Hello, peanut butter lovers. Get out your muffin tin for this scrumptious, beginner-friendly REESE'S Peanut Butter Temptations recipe. These REESE'S Peanut Butter Temptations made inside muffin baking cups start with a sweet cookie made from REESE’S Creamy Peanut Butter. Then, while the cookies are still warm from the oven, a REESE'S Peanut Butter Cup Miniature is placed on top. The cookie holds the peanut butter cup as it cools. Delicious! Bake up these Easy Peanut Butter Temptations for another surprise peanut butter cup treat. It uses a Betty Crocker™ Peanut Butter Cookie Mix to make things even simpler.
Heat oven to 375°F. Remove wrappers from candies. Line small muffin cups (1-3/4 inches in diameter) with paper bake cups.
Beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, peanut butter, egg and vanilla until light and fluffy in large bowl. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add to butter mixture, beating until well blended. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place one in each prepared muffin cup. Do NOT flatten.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes until puffed and lightly browned; remove from oven. Immediately press peanut butter cup or piece onto each cookie. Cool completely in muffin pan.
Place peanut butter cups in freezer about 5 minutes for easier removal of paper cup.
