  • 1/2 cup butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 12 fun size candy bars or full size Reese's cups


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Cream together the butter, peanut butter, and sugars. Beat in the egg until light and fluffy.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Place two tablespoons of cookie dough on the prepared baking sheet and smash down a bit. Place a candy bar in the center. Drop another tablespoon of dough on top of the candy bar and cover the candy bar with the dough. The cookies will spread quite a bit to be around 4 to 5 inches in diameter, so place them far apart on the baking sheet. 
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes.
