Loaded Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cookies

I found this recipe at My Kitchen Cafe and made them for my son's preschool teachers for Valentine's Day. I haven't had one yet, but Jacks and Travis approved!

Loaded Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cookies
from My Kitchen Cafe

Makes about 36 cookies. *I made large cookies and it made 29 cookies*

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 cup Reese’s Pieces *I left these out*
1 package mini Reese’s peanut butter cups, cut into halves and then frozen

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl or stand mixer, cream together the butter, peanut butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, and baking soda; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Mix in the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and Reese’s Pieces (this is best done by hand so the shells of the Reese's Pieces don't get broken).

Drop by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper or silpat liner. Push one peanut butter cup half into the center of each ball of dough. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool for 1 or 2 minutes on sheet before removing, or they will fall apart.
