Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
It’s amazing what can inspire you. I opened the freezer to get something for supper the other night night and saw a bag of peanut butter chips.

I immediately thought of gooey chocolate peanut butter chip cookies.

The image just would not disappear, so (heavy sigh) I just had to make a batch. It was a tough job, but somebody had to do it. 😉

Feeling a bit adventurous, I played with the recipe somewhat, adding some peanut butter to the cookies themselves and throwing in some chocolate chips.

After partaking of much cookie dough and sampling several finished cookies, I went to bed exhausted but too wound up on sugar and chocolate to sleep.

Oh the things I endure in the name of chocolate experimentation…. 🙂

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Cream together 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar.

Add 2 eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla.

Mix together 2 cups flour, 2/3 cups cocoa, 3/4 teaspoon baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir into the creamed mixture.

Fold in 2 cups peanut butter chips and 1 cup of chocolate chips.

Drop by teaspoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees. (Don’t over bake or they will get tough.)

Makes about 2 dozen cookies, if you don’t eat too much dough!
