Okay, here's the reason why I haven't posted a card today:
These are my famous peanut butter cup cookies!  I can only bake them when my husband is out of town because he has a peanut allergy, and he's gone until late tonight.  The teachers at school LOVE them, and I ran out BEFORE Christmas, so while he's out of town, I'm baking peanut butter cookies like crazy.  Here's how to do it!

Step 1: Buy Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix and make cookie dough according to directions on package.
Step 2: Unwrap your miniature Reese's peanut butter cups so they are ready to use.

Step 3: Roll cookie dough into balls that will fit into a mini muffin pan like this:
Step 3: Bake in oven according to directions on the back of the package.  I leave mine in for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees because I use non-stick mini muffin pans.  When you take them out of the oven, they should look like this:
Step 4: Take unwrapped miniature Reese's peanut butter cups and push them into the center of each cookie while they are still in the mini muffin pan.  They will look like this:
Step 5: Let the cookies cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes.  Then, use a butter knife to loosen them around the edges and "pop" them out of the mini muffin pan.  Be careful: the chocolate on top is melted and will make a big mess if you don't just "ease" them out of the pan!  I put them on a cookie sheet or some other type of tray and put them in the freezer.  Once frozen, then I can store them in the freezer in gallon Ziploc bags until I need them.  They are very easy to make since you use a store-bought mix, but EVERYONE just loves them.  I only give about 6 as a gift to teachers because they are so rich and they have been known to eat them all in one day!  LOL


  1. Looks very yummy! I can see why they might eat all 6 in one day. Ha, ha.

  2. I even have a mix like that in the pantry. When I'm feeling better, I'll have to buy the Reese's cups.

  3. These look delish and fun to make! Yum!

  4. My FAVORITES!! Now I know NOT to put them back in the oven.......they didn't look as good as your's, but they were still yummy!

  5. Oh my just saw these and they look so yummy!!!!

  6. these sure do look good but do have a wuestion
    You said use 'mini' muffin pan but that looks more like a regular size muffin tin. Which size is you pan?
    Also, about how many does this recipe make?
