Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Cups

Cookie cups are on my mind! I’ve been having lots of fun creating some new recipes. My sweet tooth is very satisfied.

In this recipe, I used two Reese’s products – Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Spread and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. They turned out perfectly!

The cookie cup itself is made from Pillsbury Chocolate Chip refrigerated dough. It’s so easy to work with.

I finished them off with a drizzle of chocolate sauce – the kind you use on an ice cream sundae. If you are a fan of Reese’s or the chocolate/peanut butter combination, you need to try this recipe!

If I can ever find the Reese’s White Chocolate Peanut Cups, I’ll make a white chocolate version. Those are even better, in my opinion!
