Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
I have always been a bake-it-from scratch kind of girl. Until I had three kids, and then I had to get lax on my from-scratch snobbiness and face reality. With three little whirlwinds in the household, scratch-baking just isn’t gonna happen. I don’t want to cheat my kids of the joy of cookie baking (one of my fondest childhood memories), so I picked up a few Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie mixes to make with them. There are dozens of ways to hack the mix and make just about any kind of cookie imaginable. Of course, I had to combine my love of candy with the mix to see what happened.

I unwrapped some Reese’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures and baked cookie dough around them to create an innocent-looking sugar cookie with a hidden treasure inside. If prepared correctly, the peanut butter cup stays concealed in the cookie until you bite into it, which makes for an awesome surprise. Personally, I think plain sugar cookies are kinda boring, so adding a peanut butter cup to the cookie definitely helps jazz them up. Peanut butter cups make everything taste better!

You will need:

  • Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix + ingredients called for on package
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures (Dark or Regular)
  • The usual baking suspects: cookie sheet, bowl, spatula, etc.


Prepare cookie dough according to package instructions. Unwrap peanut butter cups. Cover peanut butter cups with about a tablespoon of dough, being sure to cover the whole candy completely and seal up edges. Place on cookie sheets and bake according to package directions.


If you don’t want to buy the mix, you can use this technique with store-bought cookie dough (the kind that comes in tubes or tubs), or with a scratch recipe. You want to choose a recipe that makes a more firm cookie (as opposed to a more runny cookie), to make sure the candy stays inside the dough during the baking process instead of leaking out into an icky sticky mess. If you’re not a fan of peanut butter cups, you can use just about any miniature chocolate candy (such as Snickers or Rolo) instead.

The ending to this story is that the cookie mix tasted almost as good as a scratch recipe (the from-scratch snob was surprised!), and happy childhood memories were made. Hmm, maybe the memories were even sweeter because we added some candy to them.
