Reeses Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies - this is the BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe and it's stuffed with a peanut butter cup!

I can’t even express to you how amazing these Reese’s Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies are. Were. (Very much “were”, they didn’t last long!)

My favorite brown butter chocolate chip cookie, saturated with mini chocolate chips, stuffed with a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Oh man, these were my undoing. (As is everything on this site…but these especially).

You’d think that 2 tablespoons of cookie dough sandwiched with a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup would be filling, but nope. Turns out they’re way too easy to eat one after the other when you’re binge reading The Martian in two days flat.

(Have you read that book? Oh my gosh, my new obsession. I almost went back and re-read it immediately. I spent the entire book fearing the end…and now I want to see the movie extra bad. If it’s 1% as good as the book, it’ll be amazing.)

Reading and cookie binging…that’s pretty much how I do the weekends around here.

So, what makes these cookies so amazing?


How To Make Reese’s Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

But besides that? The cookie dough. As we talked about a few weeks ago, this cookie dough is the bomb dot com. I was actually told by one reader that it was “better than Alton Brown’s recipe” which, really, made my life.

Brown butter in cookie dough is THE thing you must do. It takes an extra 5 minutes but it’s so absolutely worth.

Also worth it? Chilling the dough over night. Don’t skip that step. Don’t eat it all while it’s chilling, either. When you bake extra cold from-the-fridge cookie dough? It stays uber soft and gooey inside. It puffs up nicely and doesn’t spread too thin.

In a word? Chilling the dough makes it perfect.

Also what makes it perfect? STUFFING THEM WITH REESE’S.

Reese's Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies - my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe stuffed with a peanut butter cup! So easy to make!

Calories 242 kcal
Author Dorothy Kern


  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • About 28 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Miniatures unwrapped


  1. Note: This dough requires chilling!
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring often, about 6 minutes, until it becomes brown in color. It will foam, reduce, then foam again. Once it’s done cooking the foam is a light brown and it will dissipate after you remove it from the heat. Once it starts to brown, keep stirring so it doesn’t burn. Let sit for about 5 minutes to cool.
  3. Pour butter into an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment. (You can also use a hand mixer.) While still hot, add both sugars and mix on low until combined. Let sit to cool for a few minutes, then mix in the eggs and vanilla. Mix in the baking soda and salt, then slowly mix in flour until mixture is just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Scoop 2 tablespoon balls of cookie dough and wrap a peanut butter cup in each one, rolling between your hands to completely conceal. Place balls on cookie sheet. Spacing doesn’t matter, you’ll be chilling the dough. Cover cookie sheet with plastic wrap and chill at least 4 hours (but overnight is better.)
  5. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place cookies 2” apart on 2 cookie sheets and bake (while the balls are cold from the refrigerator) for about 12-15 minutes or until they just begin to turn brown and are no longer glossy on top. Cool at least 5 minutes on cookie sheet before removing.
  6. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to one month.
