Once the mixture was smooth I added in some eggs and vanilla.

Then I gradually added in some flour along with some baking powder and salt.

When the cookie dough was ready I pressed it into a greased muffin tin forming the dough into cups.

I greased my muffin tin with Pam Spray For Baking.

I use this cooking spray for pretty much everything because I find it way less greasy than other sprays and also very effective.

I’ve never had trouble removing anything from a pan when using this spray.

I baked the cookies until they were just starting to brown around the edges.

Then I removed them from the oven and placed one caramel into the center of each cookie cup pressing down gently.

I placed two regular mini peanut butter cups and two white chocolate mini peanut butter cups into each cookie cup and sprinkled a few roasted peanuts on top.

I returned the cookies to the oven to finish baking.

When the cookies were done baking I allowed them to cool for about fifteen minutes before removing them from the pan.

This is the most annoyed I have ever been baking cookies. The dough is too soft, rises too much and the end result is definitely NOT worth all the glitches on this website. I must have had to reload the page 10 times.
