Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookies

If you have a chocolate peanut butter craving (like I did this weekend), this is a cookie for you! The brownie-like texture was an added bonus. My mouth is watering just thinking about them now...

Neither the chocolate flavor nor the peanut butter flavor are too overwhelming. If you want to make one flavor stronger, just use one kind of chips. Usually I'm craving peanut butter more, so next time I'm going to mix in choped Reese's peanut butter cups or put a mini peanut butter cup in the center. Maybe even Reese's pieces... Yum!

Are you a chocolate person or a peanut butter person?

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cups sugar
1 egg
1 cup flour
1/3 cup Cocoa
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/8 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Cream butter, peanut butter, and sugar. Add egg and mix. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the butter mixture. Stir in peanut butter chips and milk chocolate chips. 
Drop tablespoons of dough onto a cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes. Cool completely on wire racks.  
Yields 18 cookies.


  1. Gosh, I just hate when you post a recipe and I look at the ingredients and I think "I HAVE all those ingredients, I could make these!" You need to put something unique in there that I DON'T have to keep temptation away!! Have you no heart!!! :-)

    Seriously though, I COULD make these! Tee-hee.

  2. looks chocolaty, i cannot resist chocolate hahaha...

  3. I love both chocolate and peanut butter. I think I'm in Heaven. Thanks.

  4. there's not a much better combo than pb and chocolate!

  5. Sorry to temp you, Debbi :)

    Bee and Simply Life, it looks like you have the same problem as me- not being able to decide between PB and Chocolate. Jess is the only one who can decide!

  6. I love both! And when you put them together, it's magic. :) Those cookies look fabulous- those peanut butter cups would be yummy!

  7. I don't think I could decide between chocolate and peanut butter. Plus they go so well together. These look amazing.
