Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are a chocolate twist on my Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies. They are soft and chewy chocolate peanut butter cookies packed with Reese’s Pieces, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups regulars and miniatures, and mini chocolate chips, which is totally making my mouth water just telling you about and thinking about. 🤤
I love Reese's everything! 😍
As if the peanut butter and chocolate of Reese's candy isn't enough (it isn't), and the 1 and ¼ cups creamy peanut butter in the cookie isn't enough (it isn't), these delicious morsels also have ⅓ cup of cocoa powder AND a ½ cup of mini chocolate chips, which makes them an even more drool-worthy, and the ultimate indulgence!
I could spend all day telling you how FABULOUS these heavenly cookies taste and how my taste-testers LOVED them and wanted more, but let's change gears and talk about the making of these bad boys instead.
These cookies require a little prep, nothing crazy, but all those Reese's aren't going to chop themselves. Thankfully, they aren't difficult though, the most difficult aspect of making these cookies is getting the peanut butter out of the measuring cup, so not too bad. 😉 Plus, as a lovely bonus, they do not require refrigerating the dough, so you get to eat them faster.
These are all excellent selling points in my book because I am not a fan of waiting, refrigerating the dough, or sifting flour, which you also do not have to do with this recipe. I am also a HUGE fan of getting to eat these cookies as fast as humanly possible. They are THAT good!!
Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are the perfect marriage of peanut butter and chocolate; a drool-worthy indulgence you’re going to want to make and shovel into your face!! 😝🍫🥜
