  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup good quality smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 mini peanut butter cups unwrapped
  • 1/2 cup Cocoa PEBBLES™
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, crushed


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk to combine. Set aside.
  3. Combine sugar, peanut butter, and butter in a large bowl. Beat with a stand mixer or electric mixer on medium speed. Add egg, heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract. Gradually add dry ingredients 1/2 cup at a time. Continue to beat on low speed until all ingredients have combined.
  4. Scoop 2 tablespoons of cookie mixture on the palm of your hand and shape into a ball. Lightly flatten into a 1/2-inch disc and place in muffin tin mold. Continue until all muffin cups have been filled.
  5. Bake for 12 minutes. Immediately press 1 peanut butter cup in the center of each cookie cup and top with 2 teaspoons of PEBBLES™ and a sprinkle of crushed almonds.
  6. Return mold to oven and bake for 5-7 minutes more. Remove from oven. Let cool in mold for 15 minutes. Carefully remove each cookie cup from each mold. Serve and enjoy.
