internet goes out.
Since I’m off to have some fun this weekend, I thought it would be fitting to post something that has fun written all over them. These cookie cups will not disappoint. They are so EASY and done in no time at all. The peanut butter cookie dough consists of a whopping 3 ingredients. Do try them and let the kids help, it’s a breeze of a recipe! Does it get any better than Reeses Peanut Butter Cups tucked inside warm peanut butter cookie dough? I think not!
Have a great weekend everyone, I’ll see you next week for some NY pics! I can hardly wait to get my hands on one of those Levain cookies, woo hoo!

I stumbled across your blog site and keep finding myself coming back to check it out-all of your recipes look amazing-especially your desserts!
These are rich, but oh so yummy!! You are amazing Jenny! (BTW – I am Tiffany Phelps’ sister in law). I love all of your recipes! -Lindsey
I’m a bit late, obviously since it’s November. But I just had a friend – I think a relative to the Fletcher in the last comment that gave me these. I LOVE THEM. They are so good. I am going to make them over and over and over.
I’ve made these twice now. EXCELLENT reviews! Everyone loves them! I have one question for you–your recipe says this makes 12 mini muffin size cups, right? I can’t imagine making it into 12…I make 24, the # of wells on my pan. Do I have something wrong? Just wanted to make sure. Love your blog and all the recipes!!!

Wow looks awesome.
Made these today. They are GREAT! Please spray the muffins tins with cooking spray! I tried some without and some with and they definitely need the spray. Really fun. I switched up a few things, like what is inside and the candy on top. I’ll be trying to get it blogged soon and give you major props for a fun, yummy treat!

Total yumminess! Gonna have to try these. I love the cut open one and it’s slightly underdone look.
Have a super time in NY. I just went for the first time in April and LOVED it–also really liked the Levain cookie. Ya gotta go to Jacques Torres and try his, too. Two totally different kinds of ccc’s but both great!
I’m going back to NY in Nov. and can’t wait!
Be safe and have a blast!
These look so good. Checkout my blog I gave you an AWARD!
Those are just adorable! I would eat way too many of them in one sitting.
Have a blast in NYC. Yes, go to the Levain Bakery…I loved it there. They are expensive, but you’ll see how easy it is to recreate those infamous CC cookies at home.
Make sure to go to a Papaya King; there are a bunch of them around NYC. You’ll love it there, ask any New Yorker.
