Day 2 of the Cookie Marathon and I’m baking cookies that remind me of one of my favorite candies – the beloved Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Are you with me? I mean you can’t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter, right?!

The recipe for these very popular cookies was given to me by a close friend when she made them for one of my holiday cookie parties. Everyone raved about them at the party and I even managed to save some for the kids the next day and they couldn’t get enough of them.

The recipe starts out with one of the best soft and chewy peanut butter cookies you’ve ever tasted and then it’s taken up a notch by inserting that sweet chocolaty, peanutty mini peanut butter cup in the center. Are you drooling yet? I managed to wait about 5 seconds before I had to scarf one down. Oh, I’m in peanut butter and chocolate heaven!

The big plus is these are so easy to make and great fun to make with kids. They love rolling the dough into balls and then pushing the candy into the center of the hot cookie. There never seemed to be as many cookies as I thought there were when the kids were done. Ahem, something tells me some little fingers were busy while my back was turned.
