chocolate peanut butter cup cookies

Perfect for holiday parties, and peanut butter cravings, chocolate peanut butter cup cookies pack a tasty punch with minimal effort. You can either make them in a mini-muffin tin to make them muffin-cookies, or make them into crispy gooey cookies (my favorite way!). These can be enjoyed with a small glass of milk or crumbled over ice cream.

Ingredients (makes 36 mini muffins or 24 cookies):
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs milk
36 or 24 mini peanut butter cups

1. Preheat oven to 375degrees. Mix together flour, salt, and baking soda in a small bowl. Set aside.

2. Cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter, and brown sugar. Beat in egg, vanilla, and milk.

3. Add the flour mixture and mix.

4. Muffin-cookies: Shape in into small balls and place each in muffin tin. Push peanut butter cup into dough. 

Cookies: Make small balls and place on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Push peanut butter cup into dough. Top with another small dough ball like in the recipe for chocolate chip cookies with banana


5. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until melty and toasty.
