Sinfully delicious chocolate peanut butter cup cookies. A perfect marriage of chewy chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cups!
  • 16 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 c. sugar
  • ½ c. dark brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 c. all flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 16 oz. chocolate peanut butter cups, coarsely chopped
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ยบ.
  2. Melt the butter in the microwave for 60-90 seconds, until JUST melted. Pour into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add both sugars, and beat on medium speed until very smooth.
  3. Add the vanilla and eggs and beat on medium speed again until paler in color and creamy (see video for an example).
  4. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and stir on low speed until the flour just starts to combine with the wet ingredients. Add the chopped peanut butter cups and stir on low for a few seconds until they're evenly distributed through the batter.
  5. Scoop large balls of dough (a medium ice cream scoop is the perfect size!) onto a cookie sheet and bake for 9 minutes. It might be more or less depending on your oven but you want to err on the side of them being underdone. They should be just golden around the outer edges.
  6. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheets for 5-10 minutes then tranfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Freeze any cookies you won't eat in the first day or two to keep them fresh!
