double chocolate peanut butter cup cookies

 

I can’t tell you how decadent and amazing these cookies are!  Chocolate and peanut butter are just meant to be!

I personally am not a cookie lover.  I can usually resist cookies… usually.  Unless they are these cookies.  If they are these cookies I can’t resist them. Oh, and I can’t just have one, ever.  Nope, I have to have 4… in a row.  That’s the kind of cookies these are.

I used Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for these.. not the miniature ones (which are a little bigger).  The ones I used come with no wrapper or foil.  You can get them on Amazon or at the grocery store!

Oh, any by the way.. if you love Peanut Butter Cups, make sure you check out my recipe to make your own Peanut Butter Cups … it’s awesome!
