These cookies bake up to a pillowy perfection. Even though they are decadently delicious the way that they are, you could easily frost these cookies with a chocolate or peanut butter frosting. Or just smear them with some extra peanut butter, because more peanut butter is always a good decision!
Even though this Summer has been a golden one and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying eating my weight in watermelon and peaches, I can’t wait for Fall and Winter to roll around! Call me crazy, but Fall and Winter are my top two favorite seasons of the year! There’s just something about feeling cozy, comfort food and the holidays that make my heart happy. Plus, you don’t get judged for wearing UGG boots and yoga pants everywhere, so that’s basically a best-life circumstance.
Bake up a batch of these Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies and enjoy them any time of the year!
A decadent chocolate cookie swirled together with chocolate chips and gooey peanut butter to make a match made in heaven. You can never go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter if you ask me!
- 2 sticks (16 tablespoons) butter, softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about a couple minutes. Reduce the speed to low and mix in one egg at a time, making sure to wipe down the sides of the bowl in between each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract and peanut butter until smooth.
- With the mixer speed on low, mix in the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt until a dough forms. Gently mix in the chocolate chips.Using a tablespoon-sized scoop, scoop the cookie dough into balls onto a non-greased baking sheet.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies have set in the middle. Let the cookies cool slightly on the baking sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
