Triple Peanut Butter Cookies

Chewy peanut butter cookies loaded with peanut butter chips and candies are a peanut butter enthusiasts dream come true. These things get gobbled up quickly, so be sure to hide a few for yourself!

      These simple drop cookies are absolutely loaded with peanut butter goodness. Peanut butter dough, chips and Reese's Pieces make them triple the peanut butter! So get your glass of milk ready, you are not going to want to have to wait to dig in!

     I just love a party!  Any excuse to get everyone together and have a good meal is a perfect one for me.

      This time of year it is especially fun to have all of our friends and family over.  We love playing yard games and chasing little ones around outside.

    We are able to invite so many more people and still have plenty of elbow room.  Plus, I love the casual nature of a good outdoor BBQ.

    For big parties, I tend to like to plan the whole menu.  Now that the weather has warmed up though, we are much more likely to throw out a last minute invite.

    Then it is fun to throw some meat on the grill and invite our guests to each bring a side.  I enjoy seeing what people think to bring and it takes a lot of the pressure off.

    Another great bonus is picky eaters have the chance to bring something they know they will like.  Not that we know any of those. 😉

    Of course we love getting invited to pot lucks too!  My brain automatically goes to cookies.

     They are perfect for so many reasons.  First... they are cookies!  I mean, really.  That should be enough.

     Second, they are good at any temperature.  No worries about keeping something hot or cold.  Woohoo, that's a load off, right?

    Thirdly, they are so easy to grab on the go between games of bags and washers.  Plus they travel well if the party is not at home.

I'm sure I could keep going, but I think I've already made my case! 😉

     I was in the mood for some big peanut buttery cookies.  I wanted them to be FULL of peanut butter.

    So I made peanut butter dough, but that wasn't enough.  I needed more!

    So I stirred in some peanut butter chips.  But there needed to be more!

   Some Reese's Pieces filled the void.   Then I scooped out big rounded balls of dough and made perfectly large cookies.

    I made a few regular sized ones too, in case we had people who couldn't commit to a big one.

      I whipped up a triple batch.  I served some at Little Dude's birthday party and froze the rest to share with my coworkers.  Some people at the party did try to use portion control and picked a small cookie, I think every single one of them went back for a second cookie.

     I brought a gallon bag packed full of cookies to work and I think they were gone in  a couple of hours!  So, I would say they were a hit.

    They would be a perfect item to bring to your next potluck or party. They would also be a fun after school snack for your kiddos if they deserve an extra special treat.

      Another bonus to making cookies is they freeze well. Freeze extra bakes cookie and pull some out whenever you want a treat.

     Alternatively you can freeze balls of dough and bake them as you need them. Then you get the bonus smell of fresh baked cookies at a moment's notice. Bake them from frozen and just add a minute or two to the bake time.

     What are your favorite cookies to make for a party?
