Reese\'s Pieces Double Chocolate Cookies

Have I got a winning recipe for you today! Who doesn’t love a delicious chocolate and peanut butter combination? How about some Reese’s Pieces Double Chocolate Cookies? Don’t they sound purely evil? This cookie is double trouble: two hits of peanut butter and two hits of chocolate keeping it rich, moist and decadent.

These little devils are chewy, crunchy, and completely addicting fresh out of the oven.{I have yet to meet a cookie I don’t like fresh out of the oven.} These did not last long at my sister’s house. All 7 of us devoured them! Actually my niece had a friend over to play, so technically, there were 8 people eating cookies yesterday afternoon.

Reese\'s Pieces Double Chocolate Cookies

The best part about this recipe is the only uncommon ingredient that you may have to go pick up are the Reese’s Pieces. Everything else should be in your pantry. Butter, peanut butter, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, flour…..see? Nothing out of the ordinary here! Just use the usual cookie method to whip these up and 8 minutes later they are baked to perfection. Make sure you have plenty of milk on hand for these! You’re gonna need it!

Happy Wednesday, friends! πŸ™‚

    mmm! Thanks for sharing this recipe. I’ve been looking for something like this to make for my sister-in-law’s birthday. She loves Reese’s Pieces.

    I’m new to your blog. Can you give me your top 3 desert recommendations for a family reunion? Need something a little out of the ordinary, kid-friendly. What are your biggest crowd pleasers? TIA!

  3. Marilyn Brennan

    I’ll be these _are_ fabulous! I’d love to make these someday…probably when babysitting grandchildren!

  4. Lindsey @ Gingerbread Bagels

    Oh how I LOVE Reese’s Pieces but in cookies is even better! These look soooo good. πŸ™‚

    These look amazing!!! But how do you melt your chocolate? I tried making chocolate dipped pretzels one time but ended up with burnt flavored chocolate. Oops!

    1. Lauren

      I put mine in a bowl and microwave it at 50% power. It takes a little time, but it always works like a charm. Make sure you mix it every 30 seconds or so. And, when your chocolate is almost melted, don’t microwave it any more! Just keep stirring it- the residual heat will melt the rest. No one likes burnt chocolate!

  6. Baking Serendipity

    Reese’s Pieces were one of my favorite candies as a child…I think I might love them even more in cookie form πŸ™‚

    These look great and would probably disappear quickly in my kitchen even if I was the only one eating them!

    these look so good. my husband loves PB and chocolate (and unfortunately for my waistline, I love the combo too!).
    He has been asking me to make PB cookies this week so I think I am going to make these. They look soft and chewy too, which I prefer in cookies.

  9. Andrea L

    These were SOOOOOO good! I had to run a few extra miles this past weekend to make up for how many I ate πŸ™‚
    I made them for my hubby for Father’s Day since he LOVES PB and chocolate and I also made some from my brother since this was his first Father’s Day. They both loved them.
    The reeses were a nice touch and I love that you melted the chocolate before adding.
    They were soft, and moist and addictive. Thanks for a great recipe!

    I was looking for a halloween cookie recipe and your site came up on a google search for reese’s pieces chocolate cookie recipes! So good, mine came out cake-like. This was the only recipe from my search that included peanut butter in the ingredients. Yum, yum. I didn’t have chocolate chips, so i just added more cocoa powder. Still good!
