Chocolate Peanut Buttercup Cookies

Recipe from the kitchen of Heather Czarny.  During the summer of 2010, my sister Chelsey kept telling my friend Heather not to come over unless she brought these cookies. We had them for the first time at my softball banquet freshman year (2004). Finally, with less than a week of summer left, Heather came over and we made Chelsey the cookies she has been waiting for. They were worth the wait.

1 C. Hershey’s semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 squares unsweetened baking chocolate
1 C. sugar
1/2 C. Crisco
2 eggs
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 C. + 2 Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
36 Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
1 C. Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips
