So if any two flavors were a match made in heaven, it HAS to be chocolate and peanut butter, right? I mean, even E.T. loved Reese’s Pieces and he was from an entirely different planet.

While these cookies would be delicious any time of year, they make awesome fall cookies because you can use this recipe with your leftover Halloween candy. You can throw in some M&M’s or Kit Kat pieces and they’ll be just as yummy!

Technically, you don’t even need to stuff them. That’s why I love this recipe…there are so many different ways to make it. However, we all know that everything tastes better with frosting so stuffing these chocolate peanut butter cookies definitely takes things to a whole new level!
