I was recently hired at a college, which could mean two things, I’ll have less time to blog, which I’m trying to avoid and stay on a schedule, but it also means I have A LOT more people to bake for with different taste buds and wants. I see this as a positive piece for my readers! Anyways, I have 5 undergrads that I supervise whom I just met and found out one loves peanut butter, kid after my own heart, and it was recently his birthday so I saw this Pinterest recipe and knew it needed to happen!

If a recipe pops out at me on Pinterest I will try and recreate it and I finally found one I really wanted to share! I have yet to do a lot of peanut butter recipes, but have a ton stored up in my head that I’m slowly sharing, but you will start to realize I love peanut butter!! The following recipe was found on Pinterest, however, because there was not an added link with a full recipe, I have not linked the page.

1 1/4 Cup Flour
1/2 Tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 Tsp. Salt
1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter, softened
1/2 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Egg
3/4 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1Tsp. Vanilla Extract
Reese’s Miniature Peanut Butter Cups, unwrapped

1 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips


Start by preheating the oven to 350 Degree. Then mix all the ingredients listed minus the peanut butter cups.

Once the ingredients are mixed and have made a soft dough grab what would make a 1inch. Then make an indent with your thumb and place a peanut butter cup in the dough. Then wrap the dough around the peanut butter cup and form a ball.

Once you have fully covered the peanut butter cup, place the ball on an ur greased cookie sheet. After the tray is full place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes until the sides are golden. With these ingredients listed I made about 30 cookies.

While your last batch is baking start to melt the chocolate chips. I used a microwave and 30 second increments. Every 30 seconds take the chocolate out and stir. Once the drizzle is fully melted and the cookies are cool, grad a spoon and let the chocolate drip off the spoon while you move it back and forth over the cookie.

Grad a glass of milk and enjoy! I promise all your friends and family will be very surprised by the goodie inside and just how delicious these cookies are in general! Enjoy!
