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 that yielding 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.



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.

  1. WOW, this is the type of biscuit (this is what we Aussies call them) recipe I have been searching for, for a very long time. They are thick and delicious. I felt unsure about adding so many chocolate wafers and only added around a cup full. Gee was I wrong. I want to make these again and include all the chocolate your recipe indicated. To be honest my teenage kids made them and I gobbled them up. Yum.

  2. Chocolate and peanut butter are my favorite!

  10. Oh, they look so good! You WOULD have to blog about these right after we found out that my daughter is allergic to chocolate (well, SOMEthing in chocolate)! Poor thing now has to carry an epi pen and we have a long wait to get into see the allergist to determine exactly what it is. I will have a long wait before I can make these; but I’m still happy to have another peanut butter/chocolate combo to make… eventually!

  11. The melty one looks delicious!

  12. Believe a French chef also uses the chocolate discs in his chocolate chip cookies… Can’t beat PB and chocolate…You’ve brought a head-on collision of the best flavors of the cookie realm!

  13. These look so delicious.I’v never seen the baking wafers before. What are they like?? Thin chocolate discs or is there anything in the middle?
