Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Susan from Food Blogga

Makes 24 cookies

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks
6 snack size Reese's candies (chilled then diced)
1/2 cup coarsely chopped unsalted peanuts

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars, then beat in the eggs until smooth. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl; add to the large bowl, and beat until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chunks, Reese's candy, and peanuts.

Drop 2 tablespoons of cookie dough 2 inches apart (as they will spread) on the parchment-lined baking sheets.

Bake cookies for 13-15 minutes, or until firm and golden brown around the edges. Transfer to a rack and cool for 15 minutes.

To store cookies, layer between pieces of waxed paper to prevent sticking and place in an air-tight container.
