My oldest son, Maksen, is a picky picky picky child. There are not many things he likes, but when he finds something that he loves, he wants to eat it all of the time.
One of his favorite candy bars and flavor combinations is Reese’s/chocolate and peanut butter.
While browsing the baking aisle at the commissary I saw a bag of peanut butter chips and KNEW I had to make a chocolate cookie base as the vessel for these scrumptious morsels.
If you love Reese’s flavors, these cookies are for you.
- 10 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 whole egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 6 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup peanut butter chips
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Place butter and sugar in a large bowl and mix on medium speed until fluffy.
2. Add egg and vanilla; beat well.
3. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
4. Add flour mixture to wet ingredients in two increments, beating well. Stir in peanut butter chips.
5. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased or lined baking pan, 2 inches apart.
6. Bake 9 to 10 minutes. Do not over bake, the cookies will be soft. Cool slightly, then remove from cookie sheet onto wire rack to cool completely. Recipe makes roughly 32 cookies.
