Chocolate Peanut Butter Halloween Cookies




I have a real problem. I can't stop making themed Halloween foods!! I got ahold of some googly eyeball sprinkles and the rest is history. From chocolate dipped pretzels to cookies, adding them makes everything SO FUN. I was looking for some chocolate cookies to make, and found a great recipe, then obviously had to bedazzle them with eyeballs. Can'tstopwon'tstop.

These cookies are a perfect chocolatey treat for the season with pops of white chocolate and peanut butter and crunchy Reese's Pieces. Without further ado, here goes!



Recipe adapted from here.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Reese's Pieces
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl of a stand mixer, combine the butter and sugars and beat for 3-4 minutes, until light. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.


Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt to the other mixture and mix on low speed, just until combined.

In a separate bowl, combine the Reese's Pieces, white chocolate chips, and peanut butter chips and give them a quick stir so they are evenly distributed. Gently stir or fold in 1 3/4 cups of the chips into the cookie batter, setting the remaining chips aside in reserve.

Scoop approximately 1 tablespoon of cookie dough for each cookie and shape into balls by rolling between the palms of your hands.  Once the dough is shaped, place the balls on the prepared baking sheet 2 inches apart and bake for 8-10 minutes, just until set. Do not overbake.

As soon as the cookies are removed from the oven, press a few of the reserved chocolate and peanut butter chips and eyeball sprinkles into the top of each cookie. It's a total vanity move but adding the extra chips at the end makes the cookies look so pretty and festive. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely and store in an air-tight container.



Enjoy and happy themed baking to you!
