Reese’s Chewy Chocolate Cookies Recipe

Reese's Chewy Chocolate CookiesI love a good homemade chocolate cookie and when I make chocolate cookies, I like to follow the recipe on the back of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips. If you like a very chewy & soft cookie…these are for you! This recipe will make about 4 dozen cookies, depending on the size that you make them. I like large ones…so it makes less for me. I’ve been making these for years for the kids and grandkids.

Note: The recipe calls for 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. I don’t use imitation vanilla and I use high-quality pure vanilla so I cut that down to 1 teaspoon when I make this recipe.

Reese’s Chewy Chocolate Cookies Recipe

2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup Hershey’s cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 cups butter or margarine, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Stir together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. In another bowl, beat together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add in the eggs and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in the flour mixture until everything is well combined. Hand stir in the peanut butter chips until combined.

Drop the batter by a big teaspoon onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a preheated oven for 8-9 minutes or until done. Don’t over-bake them! They will be soft in the center. Remove and let cool. Store in an airtight container.

    This is a great recipe for those who love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. it is the perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter in a delicious cookie.

  2. Great recipe. We are going to bake some for our friends and guests, thanks for the idea

  3. My husband would love these and I am going to have to keep these in mind. No kidding when he went through radiation and stuff and we were trying to keep weight on him, one of the things he aate tons of is peanut butter cups. It has peanut butter (protein) and the chocolate was just a bonus calorie wise.
    He STILL eats a bunch of them!

  4. I’ve never seen the Reese’s peanut butter chips so I’ll have to look for them. I only use real vanilla.
