There’s something about that chewy peanut butter cookie and chocolate. That’s why I know everyone will love these Peanut Butter Cup Cookies! Then again, I don’t think I have met any combo of peanut butter and chocolate that I didn’t love. These are no different. Soft chewy peanut butter cookie dough in a mini muffin tin, baked for a few minutes then add a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup to have perfection! It is simple yet delicious!
I love using my mini muffin tin for mini brownies, muffins, cupcakes, and cookies. I believe I picked mine up at Walmart, but it is also available on amazon here
