- 2 sticks butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup orange colored vanilla chips (seasonal)
- 36 mini peanut butter cups
- 72 mini sugar eyes
- Chocolate icing, for piping legs and sticking eyes
Preheat oven to 350°F.
For the cookies: In a large bowl, using an immersion blender, cream together butter and both sugars until combined. Add two eggs and vanilla. Once completely combined, add baking soda and salt then add flour a little at a time. Scrape down sides of the bowl and mix one last time before folding in both chips.
On a parchment-lined sheet pan, use a cookie dropper to scoop 12 cookies on the sheet. Bake for 7-9 minutes.
As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, press a peanut butter cup (top down) into the center of each cookie; let cool. Once cookie is cool, pipe on legs and stick on eyes.
