Betty demonstrates how to make Reeses Pieces Chocolate Cookies. These cookies are made with Dutch process cocoa, and they contain candy-coated peanut butter bites. They are terrific for Halloween!


All purpose flour
Dutch process cocoa 2/3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
Butter 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , softened
Firmly packed brown sugar 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
White granulated sugar 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Kosher salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Baking soda 1/2 Teaspoon
Baking powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Vanilla extract 2 Teaspoon
Egg 1
Candy 10 Ounce



In a small bowl, stir together flour and cocoa. Set aside. 

In a large bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar, white sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and vanilla, using an electric mixer on low to medium speed. 

Beat in egg, scraping down bowl, as needed. Stir in cocoa-flour mixture. 

Fold in all of the Reese’s Pieces, except for ½ cup. 

With a large cookie scoop (about 2 ½ tablespoons), drop approximately 16 scoops of dough on lightly greased baking sheet (or baking sheet lined with a silicone pad). 

Gently flatten the cookies with the bottom of a drinking glass, then decorate with reserved ½ cup of Reese’s Pieces. 

Bake at 350 degrees (F) for about 8 minutes. 

Cool in pan for about 10 minutes on a cooling rack, then loosen with a metal spatula. 


Let cool, as desired, then place on a nice plate for serving.
