These are so good! I didn't add the chocolate chips because I knew that would be too much chocolate for my family.

These are awesome. I've made them several ways. Sometimes I add peanut butter chips, sometimes Reece's pieces, sometimes both. They're awesome either way.

Yum! I made these without the chocolate chips, and instead of chopping the Reeses I put the whole candy on top 10 minutes after baking, sending the cookies to the oven again for 2 minutes afterwards. They turned out beautifully!

These cookies are so exceptionally yummy, they're addictive. Just a perfect blend of peanut butter and chocolate in a soft cookie. One bite and you're a kid again, smiling ear to ear. "If you don't make these, I'll come to your house and make them for you." - DV

Five Stars Hands Down. This is a wonderful recipe just tried it today; I would like to add a few tips if anyone is interested. Before you start making the cookies refrigerate your reese cups so they are easier to chop up. Use about 1-1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips that is about 12 ounces and all you need. As well you might want to chop up 8 full size reese cups the extra bit to put on top of the cookies dough before you bake them gives it a nice touch and makes it even more delicious.Another tip I highly recommend is refrigerate your cookie dough for a little over 3 hours this will let you handle the cookie dough better and makes the dough constricted and easier to bake well worth the wait.This batch made me little over 3 dozen cookies if anyone is wondering, I do like a big cookie :)Thanks For the awesome and delicious cookie recipe.

Holy crap those were the BEST cookies and so easy. I'm a great cook but always struggle with cookies. These were GREAT everyone in the family just went crazy over them!! I think I made them too big and had to cook them an extra couple of minutes but they are fabulous.
