Ingredients In Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
- Butter- I always use salted because that’s what I have on hand. Use whatever you have, but make sure it is softened!
- Granulated Sugar
- Brown Sugar- The combination of white and brown sugar will create the perfect texture. And the brown sugar will help your cookies stay softer longer.
- Flour- All Purpose flour will do the trick.
- Cocoa- regular unsweetened cocoa is what you’ll need to make these cookies
- Baking Soda
- Peanut Butter Chips- Peanut butter chips can be found on the baking isle of most grocery stores.
How To Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees then in a stand mixer or in a bowl with a hand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix again. Next, add the four, baking soda, cocoa and salt and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix the dough once you have added the flour. Overmixing will dry out your cookies and give them a cakier texture. And finally, fold in the peanut butter chips.
We will use our half cup measuring cup to scoop the dough- yes, 1/2 cup of dough! Scoop and form it into a ball then flatten them slightly. This recipe will create 12 HUGE cookies. If you want smaller cookies you can use less dough for each cookie, but you will need to adjust the cook time.
Arrange 6 huge cookies per cookie sheet, and add a few extra peanut butter chips to the top of each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven when they have spread slightly, look puffed up and are no longer glossy on the top.
Let your cookies cool on the pan for 15 minutes. Cooling on the cookie sheet will allow the insides to finish baking without overcooking the cookie. Serve warm! I actually like them just as good served chilled, though. So I usually eat some warm right out of the oven and then some chilled, too. Balance. 😉
What is Crumbl Cookies?
Crumbl is a cookie company that is popping up all over the country. Fun fact: they are actually the fastest growing cookie brand in the world right now!
They are known for their huge cookies and their rotating menu of weekly flavors. If you have a Crumbl near you and haven’t been, do yourself a favor and try them out!
But if you are like me and try them out to the point where it is straining your budget try my copycats! My Chocolate Oreo, Chocolate Chip and Raspberry Cheesecake are as good or even better than the originals!
How To Store Your Cookies
These cookies will store in an airtight container at room temperature for a few days or in the fridge for a week. Or you could freeze them for up to 3 months!
You can even freeze the cookie dough by rolling out the cookie as if you were going to bake the cookies but instead, put them in a freezer bag and pop them in the freezer. To bake, thaw the dough at room temperature while the oven is preheating. Then just bake them as directed.
