Fudgy, chewy double chocolate cookies loaded with Reese’s Pieces! Chocolate peanut butter perfection 🙂

I have to admit, I feel a little weird sharing these.

I’m kind of a planner. Okay, so I’m kind of obsessing about planning things out in advance. I have my editorial calendar planned out 1-2 months in advance and I don’t do things last minute. I rarely share something here just because I happened to make it.

Most of the time, I come up with the ideas I want to try out, and test them, and spend hours photographing and editing photos before you see them here. I don’t just “wing it”.

And since this recipe is based off of my Mom’s Double Chocolate Cookies, I suppose I’m not really “winging it”, but it’s definitely not a recipe I planned to share or even planned to photograph (notice how my Reese’s Pieces are all over the place?? Definitely not strategically placed! 😉 ).

And no, they’re not Eastery, or Springy, or carrot or lemon or pastel, but they’re pretty darn good.

Calories 175cal


  • 1 cup butter room temperature
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup Reese’s Pieces


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper (optional).
  • Cream together butter and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Add vanilla and eggs and combine.
  • Add flour, baking soda, cocoa, and salt and beat until a dough forms (it should hold together easily but be dry enough that you can roll into balls without coating your hands, but not crumbly). Stir in chocolate chips and Reese’s Pieces.
  • Roll into 1″ balls and place about 2″ apart on prepared baking sheets (you can make larger cookies, but you’ll need to be fewer to a pan and bake a little longer). Bake for 8-9 minutes until centers are just set or only a tiny bit glossy in the center — they will set as they cool.

    I made these for a party at work and they turned out great! A bit sweet honestly but there were only 2 cookies left by the end of the party which speaks for itself!

  2. Kelly says

    Haha love that you shared these cookies on a whim! Chocolate and peanut butter make the best combo! I’ll take a dozen please 🙂

  3. Zainab says

    Hahha I wish I was that much of a planner. I do plan a few weeks ahead with ideas but every now and then I get inspired and throw something together on the whim..which most times are the most popular on the blog. I am glad you shared these cookies…my PB and chocolate loving husband will love them.

  4. Ami@NaiveCookCooks says

    That’s so awesome Ashley. I have been myself planning to do all this since we will be going on a 10 day trip in May but somedays it just get’s so hard! Kudos to you girl for sticking to your routine and these cookies look so good!!

  5. Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary says

    Sometimes the best things in life aren’t planned! And i’m so glad you are “winging it” and sharing these cookies anyways, because they look seriously delish, Ashley! WAY too good to keep all to yourself! Chocolate and peanut butter perfection up in here! I’ll take a few dozen, dear! 😉 Pinned! Cheers!

  6. Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says

    I’m the EXACT same way as you! I have most of my recipes completed through the end of May and usually only share things at the last minute due to sponsored content, etc. But, I would definitely make an exception for these, too! Love the double chocolate and peanut butter in here!

    • Ashley Fehr says

      Haha! It is a little crazy, isn’t it?? You are even further ahead than me! But I am SO excited to start making Spring and Summer recipes that I won’t be far behind 😉 Thanks Gayle!
