2 1/2 cups
unsweetened cocoa powder
1 (3 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
peanut butter chips
These are really good! I think these have the *perfect* amount of chocolate flavor. They are nice and rich with the cream cheese, but not overly sweet. I halved the recipe and still ended up with 24 cookies. 8 minute cooking time with 5 minutes of cooling on the pan was spot on. The dough was really easy to work with and the directions were clear and concise, which I always appreciate. Give these a shot! Thanks :)
if i could give this 0 stars i would; i am 17 and i love to bake so i tried the cream cheese instead...people in my house were so disappointed you cant even taste the chocolate only peanut butter..they were flat and crispy; just like paula says butter makes it better and never again will i try a substitution for butter. i think that had ALOT to do with it and the fact that it only says 1/3 cups of cocoa powder sorry ;(
These are surprisingly addictive! I can't stress enough - take these out of the oven at 8-8 1/2 minutes and let them sit on the pan for 5 minutes. They will not look done when you remove them from the oven, but by the time they cool off on the rack, they'll be perfection!! Moist and chewy like a gourmet cookie! Two minor changes I made: 1.)used the Nestle chocolate & peanut butter chip bag (come mixed together). It was really good without being overly peanut-y. and 2.) I dropped by rounded TABLESPOONS, not teaspoons (would be a ridiculously small cookie if you did that!). Also, I baked 2 dozen, then formed the rest into balls (about another 2 dozen), froze them on a cookie sheet, then transferred to baggies. It's been great to pull out a few cookie balls and bake them up fresh!! (Balls are formed with the same measurement: rounded tablespoon.) Also, I agree with another reviewer - flatten them out a bit like you do with a peanut butter cookie dough.
WOW! I was initally a little nervous trying a recipe that didn't have any reviews and only 1 rating, but I am SO GLAD that I did! These are wonderful.
The thing that sets these cookies apart is the texture. They are so soft, they literally just melt in your mouth. I've never had a cookie like this before, so it is hard to describe. The best I can say is just try them!!
I used 1/2 cup splenda instead of the white sugar and 2 large eggs. I took them out of the oven right at 8 minutes. Make sure you use peanut butter chips that are fresh...mine were a bit old and a little stale. Despite stale chips, the cookies were WONDERFUL!
Loved the chewy consistency- a nice substantial cookie. Appreciated the use of only 1/2 c. butter and I substituted low-fat cream cheese. However, these cookies were indiscriminately sweet (overpowered the peanut butter), not really chocolatey.
these were really tasty. i realized more than halfway thru the recipe that i had no eggs! so, i grabbed a ripe banana and used that as a binder instead. wow! you can taste the banana in the cookie, and my husband said it "would have been Elvis' favorite"! thanks for the recipe :)
Very good cookies. Will try with a little mashed bananas next time. Know that these cookies do not spread so flatten them a bit before baking or you end up with big cookie mounds!
Exceptional! The cookies are so soft and chewy. I think that 2 cups of flour would do, as the dough was almost crumbly with 2.5 cups. Still delicious!
