I made these cookies for our company pot luck lunch and it is really hard for me to not eat them all! They are so chocolaty and filled with peanut butter chips. They are soft and chewy and crisp around the edges.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies
Makes 5 dozen
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 cups peanut butter chips (I used Reeses)
Preheat oven to 350F. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until combined. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture, stirring until combined. Stir in the peanut butter chips. Chill the cookie dough for 30 minutes.
Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place about 2 inches apart on nonstick baking sheets. Bake until cookies are set and edges are firm, turning halfway through baking, about 12 minutes. Place the baking sheets on wire racks. Let the cookies cool completely.
