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 🙂

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 🙂

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!

    No freaking way!! These look amazing! I can’t believe it, this is the most inventive recipe I’ve ever seen!

  4. Natalie @ Will Jog For Food

    You have to be freakin kidding me! This has to be the best recipe ever! 2 ingredients cookies?? WOW WOW WOW

  5. jen @ the baked life

    How is this even possible with 2 ingredients? I’m so curious, they look so delicious. These are a must try. Thanks 🙂 You’re always so inventive.

  6. Lori @ RecipeGirl

    I can’t even believe you even thought to put this together. But let’s just go ahead and stuff a PB cup in between two of those bad boys and bake that up too!

    1. Jenny

      It’s a good thing we are not neighbors Lori, we’d be in big trouble with all of our baking! Lol!

  7. Shana

    Super excited to try these Jenny since I have Celiac and cannot eat gluten (wheat) these will be a go to cookie for me! Thanks so much. I use a lot of your recipes and convert them to gluten free for me 🙂

  8. Heather at Kitchen Concoctions

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

    1. Jenny

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

      1. jen

        i used a hand mixer…just a few minutes ago and i ended up throwing the bowl (plastic of course 🙂 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!!

  9. Melissa Mack

    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 🙁

    1. Jenny

      Depends what I am experimenting with Melissa. I give LOTS of my stuff away since I cook and bake daily 🙂 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!

  10. EatLiveRun

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

  11. Cookbook Queen

    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!!

  12. Kara

    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!

  13. Kristen@PrettySweet

    Holy Toledo! I can’t imagine that this works, but there’s the proof. Gotta try it!

  14. brandi@BranAppetit

    Woah – I would never think to make cookies with just pb cups and an egg! they look perfect 🙂

  15. Liz

    OMG! Doesn’t get any easier than that. Very impressive, in the simplest & most unique way possible 🙂

  16. Matt

    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?

    1. Jenny

      Hi Matt,
      The normal size isn’t too much bigger than these, I would go with 18, so 9 packs 🙂 Let me know how it goes!!

  17. The Blue-Eyed Bakers

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

  18. Jersey Girl Cooks

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

    1. Carolyn

      I never had that difficulty of not knowing what to do with the peanut butter cups! But I do love the idea, too!
