  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. In the microwave or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, melt the semisweet chocolate, stirring frequently until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Mix in the melted chocolate and peanut butter. Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and instant pudding mix; gradually blend into the peanut butter mixture. Stir in the oats and chopped peanut butter cups. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

I couldn't believe no one has rated this recipe yet! If you haven't tried them, you have to they're wonderful. I made mine with the smaller cookie scoop so I ended up with around 7 dozen. Great way to use up leftover Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (hate to admit I still had some mini ones left from Christmas) Thank Michelle, these are great!

Came out dry and crumbly. Needed more PB cups

These cookies were out of this world! Very soft and full of peanut butter taste! NOTE: put peanut butter cups in refrigerator overnight for easy chopping and no melting.

Fantastic cookies! A great balance of chocolate and PB, and a wonderful soft but chewy texture. The recipe made over 6 dozen medium cookies, enough to eat now and freeze for later.

very good! I used Reeses bites and only 1/2 the oats. You could probably get away without using oats at all.

YUMMY! These cookies are so good. I wanted to make a big batch of good cookies so that I could give some away to a friend that just had her baby, but still have enough for my family too. These made enough for both of us and where so YUMMY!

i thought these were just okay. they weren't as chocolaty as i thought nor as sweet as most cookies. this recipe made almost 7 dozen cookies. co-workers thought they had a 'light' taste, not too rich. i substituted peanut butter chips for the chopped up PB cups. I probably won't make these again, there are a lot of other recipes on this site that would be more suited to me when i need a PB & chocolate fix.

These cookies were terrible. I was so disappointed in them! They had no flavor, just bland. A waste of ingredients.
