Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

One of the blogs that I've followed for some time is Barbara Bakes ( As soon as I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it. Intended for my guild meeting, I must confess that a few cookies "fell off the tray." They are ooey goeey right out of the oven, but equally delicious when they cool off.  Check out Barbara's site for a photo as well as other great recipes.


2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1 (10 oz) pkg peanut butter chips
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheets with parchment or silpat liners.
  2. In large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla and mix until well blended.
  4. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just blended. Stir in peanut butter chips and chocolate chips.
  5. Using a small cookie scoop, drop by rounded spoonfuls on to cookie sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until edges are set but the center is still be soft.
  6. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
