Peanut Butter Temptations

"Peanut Butter Temptations are Peanut butter cookie dough stuffed with a mini Peanut Butter cup, baked in a mini muffin pan to create a little chocolate peanut butter tart. Perfect for using up leftover Halloween candy!"

Peanut Butter Temptations

Servings – 18 - 3 Dozen Cookies Prep Time – 10 Minutes Cook Time – 10 Minutes Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1/2 cup white sugar

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 36 miniature chocolate covered peanut butter cups, unwrapped


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, cream together the brown sugar, white sugar and butter. Stir in the peanut butter, then the egg and vanilla.

Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt, stir into the peanut butter mixture until the dough comes together.

Shape into 1 inch balls and press them into the cups of an unprepared mini muffin pan.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven.

As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, press a mini chocolate covered peanut butter cup down into the center of each cookie until only the top is showing.

Allow the cookies to cool completely before removing from their pans.


You can also make them if you do not have a mini muffin tin. Roll dough into a 1" ball, roll ball in a little extra sugar and place on cookies sheet 2" apart. They will spread some. Once cookies are removed from the oven, immediately press a peanut butter cup into the center of each cookie. Let cool to set before moving cookies from sheet pan. (see picture options below.)
