Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Every year for Christmas Derek always puts Reese's Pieces in my stocking. They're one of my favorite treats... but after me putting them in the kid’s stockings, and Derek putting them in mine, we had a ton of Reese's Pieces hanging around the house. After looking for ways to use up leftover Christmas candy, I decided that making these Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies would be the best bang for my Reese's Pieces buck.

There are a lot of peanut butter cookie recipes out there, but these were absolutely perfect. The kids and I were both huge fans. I can't speak for Derek because he worked the entire Christmas break and bas basically never home to eat any, but trust me, they were delightful. If you're in the market for some soft and chewy Reese's Pieces cookies. Look no further!

Ingredients:
1 large egg
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter
1 tbsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
1 cup Reese's Pieces
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, add the egg, brown sugar, peanut butter, butter and vanilla until mix until smooth and creamy, about five minutes, scraping down the sides as needed.

Gradually add in your flour, baking soda, and salt, and mix until all the ingredients just barely come together, don't over mix.

Finally, add in your Reese's Pieces and chocolate chips, and mix until evenly incorporated, again, don't over mix.

Using a standard 2 inch cookie scoop, scoop your dough out into balls, and place on a baking sheet lines with parchment paper. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for two hours.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350. Place the dough on a cookie sheet placed two inches apart. Bake for 8-9 minutes and pull out of the oven. Even if you don't think they're done, they are and will continue to bake on the cookie sheet.

Let rest for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely, about 12 minutes.
