Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Cookies

These Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Cookies may just be my favorite cookie ever.  They are so chocolaty, so chewy—just like my favorite brownie.  Add in Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Mini’s and peanuts, and they get even better.  The cookies have both unsweetened chocolate and cocoa powder, so they are extra chocolaty.  And unlike some of the other chocolate cookies I have tried, these are so soft and chewy inside.
