Slam Dunk Peanut Butter Cookie Reese’s S’mores

This post brought to you by REESE’S® Brand. All opinions are 100% mine.

So, I’ve kind of been addicted to s’mores lately…and not the traditional kind. First, I made s’mores with Girl Scout Cookies. Now?

Now I’m making s’mores with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. You’re welcome.

Enter the best s’more ever: Peanut Butter Cookie Reese’s S’mores!

Reese's Peanut Butter Cookie S'mores | | A s'more made with a peanut butter cup!

As you probably already guessed from, oh, the 5,000,000 posts on this blog with peanut butter in them, I’m totally addicted to the stuff. Cookies, brownies, pie, breakfast. I can’t. Get. Enough.

One of my favorite candies are REESE’S® Peanut Butter Cups, which I’m sure you probably guessed by now. If a bag of them is in my house, I will eat all of them, no joke.

I *think* somewhere there is a proven scientific fact that one bag of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (no matter the size) is only one serving. Come on, back me up on this…right?

Anyway, what’s better than a peanut butter cookie and a peanut butter cup? A s’more made with both.

These? Are totally drool worthy.

I know, right?

They’re super easy to make too: take two rich peanut butter cookies (from my favorite recipe) and then make a s’more. I used the broiler to make my s’mores by placing a mini peanut butter cup on one cookie and a marshmallow half on the other. You heat them under the broiler for just a few seconds (really, don’t walk away from the stove!) and then sandwich them together.

The peanut butter cup gets gooey and oozey. The marshmallow gets melty and sticky. These are the best s’mores ever!

You could totally do this over an open flame in the traditional method. But then I’d have to be, you know, camping. #idontdothat

You can make these any way you want, for any event you’d like. They’d be perfect treat to feed all your friends that come over and watch the big basketball games this month. You could even do what I did and make the cookies look like basketballs before baking.

Cute food + s’mores + peanut butter cups = WIN

Slam Dunk Peanut Butter Reese’s S’mores

Yield: 2 dozen cookies


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • About 12 large marshmallows, cut in half
  • About 24 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures, unwrapped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment or silpat baking mats.
  2. Cream butter, peanut butter, and both sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add egg, vanilla, milk, and salt and baking soda. Mix until combined. Slowly add flour and mix until dough comes together.
  3. Scoop 1 tablespoon sized balls of dough and place them on prepared cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Gently press each ball with the palm of your hand to flatten. Using a spoon, make marks to resemble a basketball, if desired. (You can also make the criss cross marks with a fork instead.)
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the bottoms begin to look brown. Cool at least 5 minutes on cookie sheets before removing to a rack to cool completely.
  5. Assemble the s’mores: turn cookies upside down on a cookie sheet. Place large marshmallow halves on half the cookies and a peanut butter cup on the other half. Broil until the marshmallow is toasty and peanut butter cup is melty, under a minute. Make sandwiches and serve warm.
  6. Note: You can also toast the marshmallows the old fashioned way: over an open fire!

  4. That ooey gooey chocolate – oh my gosh Dorothy! These are definitely slam dunk cookies! I love the “s’mores” with peanut butter cookies. Can NOT wait to try these instead of s’mores (graham crackers are way overrated!) Pinned :)

  6. My favorite thing about going to the family cabin is s’mores night…seriously. And I don’t use boring old chocolate bars in my s’mores, I use full size pb cups. Melty choc and pb mixed with marchmallow and graham cracker goodness – yum! These cookies are the perfect fix for the other 49 weeks of the year I’m not able to make s’mores.

  7. I am starving for these now! :) These look amazing.

  8. We love making s’mores with peanut butter cups! Using peanut butter cookies instead of graham crackers will just make them even more irresistible!

  9. I had strawberry s’mores for the first time the other night at a bonefire. Used puffy sugar cookies, chocolate toasted marshmallow and even roasted strawberries over the fire to add to them. Next time I am going to suggest we make these!

  18. Of course I’ll vote – this is genius! Smores and peanut butter sound amazing. Haha, of course, one bag of Reeses (and Snickers) is totally one serving. Doesn’t everyone know that? ;)

    Wow, do these look good! Definitely pinning for future reference! And of course one bag of Reese’s is one serving! There’s not enough for more than one person, right? LOL….Thanks for sharing these cookies.


  20. Just finished voting! Yours was in bracket 10 out of 16… For the first 2 minutes, I was really scared I missed it! How often can we vote?? I really want you to win! :)

    I’ve basically stopped buying Reese’s because I can’t. stop. eating. them. EVER. And my guy hates PB, so when all of the wrappers end up in the trash can, you can guarantee who did it. And it’s not our chihuahua. (Thank goodness). Your s’mores look absolutely amazing! I love those gorgeous drips of melted chocolate and strings of marshmallow. I bet even Mel wanted a taste after seeing them on the counter!

  21. AH-MAZING! I’m sure my pb cookie recipe is different, but I had these bad boys planned for May. Totally beat me to it! Pinning, loving, and oh-so jealous that you got to work with Reese’s :)

  23. I love Reeses.. please tell me you think there is a difference between good and bad reeses. I always get so depressed when I bite into what I consider a bad reeses!! :( But a good reeses, marshmallow and peanut butter cookies?! Wowza!! These would be deadly to have around!!

    I voted for you, Dorothy! Good luck! And I have to make these for the family – my daughter’s first taste of sugar, at 3 years old, was a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup. She was totally focused, like ” where has this been all my life?!”

  25. Smores with PB cups?? What an amazing idea!!

  29. Wow….these are incredibly! Beautiful photography, too. I definitely think a batch of these is in my near future!

  30. It’s been raining for hrs and I was looking for something to bake for my husband to have after his hockey game tonight. No need to look any further!
    Also-for the past year, I’ve been trying different combinations for s’mores. Using my homemade cookies as well as any store bought. Biscoffs, and those windmill spice cookies are good, as well as Milanos (double chocolate of course!) and all sorts of chocolate. Snickers, Crunch Bars, Milky Ways…well…I HAD to use up the leftover Halloween candy, right?!

  31. I cannot contain my excitement. Thank you for enabling my peanut butter cup addiction! They are really the number-one go to candy choice. And these look like the best of all worlds.
