Peanut Butter Whopper Cookies

When I saw this recipe- using the new Peanut Butter Whopper candies- I knew I had to try it! It makes a very soft and very yummy peanut butter cookie! It makes a bunch- so if you only want a few dozen cookies- you might want to cut it in half. For an extra special treat- you can make these into little sandwich cookies using your favorite frosting!

1 cup softened butter

1 cup Peanut Butter

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 t vanilla

2 ½ cup flour

1 ½ t baking soda

1 t baking powder

½ t salt

2 packages (movie sized candy boxes) Peanut Butter Whoppers, coarsely crushed

Granulated sugar for rolling


1 container whipped vanilla frosting (or a homemade frosting of choice)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream the butter, peanut butter, and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla until well combined. Place flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl, stir to combine. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients on low speed, then add whoppers until just combined. Scoop dough with a medium cookie scoop, roll into sugar then place onto a baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until cooked but still soft.

Optional: Stir the frosting in a medium bowl and spread between 2 cookies.
