Chocolate Cookies with Peanut Butter Chips

Chocolate Cookies with Peanut Butter Chips

Did everyone have a nice Memorial Day weekend? We sure did. We spent the weekend at the Dewey’s. We adopted ourselves into their family:) We had a couple of bbq’s, enjoyed some pool time, basketball, baking, movies, runs/walks, and movies. The perfect weekend. It was hard to come back to work today.

I made several treats over the weekend. I love baking for crowds. Everything gets gobbled up which means no temptation for me:) I usually don’t bake peanut butter treats because Josh is allergic, but I knew everyone else would love them.

I made chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips. A very chocolaty cookie, more like a brownie with peanut butter chips. Nothing too special or out of the ordinary, but just a good cookie. I did use yogurt and I am glad I did. The cookies were really soft. You really can’t go wrong with the chocolate and peanut butter combo.


Chocolate Cookies with Peanut Butter Chips 

(Printable Recipe)

1 cup all-purpose flour

¼ teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons butter
7 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
2/3 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/3 cup plain yogurt
(I used fat free)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup of peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350ºF; line 2 baking sheets with baking paper, lightly coated with cooking spray. I used Silpats!

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Sift together flour, soda, and salt; set aside.

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat; stir in cocoa powder and sugars (mixture will resemble coarse sand). Add yogurt and vanilla, stirring to combine. Add flour mixture, stirring until moist. Stir in peanut butter chips. Drop by level tablespoons 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets.

Bake for 10 minutes or until almost set. Cool on pans 2 to 3 minutes or until firm. Remove cookies from pans; cool on wire racks.

    They do sound good, Maria. Peanut butter chips are out of this world – I can eat them out of hand so I don’t keep them in the pantry :-).

  14. A_and_N — May 26, 2009 @ 7:07 am

    the cookie alone would make any day memorable Maria :) these look nice and chewy. I have never used peanut butter chips before though. Nice idea!

    holiday weekends are the best, except for the first day back at work… it’s always so hard to get back into the groove!

    the cookies look delish

  25. Teanna DiMicco — May 26, 2009 @ 9:19 am

    Really. Honestly. I don’t think there is anything better. There is seriously nothing better than chocolate and peanut butter… except maybe chocolate and peanut butter in a cookie form!
