Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookies

Is everyone ready for the big game this weekend? I’m still putting the finishing touches on my Super Bowl menu, but I know for sure that we will have plenty of chicken wings, barbecue meatballs, and chips & dip to munch on while we watch the game.

Oh yes, and to satisfy our sweet tooth’s, I made a batch of super-sized Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookies. This is a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe, but I folded a large amount of mini peanut butter cups into the dough, in addition to semi-sweet chocolate chips.

The cookies are big, soft, chewy, and because they’re so chock-full of peanut butter cups and chocolate chips, we’re guaranteed to get a gooey nugget of sweetness in every bite.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and for you football fans out there – have fun watching the game!


Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 1/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups Reese’s Minis Peanut Butter Cups

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in a large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Fold in chocolate chips and peanut butter cups.

Drop by large cookie scoopfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, or until golden brown.

Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes approximately 40 big cookies.
