Why You’ll Love This Recipe
These Reese’s peanut butter cup cookies are chocolate pudding cookies based on my Triple Chocolate Pudding Cookies. Which, by the way, are excellent, too.
This time I had Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in the pantry. Match made in heaven, and now we have a new pudding cookie. ALL of my pudding cookie recipes are the best!
- The pudding makes these cookies so soft, and they stay that way for days. Make a batch, and they’ll keep at room temperature for up to five days! And they will still be as soft and decadent on day five as they were on day one.
- They are all about the chocolate – chocolate pudding mix and cocoa powder combine to make a rich and chocolaty cookie.
- They are also easy to make! The only hard part is waiting for the dough to chill, but I can promise you these cookies are worth the wait. They have the most amazing puffy, soft texture.
If you love chocolate and peanut butter candy, you will agree these are the Best. Cookies. Ever.
