These Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cup Cookies are loaded with your favorite candy. Chocolate and peanut butter heaven!
Something about the peanut butter and chocolate combination that I LOVE! Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite and this time I chopped up chocolate peanut butter cups and added them into the mix! Cookies may be one of my favorite dessert recipes, I've posted several cookie recipes on the blog! Something about warm cooking is so comforting. My mom made cookies a lot growing up. We used to do chocolate chip cookies with walnuts (she loves nuts in cookies) and my dad would make homemade lemonade. Isn't it funny those little things you remember growing up? Most people made milk with cookies but not us, my Dad's lemonade with fresh cookies on family game night was the best. I hope I can build fun memories like that for my kids. Just a little moment that they remember and look back on and smile. So this week for a family fun night we watched a movie and ate these Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cup Cookie.
How to make Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cup Cookie:
Start with softened butter, not melted but room temperature. Use a stand mixer to cream it together with peanut butter and sugar until well combined. Add in eggs 1 at a time then the vanilla extract. Beat until mixed in. In a separate bowl, you need to whisk up the dry ingridents. Whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and dry pudding mix. Add to wet ingredients slowly and mix until well combined. Now for the good stuff Fold in 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 cup halved chocolate peanut butter cups. I then topped my cookies with reamaining chocolate chips and halved chocolate peanut butter cups. This is mostly for looks, I love seeing what is inside my cookie! Bake for about 10 minutes then remove from oven and allow your cookies to cool on the baking sheet for several minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
