Reese’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites! You only need TWO ingredients and they take 15 minutes start to finish. World’s easiest dessert!

You all know me…. I like easy recipes. Well, this one takes the cake… or the cookie (sorry, couldn’t resist!). Reese’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites – OMG you seriously only need TWO items and they take 10 minutes start to finish – I kid you not!!

Do you love quick and easy recipes like me- then these Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites are going to be your new BFF?

The combination of chocolate and peanut butter is a personal favorite, but stick it in a warm and chewy chocolate chip cookie and this dessert takes a leap to epic level proportions!

It never fails, my kids tell me minutes before they are having a group of kids come over or that they need something for their bake sale at 8 PM the night before!

So, what do you do? Well, I have a couple of tricks up my sleeve for exactly this occasion.

One of my go-to cookie recipes, when I am in a pinch, is our 3-ingredient cake mix cookies! These will literally be ready in under 15 minutes!

But, if you are looking to take your cookie hacks to the next level, I will tell you a little secret… I keep a container of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough and a bag of Reese’s Bite-Sized Peanut Butter Cups in case of a dessert emergency! These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites will be the best seller at your next bake sale!!

Looking for another great chocolate peanut butter cookie? Our soft and chewy, Peanut Butter Blossom Cookies (aka Hershey Kiss Cookies) are the perfect treat to satisfy your chocolate peanut butter fix! 

More in a brownie mood? Our Peanut Butter Brownies are soft and chewy and swirled with creamy peanut butter! 

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and Pre Made Cookie Dough

That’s right – we have all had dessert emergencies, but if you keep these two items with you at all times, you will always be prepared for that dreaded occasion.

How did I learn about this “always be prepared for dessert” hack?

So the other night we went out to dinner with our friends, Danny & Sherrie. We decided to go back to their house for dessert – Sherrie said she could whip something up.

Reese's Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites

We told her we didn’t want her to go through the trouble, we could just grab something on the way – she swore to us it really wasn’t any trouble.

So when Sherrie pulled these Reese’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites out of the oven I begged her for the recipe!

When she told me the recipe I couldn’t believe it -not to mention my recent obsession with bite-sized anything!!! (When they are bite-sized the calories don’t actually count – true story!!)

I get asked all the time what kind of mini muffin pan I use because my cups pop out so easily. I live for anything silicon and this is the muffin pan I use!

  1. Jenn,

    Anything that includes chocolate chip cookie dough is my favorite, especially if it also includes a Reese’s. YUM! YUM!
    Thanks for this great recipe!

  2. This is sooo crazy simple!! I love it. I can’t wait to make it for Sunday dinner, Thanks!

  3. I’m so disappointed.. I followed the directions but they fell apart when I tried taking them out of the muffin pan. I tried it in an ungreased pan and a greased pan. They both fell apart.

    1. OH NO Janine – I literally just made them and I had no issue! I am so so sorry!!!!!
      Try adding some more cookie dough next time and maybe cookie them a little longer. Also, wait until they are totally cool. And…. maybe run a knife around the edge before you pop them out.

    2. Also – someone else told me they had a similar issue and they got a silicon muffin pan and they worked fine.

      1. Oh no Linda! I am so so sorry!!! Did you use a silicon mold? Other’s have said that works well. Mine pop right out of a regular pan. I am super sorry for the mess!

    3. I was just reading your post about them falling apart, and it came to my mind, to use the little cupcake papers if they are falling apart, then all you have to do is peel the cupcake paper away, like you would with, mini cupcakes, and big ones as well. When everyone was saying they were falling apart, I thought oh my the way I have trouble baking any how, I had better use them for sure. Good Luck 🍀 I will be back with My posts over the weekend.

      1. Thanks so much, Jacqueline! Great suggestion! Honestly, they have never fallen apart for me. I have tried them in both mini muffin trays and silicone mini muffin trays. The key is making sure you really grease the cups and if you are using a regular muffin pan, make sure it is very clean. The older pans tend to stick more often! Hope they work well for you (grease that pan!!)

  4. I tried to do these about 10 years ago and they stuck to the mini muffin pan. I did not have the silicone pan….So would you lightly spray the pan with no-stick spray?

    1. I’m just now finding your page, off a friends page, I’m not a big baker, but I do like to bake, so these 15 minute 2 ingredient bakes are perfect for me. I’m going to thank you now, just for the little time and simple bakes, I have to go out tomorrow, so I will look around tonight for a few simple easy bakes, and the things I will need to pick up at the store to do some baking over the weekend. I’m looking forward to it too. I will be back in touch, to let you know how things go for me, have a great evening. jac

  5. You say a spoonful of the dough, are we talking tsp or tbsp? The picture looks like tbsp, but I just want to be sure.
