Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Last night my husband was thrilled to come home from work and see I had made even more cookies; Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies. This is a recipe I've been making for about 15 or 20 years but I change the chips in them, using whatever I have on hand. Sometimes mini M&M's, other times chocolate chips, toffee chips, white chocolate chips... anything you want! Last night it was peanut butter chips. Yum! I didn't take a new photo of the cookies last night as I've already photographed them a number of times over the years. Here is a picture of them from my files from a few years ago to show you how they look.

Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

1 c real butter
2 c sugar
2 eggs
2 t vanilla
2 c flour
3/4 c cocoa
1 baking soda
1/2 t salt
2 c peanut butter chips

Cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Don't over mix. Add the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt all at once and slowly start the beater to mix it in together. Stir in the chips. Drop by tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes. They will be puffy and moist when they come out of the oven. Let them set for 1-2 minutes, remove from the pan to cool completely. They will flatten as they cool. If you like a crisp cookie, bake them 1-2 minutes longer.Print Friendly and PDF
