Cookies are always a big hit in my house just like Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. So I thought why not combine both of our favorites. Having tried other Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookie recipes before but never really finding one that I liked. Just about all the recipes I tried all tasted dry to me. Giving this some thought as to why they were dry I came up with the recipes were using baking cocoa, why not try some type of melted chocolate. I have a really good Chocolate chip recipe so I thought I could play around with that recipe to make a chocolate peanut butter chip cookies.
How To Melt Chocolate
To get a rich chocolate flavor I melted dark chocolate chips in a double boiler. You can place chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat up until melted that way. To be honest with you I have never had much luck, I forget about it or overheat the chocolate. We all know that if the chocolate gets overheated there is no coming back from that. That’s why I thought doing a double boiler would work best for me.
Easy Cookie Dough Recipe
Starting the recipe like I normally do. I adding room temperature butter into my kitchen aid mixer along with brown sugar, and white sugar. Taking the melted dark chips I added it to the mixture. Since the chocolate is warm I thought it would be best to add this in before the eggs. Getting all the ingredients mixed together I added the eggs and vanilla. Turning the mixer to medium speed to combine all ingredients.
In a separate bowl, I sifted flour, baking soda, and salt together. Turning my mixer to low I slowly started to add the flour mixer into the batter until it was all added. With all the ingredients mixed together, I removed the mixing bowl. Using a rubber spatula to scrape the inside of the bowl first then to mix in the peanut butter chips.
To make the perfect shaped cookies every time I use a 2-ounce ice cream scoop. You can use whatever you prefer, but the baking time and amount of cookies will vary. Placing the cookie dough onto a prepared cookie sheet then into a 375℉ oven for 17-19 minutes; or until done.
I hope you enjoyed these delicious chocolate peanut butter chip cookies ~ Jenny
