"Recently I had to make some cookies for a party. Much to my dismay, I was out of chocolate chips and had one bag of peanut butter chips I didn't know what to do with. This recipe was (fortunately) a successful experiment as I crossed my favorite brownie and chocolate chip cookie recipes. My family likes it better than both. It tastes something like a peanut butter cup in cookie form."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat butter, shortening, white sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat the first egg into the butter until completely blended, then beat in the vanilla with the second egg. Mix flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt in another bowl; mix the flour mixture into the butter mixture until just incorporated. Fold in peanut butter chips, mixing just enough to evenly combine.
  3. Drop spoonfuls of the dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until cookies are set, about 8 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • For nicer-looking cookies, reserve some of the chips and press 3 to 4 by hand into the top of each cookie. Not necessary, and takes a few extra minutes, but they look a lot nicer when they're done.

Perfect! They stayed soft and plump! So much better than the recipe on the back of the Reece peanut butter chip bag. I made small cookies, and cooked them for 12 minutes. I also added some choco...

These cookies are AWESOME!! I did add about half cup of chocolate chips and i do find it needing a lot more time. my was perfect in 20 minutes.

This was my first time trying cookies with peanut butter chips. And I loved it! I only had 1/2 cup of white sugar so I filled the other half with pure cane granulated sugar. I also added about a...

Very nice recipe. I've tried 2 chocolate cookie recipes previously and while neither was bad neither was worth remaking. This recipe is a keeper. I grabbed butterscotch chips rather than pean...

You can't go wrong w/chocolate and peanut butter, right? I halved the recipe as I only had 1/2 bag of PB chips to use and that yielded 34 smallish cookies. Fresh out of the oven and slightly c...
