With little notice I had to bring a plate of homemade cookies to an event. I went to my favorite recipe for help. It is a miracle they even made it out of my house, I wanted to stay home and eat them by myself.
You will need a mini muffin pan, Reese's Minatures, and ready to bake peanut butter cookie dough.
If your cookie dough makes 24 you are all set to go. If it makes 12 big cookies like the one I bought you need to break apart each cookie so you get 24 pieces of dough. Just place them in the muffin cups. Bake it for about 5 minutes LESS than the directions say. You need the cookies to be gooey when they come out of the oven.
While they are cooking unwrap 24 Reese's cups. They need to be lined up and ready to go because the next step has to be really quick. When they are unwrapped walk away. Trust me, if you stay in the kitchen they will start disappearing. Go check your email, read my blog, etc.
As soon as you pull the cookies out of the oven push a Reese's in each cookie. Since the cookies are still gooey the Reese's will fit in nicely. Let the cookies cool while still in the muffin tin. The cookies will cook a little bit more while they sit. When they are cooled pop them out and try not to eat them all. Enjoy!

  5. Yes, MAY GOD BLESS YOU for making this recipe available to me -- er, us. I will now attempt to make them and then not eat them all myself. In one sitting. In the dark. While slapping my husband's and son's hands away. Seriously.

  18. OMG the kids are going to love 'helping' Grandma make this cookies! I'll have them do a test run this weekend...only because I am dying to taste them...and then make a couple of batches for our Thanksgiving get together. Don't worry, they all understand the word "HOT!" For a chocolate and peanut butter treat they will be especially careful.

  21. I make something very similar, but i haven't used the PB Cup cookies, i just use plain peanut butter cookies. I will have to try your version! I have also done choc chip cookies with rolo's or snickers.

  24. We make these every year for Christmas, with assorted candies. My favorite are with rolo's in the middle! My mom also uses the brownie pre-made batter, and puts the Hugs in the middle. Love them!
