A classic cookie with a modern twist! Chocolate Chip Cookies Stuffed with Reeses Peanut Butter Cups

Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Stuffed cookies are all the rage. I’ve seen them all over the blogosphere and I held off for as long as I could before trying them myself {which wasn’t long ; )} I took my family’s chocolate chip recipe and went with a classic to stuff with. Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. Chocolate and Peanut Butter are an obvious combination and these didn’t disappoint.

These make 12 very LARGE cookies. I ended up halving these cookies and half was plenty with a nice big glass of milk. I already have SEVERAL ideas for stuffing the next bunch with!

Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies Stuffed w/Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
What you’ll need: {makes 12 LARGE cookies}
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 sticks real unsalted butter softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1.5 teaspoons PURE vanilla extract
2 large eggs room temperature
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chip morsels
12 Reeses Peanut Butter Cups – wrappers removed

What to do:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees

2. Add flour, baking soda and salt into a bowl. Mix together with whisk. Set aside.

3. In your mixer beat butter until creamy and fluffy. Add sugar, vanilla extract. Mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, mix well. Gradually add flour mixture. Mix well. Fold in chocolate chips with a spatula.

4. Place your silpat (or silicone) mat onto a rimmed cookie sheet. Spoon your cookie dough onto Reeses Peanut Butter Cup. Place another spoonful underneath peanut butter cup. Place enough cookie dough around to seal. Place onto silpat. Continue assembling. You will need to leave a few inches of space between each cookie to allow for spreading. I baked two cookie sheets with 6 cookies per sheet.
