This is a LOADED CHOCOLATE /PEANUT
BUTTER CUP COOKIE....Loaded with Reese's
Pieces, Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups,
Chocolate Chips, Peanut Butter & a Chocolate
dough...Wow that's chocolaty.......
These would be great for a special occasion.
I found these on a number of blogs, pretty much

Kitchen Cafe ....(I didn't put the 1 cup of peanut
butter chips that was in the original recipe & you
may want to do that)....
1 Cup Butter, (softened)
3/4 C. Peanut Butter (creamy or crunchy)
(I used crunchy)
3/4 C. Sugar
3/4 C. packed Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 1/3 C. Flour
1/3 C. Cocoa Powder (I think I would use not
as much..... maybe 1/4 -1/2 Cup)..you decide
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips
1 Bag Reese's Pieces
~Note: Cut the Peanut Butter Cups in half
(gently) and put in refrigerator or freezer
til ready to use. Original Recipe said to
freeze first.......(but 1 blogger stated she had
problems cutting them after they were
frozen)....we don't want problems like that...

In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream together
softened butter, peanut butter, white sugar, &

time, then stir in vanilla. Combine flour, cocoa,

I used a Cookie Scoop to have each cookie round &

sheet liner...(they are the BEST non-stick liners!!!)
These are 2 of my Favorite Kitchen Items......
Push one Peanut Butter Cup half into the center of
each ball of dough. Bake for 8 to 10 min. (My oven
they were done at 9 min. (You don't want them to
fall apart so make sure you let them cool completely
before lifting them off the cookie sheet).....
