I’m a candy bar lover, there’s no secret about that. I also adore peanut butter cookies, so adding a little chocolate candy bar to said cookie, is a truly delicious combination. These candy bar peanut butter cookie cups are great for the holidays and perfect for impressing friends and relatives!
Candy Bar Peanut Butter Cookie Cups
While I think topping a peanut butter cookie is quite yummy, I’ll be honest, seeing some of the desserts that are stuffed with other desserts don’t look very appetizing to me. An Oreo cookie is amazing on its own, as is a chocolate chip cookie. But there’s something about baking an Oreo inside of a chocolate chip cookie that makes my stomach feel weird. I think they are two completely different types of cookies, so putting them together just seems like flavor overload and something would get lost in the translation. Maybe it’s just me.
But I don’t feel that way about these candy bar peanut butter cookie cups. These are spectacular. Just the right amount of pizazz to add to a plain peanut butter cookie. I hope you like them!
