Readily available ingredients make these cookies easy to make.

INGREDIENTS

I often think the ingredient photos for our COOKIES & SQUARES are the best. Seeing everything laid out in advance always gets my heart racing. These are similar to our recipes for plain but tasty CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES, this OLD-FASHIONED PEANUT BUTTER COOKIE RECIPE and these BROWN BUTTER BLONDIES. What’s not to love about recipes that use butter, sugar, eggs, nuts and chocolate? Notice we’re using granulated sugar instead of brown sugar for this recipe – we wanted cookies with less caramel notes. Gotta love ‘em!

Chocolate and peanut butter chips plus cocoa powder and peanut butter give these cookies lots of flavour.

CHOCOLATE & PEANUT BUTTER

The quartet of cocoa powder, peanut butter, semi-sweet chocolate chips and peanut butter chips is famous for good reason. They’ve been bringing memorable flavours to baked goods for decades. In this case, the hallmark chocolate and peanut butter flavouring is created by blending cocoa powder and either chunky or creamy peanut butter with some dry ingredients, then adding butter, sugar and eggs, respectively. The chocolate and peanut butter chips add additional hits of taste and a nice texture. Don’t use dark chocolate or milk chocolate chips though; the semi-sweet chocolate chips have been matched exactly to the quantity of sugar. Yummy and yummy! 

Make sure to stir the dry mixture together thoroughly so the cocoa flavour is everywhere.

DRY MIX

The dry mix is standard fare and you’ll have no issues using the ingredients already in your pantry. Carol has tried the recipe using gluten-free flour and we’re happy to report the cookies baked off perfectly. This recipe has been crafted to work, and we promise it will!

TAKE A STAND

In trying to keep this recipe easy, straightforward and as foolproof as possible, we’re saying ditch the hand mixer. Making this homemade cookie recipe using a stand mixer is the only way to go. As you watch the VIDEO created for this recipe you might think, “there’s lots of room in the bowl of that stand mixer!” And you know what? You’re correct. That got us thinking… double the recipe! Yup, bake half and freeze the other half for next time. Judging by the way these PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES disappear, we think it’s a brilliant idea.

Your tastebuds will love this salty-sweet flavour mix.

SALTY-SWEET

Our appreciation for the taste bud-pleasing pair of sweet with salty has been proven a few times now. You may remember us trying this trick with our CHOCOLATE ALMOND TOFFEE BARK and our really popular STICKY TOFFEE PUDDING. We just love the way the salt brightens the sweet notes in a recipe and you’ll taste it bite-for-bite in these cookies.

SO COOL

The instructions for this cookie recipe has us transferring the freshly baked cookies to a wire rack to cool. In the video I say “cool completely”, but now I realize I may be denying you the pleasure of enjoying the cookies when they’re still warm. To clarify, it’s important to move them off the hot baking sheet straight away to stop the bottoms from cooking further. After that, just wait until they’re warm to the touch, then enjoy!

Give these cookies a few moments to cool on a wire rack before you dig in.

COOKIEEEEES

Of course all you fellow cookie lovers out there don’t me to tell you how to enjoy these wondrous treats. Whether they’re paired with a tall glass of cold milk, a steaming cup of tea or coffee, maybe it’s just a stack of ‘em, let’s say three or four on their own. Just be prepared, these cookies will rock your world!

Leave the cookies on a wire rack to cool for a bit.
These cookies are even better served with ice cream!

Lastly, some good news and some bad news. Good news; they’re soft and chewy and peanut buttery and chocolatey. The bad news is that the yield of 30 cookies might sound like a lot, but it never is. These cookies will disappear in record time so best to pace yourself!
