Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

These cookies are completely, one-hundred-percent, irresistible, give-you-a-heart-attack goodness.

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter (use adam's chunky)
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/3 cup all-purpose flour (I actually substituted some whole wheat pastry flour)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter chips
10 reeses' peanut butter cups, cut into eights

Cream butter and peanut butter. Add in sugars, beat til creamy, then add in eggs and vanilla and beat until creamy.  Sift together flour, soda, and cocoa.  mix into wet ingredients.  Mix in the goodness (chocolate & peanut butter chips, and pb cups).  Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, although, i've found they need to be cooked about 12 minutes.  They'll still be a little gooey to the touch when they come out of the oven.

Enjoy with a glass of milk!
