  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter Smooth
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar Packed
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 large Egg Beaten
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 tbsp Milk
  • 1/2 cup Butter Softened
  • 1 3/4 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 40 Mini Peanut Butter Cups


  • Unwrap the mini peanut butter cups.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, using a hand mixer or stand mixer, cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy (about 2 minutes).
  • Add the egg, vanilla, and milk to the peanut butter mixture, and continue to mix for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture and mix until just combined.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, portion the mixture into 40 balls and place each one into the cavity of an ungreased mini muffin pan.
  • Bake for 8 minutes. The cookies should just start to brown and hold their shape on the edges. The centers may look slightly underdone.
  • Remove from the oven, and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball.
  • Allow to cool and carefully remove from pan.
