Ingredients

  • Dry ingredients:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I use Ghirardelli)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Wet ingredients:
  • 1 cup salted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • For the mix-ins:
  • 14-16 dark chocolate peanut butter cups (I used 7 packages of Justin’s), roughly chopped and divided (about 2 cups chopped peanut butter cups)
  • 1 heaping cup mini marshmallows

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Next add in the egg and vanilla extract; beat again on medium speed until well combined smooth and creamy; about 1 minute longer.
  4. Add in dry ingredients and mix on low until just combined and the dough forms. Next use a wooden spoon to fold in the mini marshmallows and 1 ½ cups of chopped peanut butter cups (reserving ½ cup for topping).
  5. Use a medium cookie scoop to grab about 2 tablespoons of dough, then roll dough balls and place on a cookie sheet, leaving at least 2 inches apart from one another. Top each dough ball with 1-2 of the chopped peanut butter cup pieces; this will help to create a pretty effect so you can see the peanut butter cups and so they get nice and melty on top!
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges begin to set and crackle. Remove and allow cookies to cool for 5-10 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling. Makes 2 dozen cookies.
