Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy

A couple weeks ago my family wanted me to make something different than chocolate chip cookies. They had requirements though. They wanted cookies and they wanted them to be as good as my chocolate chip cookies but they wanted something different. Yep, that is what they said.

Ummm…okay. No pressure or anything.

Since expectations were high, I figured I couldn’t go wrong with peanut butter chocolate cookies. Totally different but still a cookie AND still delicious. Plus, with the added ingredient of Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups, how could I go wrong?

I was right. These were a home run with the family! The only thing I warn is that you don’t give one to the neighborhood boy who is allergic to peanut butter but you don’t know and he doesn’t tell you. Ummmm…yeah. I can just imagine that would be bad. Real bad.
