These cookies are incredibly easy and they look absolutely gourmet! Perfect for Christmas, which is when I make them. I promise, everyone will Oooh and Ahhh at them!

- 50 bite size reese peanut butter cups (the kind in the foil wrapper)
- 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
Directions See How It's Made
- The reason I did not specify how much sugar cookie dough, is because this recipe makes a million cookies, no matter which sugar cookie recipe you use.
- The amount of cookies you get really depends on how many peanut butter cups you buy.
- Pre-heat oven to 350F degrees.
- Press a small amount of dough on bottom and sides of a mini muffin pan.
- Don't make it too thin or it will be difficult to pop them out.
- Don't make them too thick or the cookie will not be a"bowl".
- It is best to do a practice run with your first batch to see which thickness works best.
- Try a few thicknesses in one pan.
- After you have pressed dough onto the sides and bottom of mini muffin pan, bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.
- While baking, start unwrapping peanut butter cups.
- YOU NEED TO WORK FAST NOW!
- QUICKLY put one peanut butter cup into each sugar cookie bowl.
- After you are done, the chocolate will be slightly melted around the edges.
- Run a knife, or a chopstick (something skinny) around the edge of each peanut butter cup to make the ridges disapear.
- This makes them look much nicer.
- Remove from pan using a butter knife to"pop" them out after they have cooled for about 5 minutes.
- Place cookies on a paper bag.
- When cooled, drizzle with melted semi-sweet chips.
- You can use the sugar cookie bowls for pretty much anything.
- I also fill them with melted chocolate mixed with chopped almonds, drizzled with melted caramel chips.
