One of my husband’s favorite cookies growing up were the simple refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough cookies. You take a TBSP of the cookie dough and place it in a mini muffin tin, bake, then press a Reese’s PB cup mini into the hot cookie. Voila. Dessert. To this day those are still one of his favorite cookies.

I knew I wanted to make a fun Halloween treat (I was on a roll with these Butterfinger Frankenstein Cupcakes and these Spooky Eyeball Cake Balls). Of course I had no refrigerated cookie dough on hand (do people keep rolls of this on hand??). So I did the next best thing. I made the EASIEST peanut butter cookie dough with only three ingredients. You may remember this cookie dough from these Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies.

A few tips about making these Halloween Peanut Butter Cookie Cups:

  • One batch makes 24 cookie cups. You decide if that’s enough, and adjust the candy and toppings accordingly!
  • I used my favorite non-stick mini muffin tin and sprayed it with baking spray. You can also grease your pan if you have no baking spray!
  • Have all your candy unwrapped so you can press them into your cookie cups immediately when taking them out of the oven! Allow the cookie cups to sit in the pan for about 10 minutes, then use a butter knife and they should POP right out!
  • For the mummy: you can use either white chocolate peanut butter cups or marshmallows (for a fun fluffernutter treat). Use melted white chocolate and drizzle it on the cookie to create the scraps of cloth! Don’t forget the candy eyes!
  • For the spider: you can use either a peanut butter cup or a rolo for these fun treats. Then press your candy eyes on top and use melted chocolate to create the legs!
  • For the bloody eyeballs, you can use either a white chocolate peanut butter cup or marshmallow. Then use red gel to create the bloodshot look and the big candy eyes!
  • ENJOY
