Chocolate Reese’s Cookies

My coworker and family friend, Jason, is always bringing in coffee with creamer every Saturday. His usual favorite is Reese’s (can you blame him?). So in honor of his birthday Friday, I made these bad boys. I was looking for a more cake-style cookie and this is what I came up with. I’m glad we’re dropping these off with him and his birthday buddy Phil today at a small (social distancing friendly😷) get together, because if I keep these in the house any longer I think I’d gain back any weight I’ve lost the past few weeks running! As usual, I got no complaints from the Joe man. Just a quick grab-and-run when I asked him if he wanted to try one.

*I was just shy a full cup of Reese’s to put in the recipe (someone’s tiny fingers were sneaking them while I was mixing things together). So they SHOULD look a bit more Reese’s filled!🙃

Ingredients:

  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 c white sugar
  • ¾ c brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tbs vanilla
  • 2 c flour
  • ½ c cocoa powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 c Reese Pieces

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and baking powder with a whisk. Set aside.
  3. With a hand mixer or standing mixer, cream together butter and both sugars. Add in eggs and vanilla.
  4. Slowly add in your dry ingredients until well combined. Add in Reese’s Pieces and stir with a wooden spoon (You can add extra if you want them REALLY loaded up!).
  5. Scoop 1 inch balls onto greased baking sheet 1 inch apart.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Transfer onto a wire rack and let cool.
