1990s blog: Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

1990s note: These are absolutely deadly. Make them for someone who loves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!

Chocolate Peanut-Butter-Cup Cookies

  • 1 cup margarine
  • 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 5 2-oz. pkgs peanut butter cups, each cup cut into 8 pieces*
  • 6 oz. chocolate chips (1 cup)

Beat margarine, peanut butter, sugars, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time. Reduce speed to low and add mixed dry ingredients. Stir in peanut-butter-cup pieces and chocolate chips. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes until dry and slightly firm to touch.

Makes about 4 dozen.

*You can miniature peanut butter cups. I used these once, and unwrapped them, and weighed out 10 oz. Then, I cut each one in half.
