Monster Cookies, with their crisp and chewy peanut butter cookie base, gooey chocolate chips, and crunchy M&M’s are pretty much off the hizook. But these Peanut Butter Cup Monster Cookies aren’t your average Monster Cookies. Nay. These awesome little suckers have a peanut butter cup hidden right inside the cookies. Yep. Da bomb. You can say it. You can totally pull out your slang from the 1990′s, because there’s not a single gosh darned word that has yet been invented this century to describe the sheer radicalness of these incredible cookies. Snaps.
- 1 Peanut Butter Betty Crocker Cookie Mix
- 5 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
- 6-8 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (standard size)
- 1 1/2 cups M&M’s
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the cookie mix, butter, egg, and vanilla until well mixed. Stir in the chocolate chips. Scoop 1/4 cup of cookie dough from the bowl and press it around a Reese’s peanut butter cup. Make sure the dough is sealed completely around the peanut butter cup. Transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment and press M&M’s all over the top of the cookie dough. Repeat this process with all of the dough, then bake in the preheated oven for 12-14 minutes, or until the cookies are set in the center. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before transfering to a wire cooling rack with a metal spatula. Cool and enjoy!
