I asked my husband to hunt the grocery store aisles the day after Halloween. His mission? To find cheap candy that I could make into Christmas cookies and for other holiday treats last year. I probably had a full 55-gallon trash can full of candies. Maybe more. 🙂
I tried Baby Ruth Cookies, Butterfinger Candy Bar Cookies and these delicious Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies. I made them for our annual Christmas Cookie Extravaganza 2019. We baked 5,800+ cookies and finished around the first week in December. It is finally January and I’m just now getting over all that holiday baking! We were exhausted baking that many cookies in about two weeks time.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies turned out to be some of our favorites. The texture was really wonderful. I had to try a few times to get it right. The candies have so much oil from the peanut butter and the chocolate that I had to work to get the consistency correct.
Even so, these cookies we’re a real winner with everyone. They’re also delicious treats for tailgating parties, potlucks or Christmas Cookie Exchanges. Not to mention, being a great way to use up leftover Halloween candy. 🙂
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies are spectacular.
Chocolate and peanut butter flavors simply burst in these cookies.

Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Place two sticks softened butter in a mixing bowl (not three like pictured here). Add eggs, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, vanilla and salt.
Mix with an electric mixer until well blended.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add chopped miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
Stir really well to combine. Mixture will be on the dryer side.
Roll dough into balls and place on cookie sheets that have been sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes or until done. Rotate cookie sheets on racks every six minutes while baking. My cookies took between 18-20 minutes to cook completely.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies are wonderful for tailgating parties and potlucks.
These cookies made it into our annual Christmas Cookie Extravaganza 2019.
Chocolate and peanut butter never tasted so delicious. 🙂
Take a plate of these to your office and watch them disappear!
