Chocolate Chip-Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

December 13, 2011

This past month I participated in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap!  It was a fun event involving over 600 bloggers and many, many more cookies.  The concept bloggers each made three-dozen cookies and sent a dozen to three randomly selected bloggers.  That way ever blogger sent out three-dozen cookies, and even better, received three-dozen cookies!  When I was deciding what to make, there really was no competition, it had to be the Lion’s most favorite chocolate chip-peanut butter chip cookies!

Making the cookies

As I’ve previously mentioned, the Lion is a huge fan of chocolate and peanut butter.  I started making chocolate chip cookies with peanut butter chips added in.  With the Lion’s feedback and suggestions, we eventually got ourselves a perfect recipe for the cookies!  The Lion loves these cookies and I love making them for him.  They are ooey-gooey, soft and chewy,  chocolatey and peanut butter-y!  They are definitely best served with a big glass of milk!

Yummy chocolate chip-peanut butter chip cookies
For the cookie swap I sent these cookies to Annalise of Completely Delicious, Jewel of Eat.Drink.Shop.Love, and Christina of Sweet Lavender Bake Shoppe.  I really hope that they enjoyed them!  I also got some pretty incredible cookies from a handful of bloggers as well.  Emily of Back to the Cutting Board sent me some incredible molasses cookies with an amazing orange sugar topping.  I can’t wait to make them!  Amber of Amber’s Confections sent me some delicious double chocolate crackles.  They were deliciously chocolatey with some great white chocolate chips!  Deanna of Silly Goose Farm sent me some awesome gingerbread biscotti as well as capucinno chocolate chip biscotti!  Two-in-one and awesomely delicious.  Thanks for all the cookies!  If you are interested in participating next, go ahead and subscribe to their mailing list.  It was a blast!

Chocolate Chip-Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

From at

Prep: Cook: Yield: 12-18 cookiesTotal:

Deliciously gooey chocolate chip, peanut butter chip cookies.

You'll Need...

  • 2 sticks butter at room temperature
  • 1 and 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 and 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips


  1. Place the butter and sugar in the bowl of the stand mixer and beat with the paddle attachment until smooth and creamy.  Add the vanilla and beat to combine well.  Add one egg at a time, and beat well to combine.  Make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl frequently so that everything blends well.
  2. Add the flour slowly, and beat to combine well.  Add the baking soda and the salt, and beat again.  Scrape down the bowl to ensure that no flour is left on the sides or bottom.  Add the chocolate chips and peanut butter chips and stir.
  3. Place the dough in the fridge for at least 15 minutes to firm up a bit.  Preheat oven to 375F.
  4. Make little balls of dough and place on a baking sheet.  Bake for 7 minutes if you like your cookies on the rawer side or up to 9 minutes if you prefer a crispy/chewy cookie.

Additional Notes

Note:  These cookies are best if you let them sit in the fridge for 24-48 hours.  Something changes and they get extra gooey and awesome.  That is, of course, if you can stop yourself from eating all the dough before then!

    I'm so glad you liked the cookies! I hope they didn't take too long to get there, UPS had some trouble with one of my other deliveries.

    Your cookies look great! You can't go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter and I love how thick the cookies are. Can't wait to try the recipe!
