- 24 miniature peanut butter cups, unwrapped*
- 1 (16- or 16.5-ounce) package or tube refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough or your favorite homemade cookie dough**
- Optional: flaky sea salt
*Hershey’s Kisses, Wilbur Buds (for locals!), or Rolos may be used in place of the bite-size peanut butter cups. When using Kisses or Wilbur Buds, I like to push the point-side into the cookie.
**My favorite way to make these cookies is with this delicious (and easy!) Flourless Peanut Butter Cookie recipe, which will yield 21 cookies.
**Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Dough is widely available and is sold in the refrigerator section in an orange tube or flat package. The package contains 24 pre-cut squares, which make these cookies even quicker. You may also substitute chocolate chip cookie dough, either store-bought or your favorite homemade recipe. When using homemade dough, roll it into 1-inch balls and note that baking time may vary slightly.
