Week 21~ Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

double chocolate peanut butter 2

Week 21!!! Crazy! I have been baking cookies in quarantine for 10 weeks! This week we all needed a little pick me up and these cookies were just the thing to do it. I don’t use peanut butter a ton in baked goods, but when I do I forget how much I like it. The same thing happens with peanut butter ripple ice cream. I never buy it, but if I decide to get it, I am in heaven. That’s what these cookies did for me. A little slice of heaven whilst surrounded by demanding children who I have not been apart from in 10 weeks!!! Whenever I had one they just gave me a little pick me up and it was totally the peanut butter chips. As I write this, I know there is a bag of these cookies in the freezer taunting me, excuse me while I give in to temptation and find a closet to hide in away from my children. Until next week!

Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients…

  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter chips*
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

What to do…

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl stir together flour, salt, and baking soda.  Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, or a large bowl if using a hand mixer, combine butter and both sugars until light and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs, vanilla and cocoa and mix until combined.
  5. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture and mix until combined.
  6. Stir in peanut butter and chocolate chips.
  7. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls (I used a small cookie scoop) onto parchment paper lined baking sheets.
  8. Bake 10 minutes.
  9. Transfer cookies to a baking rack to cool.

*I had a 10 ounce bag of peanut butter chips and was left with about a quarter cup, if you want to have more peanut butter in your cookies use the whole 10 ounce bag.
