Peanut Butter Chunkers


These cookies are major. Chocolate chunks, peanut butter M&M’s, and creamy peanut butter all wrapped up in a mega, palm-sized cookie. A happy and colorful cookie celebration.



I’ve been obsessed with these peanut butter M&M’s since March when I first found them on shelves in the shape of eggs for Easter. I’m not a big peanut M&M’s fan, but these… I can eat these for days. I almost wish they would stop making them so I would quit buying them. But in case they ever do, find some now and make these cookies.


And go for the chocolate chunks to mix in with them since these cookies are so big. You know, so you get a balanced bite.


Mix some of the candies in the batter, but be sure to save some to press into the tops so they’ll be super colorful when baked.


I used a big 2 1/2 inch ice cream scoop for these, but you can always make more/smaller cookies.


The recipe below makes 12 jumbo cookies.


They’re big and thick and beautiful.
