Cookies were not meant to be boring, which is why I equally LOVE these Bailey’s Chocolate Cookies, Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies, and Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies. Go ahead, click on over and see how fast your mouth waters.

Even these Lemon Glazed Cookies bring something unique to the table. All glorious for their own reasons, and all most worthy to be made and enjoyed.

Just after I made these Chocolate Reese’s Pieces Cookies, I walked down the hall past the twins playing in a bedroom just in time to hear one say to the other, “Wow, those cookies Mom made sure were good, huh?”.

So often we get compliments on something we cook or bake, yet it’s the ‘behind the back’ remarks that really stand out. In this case, I continued walking while smiling ear to ear.

Thank you and you’re very welcome my sweet babies.

I made these cookies for the girls cheer team. It was a potluck event at the beach, and since everyone was making so many foods, snacks and salads – I decided on bringing a dessert to finish off the meal and the great day.

Inspiration for Chocolate Reese’s Pieces Cookies came from a craving of a cookie, and both chocolate and peanut butter.

I usually have bags of chocolate chips and various candy hidden in the baking cupboard for times like these. When I realized that the bag of Reese’s Pieces were still there, and not found and devoured – I knew this was THE cookie to bake and take.

After deciding on the ingredients, and successful tasting which concluded that it was worthy to be included in my recipe box her on My Organized Chaos, the name for this cookie was the only debate.

I mean, it’s really ‘double chocolate’ and not just ‘chocolate’, so would it be, white chocolate chocolate Reese’s Pieces cookies? Double Chocolate Reeses’s Pieces Cookies?

I finally settled on Chocolate Reese’s Pieces Cookies but note there’s both the milk and white varieties.

Of course though, since I’ve said so many times that I adore white chocolate, there would be no question of its inclusion where I can.

Chocolate Reese's Pieces Cookies are moist, fluffy - with milk chocolate, white chocolate and Reese's Pieces - it's the perfect cookie dessert. 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup White Sugar
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 3/4 cup Cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 3/4 cup Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 4/3 cup White Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup Reese's Pieces

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and a baking sheet a with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Using a mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and both sugars until fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla, and combine.
  3. Slowly add the flour combined with the cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Mix until combined.
  4. Remove bowl from mixer and using a wooden spoon or spatula, gently fold in the chocolate chips and Reese's Pieces.
  5. Place drops of 1" balls onto the parchment paper {you can make them larger but then leave more room in between and adjust minutes baking}, and bake for 8-9 minutes or until centers are just set. I like to make sure they aren't cooked too much or else they won't be as soft and fluffy.
