Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips…do I even need to write anything else? Seriously, I have said it many times…I am not a huge chocolate fan, but when chocolate is paired with peanut butter…I am all over it! These cookies caught my eye while browsing and now my cookie recipe rotation will never be the same again!

Yup folks, this is a winner, a real winner they are chocolatey, soft and all kinds of delicious! Brian rated them a 10, but he rates most chocolate based cookies a 10 (I truly don’t even know why I bother to ask anymore)…I rate them a 7, but they may teeter on an 8 fresh outta the oven when they are all hot and gooey!

So, if ya have a midweek hankering for something full of chocolatey goodness, get into your kitchen and whip these together tonight!

Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Yield: 36 cookies


1 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy will work just fine)
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups peanut butter chips


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugar. Once the butter and sugar are well combined, stir in the eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, fold in the peanut butter chips.

3. Drop cookies by heaping teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.

4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until set. Cool on wire racks.


- If you’re like me, eat one that’s fresh out of the oven… all piping hot and full of gooey goodness.

    Great idea. I usually make PB cookies with choco chips. This reverse sounds wonderful.

    I ADORE your photos. That last shot is amazing. The cookies look great, too!! YUMMY!

    Perfect combo in a cookie!


  6. Jelli Bean — January 13, 2010 at 8:16 am

    Mmm! There isn't much more to say than that. My favorite combo, in cookie form. Yesterday, I wiped out the end of my Christmas Reese cups. Looks like now I'll have a new snack. Thanks!

    I'm totally with you! I'm not a big chocolate fan…but a chocolate PB cookie is one of my all-time faves! The cookies look great!

    Ah yes – chocolate and PB. A match made in flavor HEAVEN. These look absolutely wonderful.

    Those look ridiculously good.

    Nothing quite hits the spot like peanut butter and chocolate, and this looks oh so tempting! I'm going to conveniently forget that I've been consciously cutting down on my sugar intake, and hunt for peanut butter chips in the supermarket tomorrow!

    Oh man these look and sound delish! Your photos are fabulous!

    oh my goodness, I am drooling! I am going to try this one for sure.

    Chocolate + PB = perfection.


  14. Sam Kathryn — January 15, 2010 at 8:18 am

    Chocolate and pb!! Good work :)


  15. CaSaundraLeigh — January 17, 2010 at 9:06 am

    Nothing hits the spot better than a chocolate and PB combo! I would have to say my favorite of the two would be in ice cream form though, but these cookies might steal the show :-)

    Delicious! I gotta agree about the lovely combination of peanut butter and chocolate…it's the best! I guess that is why I love buckeyes so much :)


  17. Laura L. — January 26, 2010 at 3:23 pm

    I made these. Gosh, so delicious! At first I thought, “What am I going to do with 3 dozen cookies?!” but they went FAST. So, so good. Thanks for the recipe!

    Made these on Sunday and they were gone in two days. Everyone loved these! Thanks for sharing!

    I didn’t have PB chips, but I used white and semi sweet swirl chips and Ghiradelli cocoa powder. OMG these were so decadent! YUMM! I’m bringing them to a friend who will be having surgery soon. These will be a huge hit!! :) Great recipe! Can’t wait to buy some PB chips to try them again!!


  20. Zahra Qureshi — May 28, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    I made these twice and they came out amazinggg! thank you so much for the recipe. I was out of PB chips so put in white choc chips instead and they rocked :) however, mine were a little soft, are they supposed to be soft or crunchy?


  21. ej — January 6, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    I’m not seeing when to add the PB in the directions. I guess I’ll just add it with the eggs and vanilla?


    • Jamie — January 6, 2012 at 9:04 pm

      That was an error – sorry about that! Just add it in with the butter and sugar. Happy Baking!

    My Youth Group kids go bonkers for these cookies! I would rate them a 9 when they are fresh out of the oven with a cold glass of milk! Yum.


    • Jamie — March 16, 2016 at 7:13 am

      I’m so glad your youth group kids enjoy these, Marcy! I love them with milk, too!
