· ·

Soft, chewy and delicious, these Reeses Pieces Chocolate Chip Cookies are loaded with peanut butter and chocolate flavors. 

One of my very favorite combinations outside of coffee and sugar is chocolate and peanut butter. Whoever invented Reese’s is my best friend in the entire world.  These peanut buttery cookies are soft and tasty. They store well and will stay soft for up to a week. 

Reese’s Pieces Cookies are my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe filled with Reese’s Pieces instead of chocolate chips. These easy cookies are a little bit peanut butter and a lot chocolate chip.

These Reeses Pieces Chocolate Chip Cookies really are the perfect cookie.  The cookie base is made with butter and brown sugar which makes them super soft and sweet.  These cookies also contain both baking powder and baking soda and using both will help give these cookies their nice puff.  I don’t know about you but I love thick cookies. Your friends and family will ask you to make these cookies over and over again. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Reeses Pieces Chocolate Chip Cookies

Can I freeze these cookies?

Your best bet is to freeze your cookie dough. You can roll it into a ball shaped cookie dough, or even in log form so you can just slice and bake.  Store in the freezer for up to three months.  Be sure to keep in a freezer safe bag.  If you freeze dough balls instead of a log be sure to flash freeze your dough before adding to your freezer bag or container.
