Make the Most Delicious Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies with Printable!!

Hi Friends! Enjoy these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies!

My name is Desirée and I blog over at The 36th Avenue.

The 36th AVENUE

I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to visit with Jen and you wonderful people every month.

What a great day… and what a great place to be!

I love it here!

Today I am sharing with you some deliciousness:

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Let’s start with the recipe:

1 Cup { 2 sticks } butter, softened.

3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar

3/4 Cup Packed Brown Sugar

1 Tb. Vanilla Extract

{ Yes I said 1 tablespoon}

2 Eggs

2 1/4 Cups Flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 Box { 3.4 oz } Vanilla Instant Pudding.

1 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips

20 to 25 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups

Let’s get ready !

We are going to start with the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

After you peel them cut them into fourths.

Don’t chopped them… You don’t want them to fall apart!

More peanut butter cups you put… more your cookies will taste like peanut butter.

Sorry if you are on a diet… Oh my! Here is your temptation.

As soon as you are done cutting put your Peanut Butter Cups in the freezer and leave them there while you make the rest of the cookies.

This will make them firm and they won’t melt away when you add them into your dough.

Let’s make the cookies!

Preheat your oven at 375ºF.

1. Beat soft butter, brown and white sugar and vanilla in a large bowl.

2. Add the eggs, beat well until creamy.

3. Then add the rest of your dry ingredients including the instant pudding.

{ This is the time when my kids say… Can we have some? }

Next add and stir in the chocolate chips.

And now it is time to take out those delicious chunks of peanut butter cups and add them to the batter.

Stir it gently with a wooden spoon.

Don’t over do it you want to see and bite into those small chunks later.

Let’s Bake!

Drop the batter by teaspoons onto a cookie sheet.

I bake mine for 8 minutes. The first batch always takes like an extra minute.


Cookies will get harder as they cool down.

When they are baked remove them from the cookie sheet to a wire rack.

They smell so good!

We made these cookies last week for our children’s school principal.

We adore him!

We put them inside of a glass jar and I placed a coffee filter between the lid and the ring that goes around it.

Then I closed it and there was the cute ruffle!

Because it was a special occasion we even added some extra Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in a smaller jar and I used a cupcake liner to decorate the lid.

I punched out some hearts and I made this free printable for the tag.

I made them in a bunch of colors.

This will make a perfect gift for any peanut butter lover!

Think about Teacher’s appreciation gifts, neighbors, Mothers Day… you name it.

Easy, tasty, affordable and cute!

That’s what I call delicious!

Jen I love you to pieces my friend.

Thank you so much for having me another month while sharing this little treat with your EXTRAORDINARY readers.
