It has been far too long since I shared a Reese’s recipe.  Far, faaar too long. It’s not as if I’m not eating and baking with Reese’s. No. I keep our pantry fully stocked: Reese’s Pieces, Minis, Miniatures, Cups, and of course, Reese’s PB Baking Chips. Yes please!

Last week my husband had another BBQ at his work. Yes, I know. These people like to party. And yes, here in Sacramento we are in the 80s. Spring is a relatively short period of time here in Sacramento so we take full advantage of the warm days and cool nights.  Before we know it, temps will have reached the 100s and we won’t want to go outside. Like ever.

Sooo, anyhoo, Chris asked for cookies. Chocolate chip cookies. Using our favorite recipe naturally.  I was happy to oblige, with one teensy little adjustment.  I really, really wanted to stuff them. And if you’re going to stuff a cookie, I say go big or go home.

These giant, chewy chocolate chip cookies have been stuffed with snack size Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and let me tell you folks, I have a new favorite cookie.

Straight out of the oven, these cookies are pure heaven. Ooey, gooey, and perfectly crisp around the edges.  Biting into the cookie is pure bliss…and then…then, you hit the center.

I can’t think of a better surprise than a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Can you?

  5. Oh, yum! These look like cookie heaven! I’m drooling over your photos. Pinned!

  6. These look so great. Quick question. I’ve made your family favorite recipe several times and my fam really enjoys them. I noticed you have cornstarch in this recipe…have you started adding it to your base too? Thanks!

    • I have Bryn. It’s not a must-have but it does result in a more tender cookie. I make the Giant Brown Butter Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies with 1/2 tsp and decided to up it to 1 tsp for this recipe and it worked out wonderfully. Thank you!

  7. Trish, these are a chocolate-peanut butter lover’s dream! I can hardly believe you were able to pack a Reese’s peanut butter cup into a cookie, but it looks like a wild success. :) I didn’t realize that you were in Sacramento — it’s way too hot there for me. :)

  10. My new favorite cookie, Trish! I swear…I can taste these in my mind already and cannot wait to bake them! Cannot believe that you managed to wrap all that cookie dough around those large peanut butter cups. Where there is a will, there is a way! Thanks for sharing. Pinning (of course)!

  13. Ohmygosh, Sacramento weather is SO strange! From 80° to 60° and raining… I’m not exactly happy about this. I want spring to come and stay for a little while! And these cookies — absolutely incredible. With how many kinds of Reese’s you stock in your pantry, can I move in with you?? ;)

  14. These look awesome! I am sure my sons will love them – husband, too.

  15. Not today, you’re not (in the 80s, in Sacramento.) *sigh* Which makes it a great weekend to stay in and try this recipe. The group of 9-year old boys that has invaded my house should love it.

  16. These cookies just stopped me in my tracks when I first saw them, they look amazing! I had to share with all my friends on Facebook!

  19. yummy addition to choc chip cookies!
    dina recently posted..Weekend Whets 5/16

  20. These sound amazing! Can you please tell me about how many cookies this makes, since the pb cups are pretty large…? Thanks!

  21. Deirdre Davis says:

    Hi, I was just looking over your variety of chocolate chip cookie recipes and noticed one you add no cornstarch, one has 1/2 tsp and one has 1 tsp all with the same size recipe. What is the reason for this?

    • Yep. So the deal is that I play with recipes from time to time. The corn starch isn’t “required” but helps to make the cookie more tender. I personally like the cookies with more corn starch but it would be acceptable to leave it out if you don’t have it.

  22. So I am weird and want to make this without chocolate chips…would it still be delicious?

  23. I made these today, but used Reese’s miniature cups instead. It was so delicious! Fabulous recipe, thank you for sharing!

  24. These were great! Although I used mini Reese’s cups to make average sized cookies, the cookies still came out delicious, and it made a lot more than i was expecting!

  25. Oh yummmmm! I’m including these in a cookie round-up on Lifehack if that’s okay! :)
