Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

1 cup butter, softened

3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

3/4 cup white sugar

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup peanut butter chips

1 (6oz) pkg. chocolate covered peanut butter cups, cut into eights (Reese's peanut butter cups cut up chunky)

Preheat over to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa and baking soda. Stir into the peanut mixture. Mix in the chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and peanut butter cups. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. (Or, you could roll them into balls if you prefer a more uniform look.)
Bake for 13 minutes and then remove from oven and allow cookies to rest on cookie sheet for an additional five minutes before removing them. Enjoy!

***I also didn't put in the Reese's peanut butter cups this time because I was trying to cut back slightly on the intensity of the flavor. They still tasted awesome!

Oops! You bake them for 13 minutes and then let them set on the pan for 5 minutes to cool.
