Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies

Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Cookie #recipe by bunsinmyoven.com | These soft and chewy cookies are full of candy and chocolate!

Y’all know my husband? The man who eats all my food? The one who hasn’t cooked anything other than french toast, bacon, and eggs in the past 10 years? The one who thought whipped cream came from egg whites and not, you know, cream…that had been whipped? The man who refuses to try anything that might have a hint of an onion in it, probably just on principle or to annoy me or because he’s just stubborn and not at all because he dislikes onions. I mean, he probably can’t even remember what onions taste like, it’s been so long since he’s eaten one.

Anyway. That man. He knows his cookies. He is a true cookie connoisseur. Sure, he is often unable to find the ranch dressing or jelly in our refrigerator (it’s in the same spot every time, you guys!), but he knows his way around the cookie jar.

These cookies that are eyeballing you right now? He made a comment about them being amazing. The best. Perfect. He used a lot of very nice adjectives, y’all. I think we can all take this to mean that these cookies are winners!

I’m a fan of super soft, not even slightly crunchy peanut butter cookies. These cookies? Fit the bill. They’re also chock full of Reese’s Pieces and chocolate chips.

    I just made Reese’s Pieces Peanut Butter Cookies last week! Our recipes are almost the exact same. I used all brown sugar, no white. And use a smidge more PB than you, but other than that, we could swap cookies & recipes :) Great minds clearly think alike!

    I almost thought you were talking about my husband with the exception of cooking french toast and bacon! I KNOW my husband would appreciate these cookies, that is unless I ate them first! I love soft cookies!

    Well, you know…my husband only cooks the french toast on Mother’s Day. The bacon is a weekly event though, but it’s not as great as it sounds. Bacon grease EVERYWHERE. :)

    Okay, the part about the ranch dressing? Last week I made homemade ranch dressing for my husband to snack on with carrots (he’s weird)…and when I asked him if he used it, he was oblivious as to what I was talking about. Girl, he had to MOVE the homemade dressing in order to get to the bottled stuff.

    These cookies? You are amazing!

    Now would you look at that. I would’ve used all the positive adjectives I know even if I was in his position because the cookies are indeed very appetizing. I really liked the last image where it showed the filling. It made my mouth drool.

    What can I use instead of peanut butter (I’m not fond of)? I will change
    the peanut butter reeese to just reese semi-choc. I really like everything else in this recipe

    @Sherry,

    Hi Sherry!

    I’m not sure what you’re fond of about this recipe, since it’s a peanut butter cookie with peanut butter candies? Maybe you’re looking for a chocolate chip cookie recipe?
