Reeses Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies | Recipe

You may of seen my recent baking post on these super soft, chewy white chocolate chip cookies that tasted almost just like Millie's. I really wanted to try them again but this time incorporating cocoa powder, chocolate and peanut butter - just a few of my favourite things! I used the same method and recipe for these ones except used a little less flour to make room for the cocoa powder.

Again with these cookies it was a bit of trial and error to find the perfect bake, as I found they didn't rise as much as the others did. I also had to shape these before putting in the oven to the size I wanted, rather than rolling the cookie dough into balls. The outcome was so tasty though, super soft and chocolatey, almost brownie-like with chunks of Reeses peanut butter cups throughout. They definitely aren't for the faint hearted!

Here's how to make some of your own:


170g Unsalted butter
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
100g Caster Sugar
200g Soft Brown Sugar
1 medium egg
1 medium egg yolk
200g Plain Flour
50g Cocoa Powder
100g Crunchy peanut butter
1 tsp Baking Powder
half tsp Salt
200g Reeses Peanut Butter Cups


1. Cube butter and melt in the microwave for 1-2 minutes and allow to cool.

2. Mix both the caster and the brown sugar together in a large mixing bowl, adding in the vanilla extract and butter once cooled.

3. Add the egg and egg yolk and whisk for about 5 minutes until mixture has lightened in colour.

4. Add in flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and give it a further mix - it should be quite hard to mix by this point.

5. Slightly melt the peanut butter in the microwave and add to the mix.

6.  Put the mixture in the fridge for about 10 minutes to firm.

7.  Preheat oven to 160 (fan) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

8. Create 6 cookies to the shape you want them (even use a cookie cutter) and evenly space out on the baking tray. Add some extra peanut butter cups on top to decorate!

9. Cook for about 10 minutes - they should still feel soft to touch when you take them out. Allow to cool and set for a couple of minutes on the tray then transfer to a wire rack.

10.  Add another batch to the oven and make as many as you wish!
