Peanut Butter Explosion Cookies

Thanks to for this amazing recipe! These cookies are sooooo rich and good.

Peanut Butter Explosion Cookies

1 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. peanut butter
3/4 c. white sugar
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 c. cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips
1 c. peanut butter chips
1 package mini Reese’s peanut butter cups, frozen and cut into halves (freezing is key!)
1 c. Reese’s Pieces

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl (I used my KitchenAid mixer), cream together the butter, peanut butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, and baking soda; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Mix in the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and Reese’s Pieces.

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Press a peanut butter cup half into the center of each ball of dough. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. I had to bake for 12 minutes to get mine done. ***Let cool for 1 or 2 minutes on sheet before removing, or they will fall apart.***
