#3578 - Mini Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup Domino's dark brown sugar (packed)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup butter (melted)
1/4 cup Jif smooth peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
2 TBSP water
2 cups Reese's minis peanut butter cups (1 1/2 cups for the batter; 1/2 cup for topping)

In a bowl add flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt--stir with a whisk to mix. In a mixer add brown sugar, white sugar and melted butter--beat. Add peanut butter--beat. Add egg, vanilla and water--beat. Slowly add flour mixture--beat (batter will be thick). Remove bowl from mixer--add 1 1/2 cups of the mini peanut butter cups--stir with a wooden spoon. Drop batter by spoonfuls on to greased cookie sheets. Press two mini peanut butter cups into each dough ball (in case some of the batter doesn't have enough mini peanut butter cups). Use a spoon to slightly flatten each dough ball. Bake at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes.
