Mini Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookie Cups Recipe

Stacey Mebs | Bake.Eat.Repeat.

These easy little chocolate chip peanut butter cookie cups are like thick and chewy little peanut butter cookies studded with mini chocolate chips. An easy cookie dough to make and all you have to do is fill up a mini muffin tin to bake them!

We love peanut butter cookies around here. I think they might just be my favourite kind of cookie.

Especially when you add some chocolate chips to the mix, because really - is there any better combination in the world then peanut butter and chocolate? I think not.

These mini chocolate chip peanut butter cookie cups are basically thick and chewy peanut butter cookies that are easy to mix up and don't need to be chilled before they're baked. So... they're pretty much the perfect cookie in my opinion.

Although, as far as easy to make goes, you probably can't really beat these 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies. Obviously. There's only three ingredients.

But I like options when it comes to my cookie baking.

Even with something as simple as peanut butter cookies. Options are good.

Do you want a classic cross hatched peanut butter cookie, a chewy flourless peanut butter cookie, one with chocolate like these peanut butter brookie cups, or these no bake peanut butter cookie cups, or....the options are endless really.

Which is fantastic, because who doesn't need more peanut butter cookies in their life?

Well, if I'm honest, I probably don't need any more cookies in my life.... but, I know I'm going to keep making them, so options are good.

I think what I like most about these mini chocolate chip peanut butter cookie cups is that you don't need to chill the dough before baking (although I really don't have a lot of cookie recipes where that is necessary since I find it a rather annoying step!) and that they're a little bit different.

Cookies made in a muffin tin are just a nice change, don't you think?

And they're super easy to make and taste great.... so there's that.

Mini Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookie Cups Recipe

    36 Servings


  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter
  • 1 large Egg
  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4 cup Mini Semisweet Chocolate Chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly spray 2 dozen mini muffin cups with cooking spray. Depending on how full you fill them with cookie dough, you may need to spray a few more. Set aside.
  2. Brown the butter. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Once it has melted, whisk constantly while browning. It will melt, then get foamy, then the foam will subside, and brown bits will start forming on the bottom.
  3. Once you see the brown bits, remove the pan from the heat. Continue whisking for another minute, then pour the butter into a small bowl so it doesn’t continue to heat in the saucepan. Make sure to get all the brown bits out of the saucepan. Let cool slightly.
  4. In a large bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk together the egg, brown sugar, granulated sugar, peanut butter and vanilla until combined.
  5. Add the cooled browned butter and mix until smooth.
  6. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix until just combined. Don’t over-mix.
  7. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  8. Fill the mini muffin cups with cookie dough, filling 2/3 to completely full, depending on how big you would like them.
  9. Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until the tops are set and a toothpick inserted in the center of one comes out clean, or just with a few moist crumbs.
  10. Allow the cookies to cool in the pans for at least 15 minutes before removing them or they will break.
  11. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 7 days.
