Peanut Butter Temptations

I know, another peanut butter and chocolate recipe. What can I say? I love pb and chocolate together! These little gems are so yummy. And they are fun, too! I often get questions on how I make these, along with requests for the recipe. They are actually quite easy.

Peanut Butter Temptations

▪ ½ cup butter
▪ ½ cup creamy peanut butter
▪ ½ cup brown sugar
▪ ½ cup sugar
▪ 1 egg
▪ ½ teaspoon vanilla
▪ 1½ cups flour
▪ ¾ teaspoon baking soda
▪ ½ teaspoon salt
▪ 1 bag (14 oz.) Reese's miniature peanut butter cups

Cream butter, peanut butter, and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla. Mix together flour, soda, and salt and blend into creamed mixture. Shape into 1 inch balls and place in ungreased mini-muffin pans. Bake at 375ºF for 8-10 minutes until light brown. Remove from oven and immediately press one unwrapped peanut butter cup into each cookie. Cool for 10 minutes. Carefully remove from pan and let cool completely.

Notes: It is always a good idea to have the peanut butter cups unwrapped before the cookies come out of the oven. That way all you have to do is press the peanut butter cups into the cookie as soon as you remove them from the oven. Yum!
