There is Peanut Butter in My Chocolate!

Chocolate Cookies with Reese's Mini Cups

2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
2 cups Reese's mini cups (2! 8 ounce bags!)

Preheat oven to 325
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.

Beat butter, sugars and vanilla in the bowl of an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add flour mixture. Blend well. I beat in the reese's mini cups, (less than a minute of beating) some of them broke open and leaving swirls of peanut better and chocolate through the dough.

Using the medium cookie scoop drop onto parchment lined baking sheets.

Bake for 11 to 14 minutes or until cookies puff up and bit and the center is set. Cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
Together the cookies make a nice presentation! The swirls of peanut butter in the chocolate and the chocolate in the peanut butter. Looks good! And tasty too!
