  • 1 pouch Betty Crocker™ peanut butter cookie mix
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips (9 oz)
  • 6 to 8 regular-size chocolate-covered peanut butter cup candies, unwrapped
  • 1 1/2 Reese's peanut butter cups


  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line large cookie sheet with parchment paper. In large bowl, stir together cookie mix, butter, vanilla and egg until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • 2
    For each cookie, press 1/4 cup dough around 1 peanut butter cup candy (make sure dough is sealed completely around candy); place on cookie sheet. Press chocolate candies all over top of each.
  • 3
    Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until set in center. Cool on cookie sheet 1 to 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely.

  • When pressing the chocolate candies on top of the cookie dough, be generous! Even if it seems like you’ve put a ton of candies on top of the dough, the cookies will spread when they cook, so put more than you think you’ll need for great-looking cookies.
  • These cookies bake BIG! Try cutting the cooled cookies into four “pizza”-shaped pieces for easy-to-eat, kid-friendly portions.
