Soft-baked, thick, and chewy loaded reese’s oatmeal peanut butter cookies loaded with peanut butter chips and 3 different kinds of Reese’s chocolate candy bars! If you love Reese’s and peanut butter then these will be your new favorite!
Oh man, do I have a good one for you all today. These cookies. I don’t even know what to say besides run to the store and grab yourself some peanut butter chips & 3 different kinds of Reese’s chocolate bars and make these! The other ingredients you probably already have; flour, sugar, butter…… or maybe I am the only one that keeps those stocked in bulk at my house. I’m weird like that 🙂
As I mentioned when I made these chocolate stuffed chocolate chip cookies these loaded Reese’s cookies were created as I was aimlessly wandering the aisles of the empty grocery store. You see, I went grocery shopping one night around 11 pm and I am pretty sure I was the only one in the store. I took my sweet time. I get most my crazy ideas when I am alone in the grocery store. I was in the candy aisle and saw all the different varieties of Reese’s ♥ and I knew that I had to create a cookie loaded with Reese’s.
I based these cookies off of my personal favorite cookie (ever!) that’s on the blog. These triple peanut butter monster cookies have been made more times than I can count and it’s a tried and true recipe that I know I can count on.
Are you seeing a theme….. we love peanut butter at our house. Especially peanut butter cookies ♥ !
These cookies have 2 cups of Reese’s mix-ins!! Peanut butter chocolate chips and then 3 other Reese’s candy bar varieties. I just got the fun size packs that cost like $1 for 8 of them. You can find them in the candy aisle.
Choose whatever you want. We love the classic peanut butter cups, and I’m pretty much obsessed with those white reese’s, and then the Fast Breaks just sounded amazing. There you have it. Loaded with Reese’s. And don’t even get me started on the dough….
My kids were fighting over this dough. I’m honestly shocked there was any left to make cookies out of. I know some may be worried about the raw egg but I have been eating cookie dough since I was little so I think it’s ok. Plus, I don’t know of a single person that could resist this dough. If you can then you’re pretty much a superhero in my book 🙂
Each cookie is 1/4 cup of dough so you’re left with a good-sized cookie. Super thick, chewy, and soft-baked cookie loaded with yummy bits of Reese’s chocolate all over.
These cookies also freeze really well. Put one or two in a sandwich size Ziploc bag and place in the fridge. Either microwave it for 20-30 seconds or leave it out on the counter. I surprised my son and put one of these in his lunch box. By the time lunch came around at school the cookie was thawed.
Speaking of my son. He’s growing inches every single day and eating us all out of the house. He was responsible for eating all but 4 cookies from this batch. I am pretty sure he would wait until I was busy feeding he baby and then go to the freezer and help himself to a cookie, or 3 or 4 .
Phew! That was a long post and lot’s of pictures. If you stuck through it with me then hopefully by now you really want one of these. I wish I could mail you each one. Just take my advice and go make these 🙂 You won’t regret it!
Soft-baked, thick, and chewy loaded reese's oatmeal peanut butter cookies loaded with peanut butter chips and 3 different kinds of Reese's chocolate candy bars! If you love Reese's and peanut butter then these will be your new favorite!
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon (a pinch) of salt
- 1 1/2 cups quick oats
- 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
- 1 1/2 cups chopped Reese's candy bars
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper or a silpat.
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and peanut butter with a hand mixer or stand mixer until light in color and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.
- Mix in the egg and vanilla, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
- Add the flour, baking soda, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, oats and stir by hand to combine all together.
- Stir in peanut butter chips and chopped up Reese's candy bars.
- Use a 1/4 cup measurer to measure out the cookies. Roll into a ball and place them on the baking sheet. Gently press down dough balls to form a very thick, cookie shape. They will not spread much while baking.
- Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes until the edges are just starting to brown and the top still looks slightly undercooked.
- Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet before moving them to a wire rack to cool completely.
These cookies will look slightly undercooked when you take them out of the oven. That's ok. I have never had to bake mine for longer than 10 minutes.
You want 2 cups total of mix-ins. I love using peanut butter chips + 3 different Reese's candy bars. 1/2 cup of each to equal the 2 cups mix-ins.
Place leftovers in a Ziploc bag and put in the freezer. They freeze really well.
You can use old-fashioned regular oats in these if you don't have quick oats. I prefer the texture of the quick oats but it's up to you.
