What do you get when you combine chocolate chip cookie dough, Reese’s peanut butter cups and brownie mix??? I call it a little slice of heaven! If you’re a fan of these three things as much as I am, then you will fall in love with this amazing concoction. For real. And when I tell you they’re super easy to make, I kid you not.
- 1 package of break-apart cookie dough
- 24 regular or snack size Reese’s peanut butter cups
- 1 box of brownie mix
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Flatten a square of the chocolate chip cookie dough into the wells of a muffin tin (or in cupcake liners).
- Place a Reese’s, upside down, on top of the cookie dough.
- Prepare brownie batter as directed on the box, and spoon over Reese’s-cookie dough, 3/4 full.
- Bake for 20 minutes.
- Let cool on wire rack.
- Enjoy the deliciousness!

How many cookies does one recipe make?
As you can see from the pictures, they’re more like cupcakes than cookies. You’ll be using 24 Reese’s cups, so the recipe makes 2 dozen.
Sorry to bother……will I need more than one brownie mix?
No bother at all, Pam!! I actually just made these over the weekend to bring to a party, and only made a dozen, but did have leftover brownie mix. The brownie mix I used this time was thicker than the other ones I’ve used, and looked liked it may not make another full dozen. To be on the safe side, I would have another box on hand, just in case 🙂
Thanks…….making these for a party Friday nite:)
I just made these today and they did come out very gooie. I did put them in cup cake holders and glad I did since the first batch I baked for 18 min. and I felt they were under baked.The second I baked for 20 and they are still cooling. The box of brownie mix I used just made it and the recipe I followed didn’t mention break apart cookie dough which really makes sense.
Marie, from the sounds of it, you followed another recipe and not mine? My apologies, but I’m not sure what your comment is about if you didn’t use my recipe.
I made this with miniature muffin pans. My kids loved them. We cut miniature reese’s in half and it was perfect. It is a very sweet dessert so the mini size is great.
Raegan, I’m so glad your kids loved them and agree about the mini size!
I made this using just cupcake holders and the brownie mix made 22 of the cupcakes and everyone of them were delicious!
Jim, so happy you enjoyed them… thanks for your comment 🙂
I also made these and used mini Reece’s ( just kinda smushed them on top of the cookie dough), and I baked them for 24 mins….perfect!
So glad they turned out perfect for you, Rose!!
I made these this past weekend and they turned out great. I used dark chocolate brownie mix for a deeper chocolate flavor. However, I baked them for about 23-25 minutes and they set up great. In some of them I used Ghiradelli dark chocolate squares with caramel, awesome! I’m going to make some more later this week, but I plan on using peanut butter pull apart cookies and either snack size Snickers or some Rolos. This may be my new go to dessert recipe!
Shannon, I’m so glad you enjoyed them, and love your variations!!! It’s so much fun to take a recipe and experiment with different ideas. Being such a Reese’s freak, I have a hard time veering away from them, but plan to try out other other yummy options 🙂
What size reese’s cups did you use? Regular or snack size?
I use regular size Reese’s (I tried to show the ones I use in a pic), but you could always use smaller ones if you like; however, if you like Reese’s, definitely go for the larger ones!
Is it easier to use the cupcake liners or to just pour the mix directly into the tin?
As you can see by the pictures, I used cupcake liners, and think it’s much easier this way (and makes clean up easier). Also, if serving to guests, I think it looks nicer to serve in the liners 🙂
Do you need to grease the liners or the pan?
Heather, if you’re using liners, you don’t need to grease them or the pan. However, if you choose not use cupcake liners, then definitely grease the pan. Hope that helps!
Oh and just saying… I just did this for the first time and do not use the ninety nine cent store cookie mix and brownie mix because the cookie will turn out all hard!! thanks for this recipe, hopefully it will work 🙂
Have you ever layered it in a cake pan instead of cupcakes?
I haven’t yet tried it in a cake pan but that sounds like a great idea!
Thanks for sharing this Awesome and easy recipe ! My little one LOVES them! Thank you!
My pleasure, and I’m so happy to hear your little one enjoys them!! 🙂
How long do you bake in mini muffin tins?
Jade, I haven’t made the mini version but to be safe, I would check them at 15 minutes, but they’ll probably need to bake for a little more time. When in doubt, check them every 5 minutes. Let me know how they turn out! Thanks!
Getting ready to make these now with my Grandson, can’t wait to taste them.. Neither can he even though he;’s one he sure is a piggy 🙂
Sorry for the late response… I was moving from California to Texas! I hope you all enjoyed them!
I love this recipe and having been using it for a long time now. I’m a manager at a fast food restaurant and whenever one of my crew person’s has a birthday, I make these cupcakes for them. They love the attention I give to them and they love their cupcakes! 🙂
That’s so awesome, Sue! It is a great recipe and so tasty, and I’m sure your crew appreciates you for making these for them!
