Peanut Butter Chunky Chocolate Cookies

Peanut Butter Chunky Chocolate Cookies

These jumbo cookies delight with big chunks of chocolate in every bite. They’re simple but oh so good.

Peanut Butter

The cookie dough is kissed with creamy peanut butter …

Chocolate Wafers

…and hugged by giant chocolate wafers. Oh my… thighs.

Cookie Dough

I want to go just dive in.

Cookie Dough Scoop

I used a big scoop for these cookies. ?? inches wide that yields 12-13 cookies from the dough. But feel free to use a smaller scoop for more cookies.

Scooped Dough

Look at these great big balls of cookie dough though.

Cookie Scoops

Before baking sprinkle a little sea salt on top to make them taste extra special.

 

Cookies

Oh my … so much melty chocolate.

 

Melty Chocolate

Speaking of melty. If you can’t wait for these to cool like a certain sweets-loving person I know, then be prepared to enjoy puddles of warm chocolate with a tall glass of cold milk.

Peanut Butter Chunky Chocolate Cookies

2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
12-18 oz semisweet chocolate baking wafers (I used these.)
sea salt

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.
  • Whisk flour, baking powder and salt together in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Using a mixer, cream butter, peanut butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs one at a time, mixing until incorporated. Add vanilla.
  • Add flour mixture and slowly mix until combined. Stir in chocolate wafers.
  • Scoop dough using a large 2-1/2 inch scoop (yields 12-13 cookies) a few inches apart onto a parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle the tops lightly with sea salt. Bake 14-16 minutes and let cool.
    Note: For more cookies, use a smaller scoop and bake for a little less time.

Enjoy!!!
