Chocolate Reese’s cookie cups are chocolate cookies baked in a mini muffin tin, stuffed with mini Reese’s and topped with peanut butter frosting.
Candy season is here! With Halloween and Christmas within sight, I’ve been brainstorming dessert recipes using candy lying around the house. Enter chocolate Reese’s cookie cups.
The chocolate peanut butter pairing is alive and well in this recipe. Chocolate cookie dough is baked in a mini muffin tin, then stuffed with mini Reese’s cups and topped with peanut butter frosting. And just in case that wasn’t enough, I added a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
So this is any peanut butter chocolate lover’s dream.
These little guys pack a punch. Layers of chocolate and peanut butter flavors and textures all in one little mini cookie cup. They are fun to make too!
Chocolate cookie dough bakes for a bit in the mini muffin tin and as soon as they come out of the oven (the centers will still be rather soft) you press a mini Reese’s cup right into the center.
You have no idea how satisfying that is. It’s like, “Oh hey there, cute little cookie, I’m going to give you an upgrade.” *giant thumb presses in a Reese’s cup*
Now, to take that upgrade to the next level, a nice dollop of peanut butter frosting and chocolate syrup to top it all off. And frosting these Reese’s cookie cups is pretty satisfying too.
As the frosting hits the top, the mini Reese’s has just started to melt from the warmth of the cookie cups and the frosting pushes the melted chocolate aside slightly.
If you look closely in the photo below you can see a bit of the melted Reese’s oozing out from under the frosting.
Yeah, that’s the stuff… oozing chocolate and peanut butter goodness in a cute little cookie cup.
