Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Cake Recipe

    Ingredients:

    For the Cookie Dough:

    • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 cup packed brown sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup creamy peanut butter

    For the Topping:

    • 1 1/2 cups mini peanut butter cups, halved
    • 1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
    • 1/2 cup chopped roasted peanuts

    Instructions:

    Preheat the Oven:

    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 12-inch round cake pan or pizza pan.

    Prepare the Cookie Dough:

    In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

    Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add this dry mixture to the wet mixture, mixing until well combined.

    Fold in the creamy peanut butter until evenly distributed throughout the cookie dough.

    Assemble the Cookie Cake:

    Press the cookie dough evenly into the prepared cake pan, creating a smooth and uniform surface.

    Sprinkle the halved mini peanut butter cups, chocolate chips, and chopped peanuts over the top of the cookie dough, pressing them lightly into the surface.

    Bake:

    Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are golden brown, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs (not wet batter).

    Cool and Serve:

    Allow the peanut butter cup cookie cake to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes, then transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

    Optional: Drizzle with Chocolate:

    Melt some additional chocolate chips and drizzle over the cooled cookie cake for an extra chocolatey touch.

    Slice and Enjoy:

    Once completely cooled, slice the peanut butter cup cookie cake into wedges or squares.

    Serve and enjoy this delightful treat!
