These giant peanut butter cup cookies are taken to a new level with chunks of mini peanut butter cups, crunchy peanuts and Reese’s Pieces candies! A peanut lover’s dream!





  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, place the softened butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar and mix on medium 1-2 minutes, or until the butter is pale and fluffy and fully combined. 
  4. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined, then mix in the peanut butter for another 30 seconds – 1 minute.
  5. Gently add the flour mixture and beat until just combined. Stir in the peanut butter candies and mini peanut butter cups.
  6. Scoop out large rounded spoonfuls of dough using a cookie scoop or large spoon. Roll the dough into a ball and place on the prepared sheet pan 2 inches apart. 
  7. Bake 12-14 minutes, or until the edges are golden and dry. Transfer to a wire rack and cool 10 minutes before serving.


Pro-tip: the peanut butter cups melt while baking. I saved a few leftover peanut butter cups and gently pressed them into the tops of the baked cookies shortly after they came out of the oven.
