  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup shortening
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ cups mini chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 16 Reese’s cups


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray it. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the brown sugar, white sugar, butter, and shortening. Beat on medium-high speed for 3 minutes until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla until incorporated.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, beating on medium-low speed just until the flour is incorporated. Fold in the mini chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  5. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out a ball of cookie dough. Place it in the palm of your hand and shape it into a bowl shape.
  6. Press a Reese’s cup, face down, into the center of the dough and fold the cookie dough over it, pinching the edges together.
  7. Place the cookie, face down, onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat this process until all the cookie dough is used. You can fit about 6 cookies onto the baking sheet, as they don’t spread much while baking.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-22 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies begin to slightly brown and the centers are baked.
  9. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tips for Perfect Cookies:

  • Room Temperature Ingredients: Ensure that your butter and eggs are at room temperature before starting. This helps to create a smoother batter and evenly cooked cookies.
  • Consistent Size: Use a cookie scoop for uniform cookies. This not only helps in even baking but also ensures each cookie has its fair share of Reese’s goodness.

Variations and Additions:

  • Different Chocolate Chips: Feel free to experiment with various types of chocolate chips like dark chocolate, white chocolate, or even peanut butter chips to add a twist to your cookies.
  • Nutty Addition: Add chopped nuts like peanuts or almonds for an added crunch and flavor boost, complementing the Reese’s cups beautifully.


  1. Can I make the dough in advance? Yes, the cookie dough can be refrigerated for up to 48 hours before baking. Just let it sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before shaping and baking.
  2. How do I store these cookies? Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
  3. Can I use homemade peanut butter cups? Absolutely! Homemade peanut butter cups can be a delicious and personal touch to the recipe.
  4. Can I make these cookies gluten-free? Yes, you can use a gluten-free flour blend in place of regular flour to make these cookies gluten-free.
