Reeses Peanut Butter Cup Cookies….Literally 2 Ingredients!


Wait until you get a load of my Reeses PB Cup cookies, they are quite comical actually….only 2 ingredients….PB Cups and an egg. No kidding, this was a recipe idea I just had to try and had NO idea if it was even going to turn out.

I was so anxious waiting for these to cool to see if they really were….well, a good cookie. I will tell you, they absolutely did not disappoint. They are thin, crispy around the edges and chewy in the center. Perfect for stacking and perfect with a tall glass of milk πŸ™‚

Hope you enjoy this funny little cookie recipe.

I bought three packages of these snack size Reeses Cups. A total of 24 individual cups. I’ve seen them at Target and Walmart, usually on sale for about $1 per package.

Glorious PB Cups!

Unwrap each little cup and try not to eat one in the process.

Break out your food processors folks! Add PB Cups to your processor and mix until smooth. Add your egg, and mix again until smooth.

You’ll get a dough that looks like this πŸ™‚

Grab your favorite cookie scoop and place them onto your baking sheet.

Press each cookie to about 1/2 inch in thickness and sprinkle with a touch of sea salt if you are crazy like me.

Let these bad boys cool completely and you’ll get these gorgeous stackers!

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unwrap all Reeses cups and place into a food processor. Pulse until smooth and combined. Add an egg and pulse until combined. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet. With the heel of your hand, press each cookie down to about 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until cooked through and edges start to crisp. Let cool for 15 minutes on baking sheet before removing to cooling rack.

  4. 4

    Ok, I need to try these immediately. How is the texture of the cookie?

  5. 5

    I love this idea! Especially good after Trick or treating and I don’t know what to do with all the peanut butter cups!

  6. 6

    What what? Only TWO ingredients!? And one of them is pb cups?! GENIUS. We cannot wait to try these.

    Matt says:

    ahh this looks amazing! I live in the UK and they don’t have the mini cups, just the normal size ones. How many normal ones do you think I’d need?

    Liz says:

    Kara says:

    The trick to this recipe will be making sure I don’t eat all the Reese’s before the make it into the food processor! I can’t wait to try this!

  17. 17

    What a fabulous idea!!

    Is it wrong that I always have a bag of Reeses Cups laying around? They are pretty much a staple in my house.

    Grocery List: Eggs, milk, Reeses Cups

    I know, so weird, right? But then a recipe like this comes along and totally justifies it!!

    EatLiveRun says:

    No idea how you came up with them, but they look fabulous and I’ll definitely be trying these soon!

  20. 20

    Great idea!
    Serious question…. Do you make a full batch of whatever recipe you are experimenting with?
    And what do you do with all the left over?
    I hate throwing stuff away…. My friends and coworkers are pretty much tired of me plumping them up πŸ™

      Jenny says:

      Depends what I am experimenting with Melissa. I give LOTS of my stuff away since I cook and bake daily πŸ™‚ Neighbors, friends, school…..pretty much everyone I see, lol! I, however have no complaints from them, your co-workers and friends are tired of the treats?! What?! Lol!

    Sam says:

    I don’t have a food processor..can I just use a hand mixer?

    • 21.1
      Jenny says:

      Yes, a hand mixer should work fine, maybe crush up the PB cups before starting the mixer though πŸ™‚

      • 21.1.1
        jen says:

        i used a hand mixer…just a few minutes ago and i ended up throwing the bowl (plastic of course πŸ™‚ in the microwave to soften the pb cups up. I didnt see the comments about breaking them up! 1st pan is in the oven and hoping they turn out!!

  22. 22

    These are so simple but look and sound amazing! I am anxious to try these out myself!

  23. 23
  24. 24
