These bite-sized treats taste great and are a breeze for you and your kids to make. Who knew chocolate and peanut butter could get even better?


¾ cup 175mL butter, softened
½ cup 125mL granulated sugar
½ cup 125mL packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp 5mL vanilla extract
2 cups 500mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
½ tsp 2mL baking powder
½ tsp 2mL baking soda
¼ tsp 1mL salt
24 mini chocolate peanut butter cups


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly grease mini-muffin pan or line with paper liners.
  2. Cream butter and sugars in grand bol mélangeur. Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
  3. Tip

    Have your kids pack the brown sugar into the measuring cup. Even though it looks full, they can probably fit in a little more.

  4. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt to butter mixture and mix until incorporated.
  5. Shape 1 tbsp (15mL) dough into a round ball. Place in prepared pans.
  6. Tip

    Let your kids get their hands a little messy while learning how to measure. Have them press the dough into a 1 tbsp. (15mL) measuring spoon before rolling it into balls.

  7. Bake in preheated oven for 14 minutes or just until lightly browned. Remove from oven and immediately make wells in the center of each one by pressing down with a melon scoop or small spoon. Press chocolate peanut butter cup into well. Let cups cool completely in pan until chocolate is solid.
  8. Tip

    Get your kids to put the finishing touch on your cookies by pressing in the chocolate peanut butter cups.
