Easy to make...I always unwrap all my candy place them on a plate and stick in the freezer ...so when the cookies come out the oven and I place the candy inside they don't melt as fast...I make them every year at Christmas they are the first to go
I've made these for a few years now--on my list of Christmas cookies! Always a favorite of many in my family
Very delicious and easy to make. I need to get a bigger mini-muffin pan....it only makes 12 at a time. I plan on making these cookies again!
I made these with peppermint sugar cookie dough and candy cane cups and a second batch with oatmeal butterscotch dough and caramel cups .. both were sooo good and not quite as super rich as the peanut butter with peanut butter cups....
Easy to make and taste delicious very easy to pop in your mouth.
These are fantastic and easy to make. I made them for a Valentine's treat and they were a huge hit. I will make again for Easter and Christmas.
I must be doing something wrong. I couldn't get the peanut butter cup to go into the cookie without imelting. I let them cool for an hour and the chocolate was stil all gooey when I tried to take them out of the pan. I couldn't figure out how to take them out of the pan so i used a spoon. Also, the peanut butter cup is not inside the cookies but resting on top. Was I supposed to make a well for the candy to go into? It was not mentioned in the recipe. I love to bake and was very excited to make these for Christmas...but i don't think they are supposed to come out like this so i am very disappointed. :(
Followed the recipe as shown, very easy and fun for the grandchilden to help. They are scrumptious. We absolutely loved them. Great recipe to make again and again!
These are delicious!
This was indeed easy and they tasted good. I only got about 28 cookies though and they did'nt look way bigger than the picture or anything. I think I would double the recipe next time and especially if I were to make them for a potluck or something like that.
Easy and delicious!
I made this and it is easy, and fabulous. They even freeze well. They look very pretty in their own mini cupcake liner.
I made these for friends who are peanut butter/chocolate fans, so I expected them to be well received. They absolutely loved them! I must have made them a bit bigger than I should have because I only made 39 instead of 48....but I'm not complaining!!! These were easy to make, and really had visual appeal as well as tasting great.
These cookies are wonderful and very easy to make. They came out perfectly. This is a good recipe to make with kids. My 9 year old loved making these with me. Have gotten lots of compliments on these cookies. My husband is not a big fan of peanut butter cookies but he loved these. He couldn't stay out of the cookie jar.
These are an all time fave. I don't have a mini-muffin pan. So, we used mini muffin liners and they worked great. I actually like them better that way because it adds a nice touch on a platter to have them each in their individual wrappers.
also works well with white chocolate reeses
Easy preparation!Family favorite..... Loved by all whenever I take them to a function to be shared. Very hard to eat just one!!!
These were super simple to make and they look so pretty! My son just loved them, hard to make just one batch!
I made these for the first time. They were really good. I made half with the reeses white chocolate cups.
This recipe is as easy as it is delicious! Great dessert to serve for those "mingling" around as no plate or fork is required! Everyone loved them!
I made these a few years ago and they were a huge hit. A few weeks ago my fiance asked me to make these for Christmas, I have to make a batch just for him, otherwise there won't be any left to put on the cookie trays. Super simple and super delicious.
Made these for the first time last year and they were a hit. If you love peanut butter and chocolate, you'll love these !
Very simple to make. Should be a big hit with your peanut butter lovers.
Impossible to eat just one, I make these for my hunny and he can't get enough, now I make them for ALL family gatherings, they go faster then anything else.
Excellent, easy to make and the kids love them.
easy to make and if you like peanut butter these are the ones to make

This year, my grandson Clark is 3 years old, so I wanted to make some cookies that he would love to eat and would find to be fun, too. These adorable Powdered Sugar Snowmen Cookies are just the ticket.
Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
