Reese’s Surprise Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies

Mini Reese Cup Peanut Butter Chip Cookie
    Last week I posted recipes for white chocolate Oreo surprise cookies and Triple White Chocolate Bliss cookies. What both of these recipes have in common are a hidden surprise in the center of the cookie. To continue this trend, I decided to add two miniature Reese cups to butterscotch flavored cookie dough that had been dotted with peanut butter chips. As the cookies baked, the Reese cups melted, leaving a soft chocolate and peanut butter layer just below the center of the cookie.
Cookie Dough + Reese’s Minis Peanut Butter Cups
The cookie dough is full of peanut butter chips.
After flattening the cookie dough in your hand,
place two Reese’s cups to the side.
Fold the dough over to cover the cups.
Roll the cookie dough around the cups and continue.
Nice and warm from the oven
