  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Mix in the melted chocolate and peanut butter. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and instant pudding mix; gradually blend into the peanut butter mixture. Stir in the oats and chopped peanut butter cups. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.

  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

I couldn't believe no one has rated this recipe yet! If you haven't tried them you have to they're wonderful. I made mine with the smaller cookie scoop so I ended up with around 7 dozen. Great way to use up leftover Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (hate to admit I still had some mini ones left from Christmas) Thank Michelle these are great! Read More

Fantastic cookies! A great balance of chocolate and PB and a wonderful soft but chewy texture. The recipe made over 6 dozen medium cookies enough to eat now and freeze for later. Read More

These cookies were out of this world! Very soft and full of peanut butter taste! NOTE: put peanut butter cups in refrigerator overnight for easy chopping and no melting. Read More

YUMMY! These cookies are so good. I wanted to make a big batch of good cookies so that I could give some away to a friend that just had her baby but still have enough for my family too. These made enough for both of us and where so YUMMY! Read More

very good! I used Reeses bites and only 1/2 the oats. You could probably get away without using oats at all. Read More

i thought these were just okay. they weren't as chocolaty as i thought nor as sweet as most cookies. this recipe made almost 7 dozen cookies. co-workers thought they had a 'light' taste not too rich. i substituted peanut butter chips for the chopped up PB cups. I probably won't make these again there are a lot of other recipes on this site that would be more suited to me when i need a PB & chocolate fix. Read More

These cookies were terrible. I was so disappointed in them! They had no flavor just bland. A waste of ingredients. Read More
