Chocolate Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

I love cookies.


They are my favorite treats to bake, and tend to get a bit crazy with them. I think for Christmas I made 15 different kinds, and quite literally lost an entire batch.

They a perfectly sized for one ( well, most of the time) and pair so perfectly with a cup of hot chocolate. 😀

What’s better on a winter’s day?

Chocolate Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

Makes about 18 cookies

  • 1/2 c butter, softened
  • 1/2 c creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 c brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 c flour
  • 1/2 baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 c Reese’s pieces candies, crushed
  • about 1/2 cup chocolate spread ( I used this brand, however Nutella would work just as well)
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and line your baking sheets with some parchment.
  2. In a large bowl, cream your butter, sugar and peanut butter together.
  3. Add in your egg and the vanilla and mix a bit more until smooth and combined.
  4. Meanwhile, in another bowl mix your flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add it to the creamed mixture, mixing until combined.
  5. Crush up the Reese’s Pieces either in a food processor, or in a zip bag with a rolling pin. Stir then into the cookie dough until evenly combined.

Now you could stop here, bake them up and you would have a delicious and very dip-able cookie. Or you know, you could stuff them with chocolate.

6.   Take about 1 tbsp of dough and press it flat on the parchment lined pan. Top with 1/2 – 1 tsp of chocolate spread right smack in the middle. With about another Tbsp of dough top the spread and seal the edges, then press the dough lightly with a fork ( you don’t want to squish out the chocolate)

7. Bake for 10-12 minutes, then remove and let cool for a couple minutes on the pan. Make yourself a hot chocolate or pour yourself a tall glass of milk and dunk away.

  3. your cookies look like they have the same texture as the way i like mine. Thick and soft, but i also like mine doughy not sure if you like yours doughy (slightly under baked)

    • I almost always underbake my cookies a little. I use a cookie scoop too and never squish the mounds down so that they don’t spread as much when they bake ad stay nice and thick. 🙂
