Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies recipe from Annie’s Eats

  • 2 cups smooth peanut butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 24 miniature reeses peanut butter cups YUM
  • miniature marshmallows
  • 4 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    2 tbsp. sugar
    2 tbsp. water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In the bowl of a mixer combine peanut butter, sugar and eggs and beat until combined. 

 Fill 24 mini muffin tins with a ball of dough. 

Poke a hole in the middle of the dough and mold it to the edges like a tart shell.

Bake for 13-15 minutes.  While they’re baking unwrap the peanut butter cups (You will be super tempted to eat one….don’t do it!  You need all of them!) 

Cookies will be almost baked….remove them from the oven and press a peanut butter cup into the centre of each cookie so the top is level.

Add 3-4 mini marshmallows on top of each cookie.

Return them to the oven for 3-4 more minutes.

 Now you need to let them cool.  Seriously let them cool completely!

Run a knife around the edge and gently lift them out of the muffin tins.

To make the Chocolate Ganache:

Heat the cream, sugar and water (don’t let it come to a boil).

Pour the hot cream mixture over the chocolate and let it sit for 30 seconds.  Gently whisk it together and let it stand a few minutes to thicken up.

Drizzle or Dip the tops of the cookies in the chocolate and top with M&M’s.  I would have used mini m&m’s but I could only find pirate coloured ones. so I used crushed up m&m’s instead.

    those are amazing. how do you find the time when you work and have two little ones. I’m retired and the recipe bogs my mind. I think baking could be a money maker for you
    love you

    Katie,, I’m making these right now. I’m not going to do the ganache but I’ll just dip them in melted chocolate and sprinkle some nuts on the them. I want to eat them all. I let you know how they turn out.
