Chocolate and peanut butter lovers unite! You are going to LOVE these Reese’s Stuffed Giant Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies! I took my very favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and stuffed a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup inside…you can thank me later.
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?
