1 c. butter, softened
1 c. peanut butter
1 1/2 c. white sugar
2 T. molasses
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
2 1/3 c. flour
1/3 c. cocoa flour
1 t. baking soda
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips
1 c. peanut butter chips
1 c. Reese's pieces
1 12oz. mini Reese's cups cut into half and frozen

Unwrap the Peanut butter cups and cut into halves. Place in a bowl and put in the freezer while you make the dough.

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter, peanut butter, sugar, and molasses until smooth, about 3 min. Add vanilla and eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated.

In a separate bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda. Slowly add dry ingredients to the peanut butter mixture. Stir in chocolate chips, peanut butter chips and Reese's pieces.

Drop dough onto cookie sheets (I use parchment paper). Press one or two frozen peanut butter cups onto each dough ball.

Bake for 8-10 minutes.
