When I read this recipe I could imagine how fudgy and peanut buttery they were just from the picture! And oooo… I was right. They are so good. My family ate them all up. Ok, we do that with all cookies – but these truly are as good as I’d hoped. (Adapted from the Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips package) Makes 4 – 5 dozen.
2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup butter, softened (that’s 2 1/2 sticks)
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups peanut butter chips
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a medium sized bowl mix together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and the salt. Set aside.
In a large or mixer bowl combine butter and sugar til fluffy. Add eggs, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly.
Add the dry cocoa mixture to the egg mixture slowly.
Once combined, add the peanut butter chips and chocolate chips by hand.
Drop the dough onto the cookie sheet by teaspoon fulls.
Bake for approximately 9 minutes.
They will look puffy in the oven and will flatten out as they cool.
Let them rest on the cookie tray for a couple minutes before removing to a wire cooling rack.
I think they’d taste really good if you had a little ice cream to scoop on top of a couple cookies while they are warm and fresh from the oven. Oh, hello midnight snack!
