Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup CookiesI always like to try new recipes, which is one of the reasons I like Pinterest so much. It’s an endless source of new recipes to test out.

Today’s cookies were inspired by a recipe I pinned was for chocolate raspberry cookies from Paula Dean. I wanted to try them, but I didn’t have the raspberry creme filled chocolate baking pieces that the recipe called for.

I did have mini peanut butter cups. What’s better than chocolate and peanut butter cups? Not much as far as I’ m concerned. Earlier this month, we posted another cookie recipe that combines peanut butter and chocolate, but this is another option that is tasty as well

Who doesn’t like peanut butter cups? Peanut butter cups are my favorite.

To make these cookies, you need butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, flour, cocoa, baking powder, mini peanut butter cups, and white chocolate chips.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Preheat the oven to 350 and lightly grease your cookie sheets. In a mixing bowl cream together softened butter and sugars at medium speed until they are light and fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla, mixing well.

Next, add the dry ingredients and beat until well blended.

Cut the mini peanut butter cups and add them to the cookie batter by stirring gently. You don’t want the pieces to break up too much, so skip the mixer.
