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!

  16. trish

    OMG way too easy. I’m so bummed I’m allergic to peanuts! Any suggestions for a candy substitute?

      1. Desaree

        If you have a health food store near by you should be able to get almond butter cups, although they cost more they might be a good substitute….Good luck!

    These cookies look amazing except I’m afraid if I try to make them, I’m going to wind up eating all of the reeses!

  18. marla {family fresh cooking}

    Jenny, this recipe is sooooo fun!! I bet it kept you up all night and had you busting out of bed to make these cookies. The ultimate stackers for sure!

  19. Amy's Cooking Adventures
