  • 1 1/2 Sticks Butter, Melted and Cooled Slightly
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Large Whole Egg
  • 1 Large Egg Yolk
  • 2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 2 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 Cup Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 3/4 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 6-8 Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Hearts, Unwrapped


  • Preheat oven to 325°.
  • In a large bowl, cream together melted butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar for one minute.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together egg, egg yolk and vanilla. Add egg mixture to sugar mixture and mix well.
  • Stir in baking soda, salt and flour and mix until half of the flour is incorporated.
  • Mix in chocolate chips and combine dough just until all the flour is incorporated.  
  • Place onto a large pizza pan and press into a heart shape.  Your dough should be about 1/2" thick.  
  • Make the heart pretty exaggerated so when it bakes it will make the perfect heart.  
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or just until the edges are slightly golden brown and the center top is no longer glistening.  
  • Remove and immediately press peanut butter cup hearts onto the top.  You can also press in a few chocolate chips as well.  
  • Let it cool for 20 minutes before serving.
