Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

IMG_2265g2

I’m excited to share this recipe with you guys today because not only is it the simplest cookie recipe that we’ve posted, it also requires minimal ingredients! You will most likely already have all the ingredients on hand which makes these cookies even better.

I wanted to make some classic chocolate cookies but didn’t have certain ingredients on hand and of course it was too late at night to run to the store, so I scoured the cupboard and made these delish simple, soft chocolate cookies using the ingredients that I had on hand.

This is an extremely simple recipe which doesn’t require any crazy ingredients. It’s the perfect cookie recipe if you are in a rush and want to whip up some cookies for kids, or to satisfy your sweet-tooth cookie craving in a snap! (Sometimes you just need a cookie ASAP.) 😉 These cookies bake up nice and soft, and are a perfect mix of fudgy chocolate with a hint of peanut butter.

I used Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chips, but feel free to use the chocolate chips of your choice! For an extra fudgy, doubley chocolate dose – try using semisweet or dark chocolate chips.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Ingredients:
{yield: approx. 18-20 cookies}

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chips (or any flavour chocolate chips of your choice)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray & set aside.
In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract until light and fluffy.

In a separate medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Slowly stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until combined.

Using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop (or spoon), scoop out dough and using your hands, roll the dough into balls. Place balls on baking sheet and slightly flatten them with the palm of your hand.

Bake for only 8-10 minutes, until just set. Allow cookies to cool slightly on the cookie sheets before transferring cookies to a wire rack.

Enjoy!

    • We’ve definitely been eating way more sweets than normal with all the holiday baking and such!
      My Grandma’s birthday was actually a few days ago as well, and I made her a double layer chocolate cake. Our family loves our baking and are more than willing to help us eat it all, ha!
      We’re going to start baking healthier recipes this month for a change. 🙂
