Reese’s Sandwich Cookies are a real indulgence. Cookies filled to the brim with tasty ingredients and then sandwiched with a peanut butter frosting and a Reese’s peanut butter cup center.

You’ve guessed it, this is one heck of a cookie! Super moist chocolate cookies are loaded with mini peanut butter cups, chocolate chips, and peanut butter chips!

These are overloaded, I am not kidding with these, and that is in a good way. These are one of those Sandwich Cookies that you literally savor. They are rich, flavorful, and deliciously sinful.

I sometimes can’t help myself when it comes to combining some of my favorite flavors, but when it comes to these Reese’s Sandwich Cookies, everything pairs so well.

With the silky peanut butter frosting that is encased by two chocolate and peanut butter-filled cookies and a Reese’s peanut butter cup tucked inside, you just can’t go wrong at all.

I know some people will say OMG, the calories, yes, I do agree, but I also have the motto that everything is in moderation. I will not keep myself from these pleasures but will limit them.

Trust me when I say that you at least have to give these Reese’s Sandwich Cookies a try at least once! You absolutely will not regret it.

Some of my other favorite chocolate and peanut butter desserts include: Peanut Butter Lasagna, Peanut Butter Oreo Buckeyes and M&M Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies.

HOW TO MAKE REESE’S SANDWICH COOKIES:

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies:

  1. Preheat oven to 350. In the bowl of an electric mixer (or hand mixer) cream the butter and sugars, 2-3 minutes until fluffy. Blend in the egg and vanilla, scraping the sides of the bowl if needed.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Slowly add in the dry mix to the wet a little at a time until fully combined, scraping the sides.
  3. Slowly add in the milk, fold in the chocolate peanut butter chips and cups.
  4. Roll dough into 2 tablespoons-sized balls, and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake 9-12 minutes. Let cool completely on the baking sheet.

Peanut Butter Frosting:

  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter with a hand mixer. Add the peanut butter and vanilla, mix well. Slowly add in the powdered sugar, alternating with the heavy cream.
  2. Beat for 2-3 minutes until fluffy.

Sandwich Cookie Assembly:

  1. Take one cookie and pipe frosting in a circle around the outside edge, place a peanut butter cup in the center. Top with another cookie, serve and enjoy!

CAN I USE REESE’S PIECES?

If you would rather use Reese’s Pieces instead of mixing chocolate chips and peanut butter chips, I say go ahead. 

You get the chocolate and peanut butter flavor all in one candy! Or you can add it in addition to the chocolate and peanut butter chips to enhance the flavor even more.

DO I HAVE TO PUT A PEANUT BUTTER CUP IN BETWEEN THE SANDWICHES?

As much indulgence that this really enhances in this Sandwich Cookie, you do not need to add a peanut butter cup to the center if you do not want to.

What you will need to do is make a little more frosting to make sure that the whole cookies are filled, though. So I would add another half of the peanut butter frosting recipe.

WHAT ELSE CAN I ADD TO THESE SANDWICH COOKIES?

While we have pretty much covered and got all the greatest additions added to these Reese’s Sandwich Cookies, you can also dip them in melted chocolate or drizzle it over the top.

HOW TO STORE:

These can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature, where they will keep for up to 2-3 days.

They can also be frozen, place in a freezer container, where they will keep for up to 3 months.

To defrost, remove to the countertop overnight until thawed.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • This recipe can be doubled to serve more people or to sell at bake sales, etc.
  • Use Reese’s Pieces in the cookies instead of chocolate and peanut butter chips.
  • You can use the Peanut Butter Cup in the center or leave it out, if you do, I would suggest making some more frosting to ensure that they are filled.
  • Switch things up by changing the frosting in the center and try chocolate buttercream instead.
  • These can be frozen, see above on how to do that.

  1. Yum! These look delicious! Chocolate and peanut butter are the best combination ever!

  2. These look seriously amazing! Here’s hoping it’s not 90 degrees soon so I can turn on my oven. 😉 Pinned for later. (visiting from Wake Up Wednesday)

    Could I use a cookie scoop for this recipe or an ice cream scoop? If cookie scoop is to small then what time and temp should I use?
