The cup is a moist and chewy peanut butter cookie. I melted some Reese peanut butter chips at the bottom of each cup to take this dessert to a whole new level. And does it ever soar!

The filling is creamy and sweet made with a combination of cream cheese, smooth peanut butter and icing sugar (otherwise known as powdered sugar). I finished it off with a couple Reese peanut butter chips on top. You could also be bold and put peanuts, if you wish. How daring of you!
