Only FIVE ingredients in these simple, from scratch, Peanut Butter Cup Cookies with a Reese’s mini cup tucked inside.
Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
They sold out really fast, but my margins weren’t great so we only profited about $25. The Sharks would be so disappointed.
I picked these cookie cups because they’re simple, good, easy to transport, and a batch makes quite a few. Perfect for a bake sale.

Ingredients for Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
Below is a list of ingredients you’ll need to help you prep. Scroll all the way down for the full recipe card.
Sugar – Granulated white sugar.
Egg – One large egg.
Vanilla Extract – Use a high quality vanilla extract (not imitation) or make your own vanilla.
Peanut Butter – I use creamy and like Jif or Skippy Natural.
Reese’s Mini Cups – I like the original or dark chocolate. White chocolate is also an option.
How to make Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
STEP ONE: First, mix together the sugar, egg, vanilla, and peanut butter to a large mixing bowl.
STEP TWO: Next, either spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick spray or use mini cupcake wrappers. Use a cookie scoop to portion the cookie dough out to the 24 wells. Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes at 350°. They should be just golden.
STEP THREE: Finally, immediately from the oven, press a mini Reese’s cup into each cookie (be careful, they’re hot!). Let them cool/set and then enjoy!
