We’re crazy for chocolate peanut butter everything around here, and these Ultimate Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies are just the ticket to hit the spot for that perfect flavor combination. These cookies are loaded with Reese’s peanut butter chips and Butterfinger candy bar pieces. We’re pretty much in chocolate peanut butter heaven with these cookies, and we know you’re going to love them too!
We made a fun video to show you how easy they are to whip up!
I took a couple screenshots along the way so you can see just how packed they are! A full bag of Reese’s peanut butter chips dumped in…
and a bag of Butterfinger candy bar pieces goes in too! You can find both of these on your baking aisle.
These cookies are big! We love the Good Cook Ice Cream Scoop for scooping out perfect uniformed cookie dough balls. The cookie dough balls measure about 3 Tablespoon in size and about 3.5 inch diameter x 1/4 to 3/8th inches thick. The trick is to bake them for a short time (see recipe) and then let them sit on the hot pan out of the oven for a good 20 minutes. They will continue to bake from the heat of the pan, yet they will stay soft with less time in the oven.
Here’s the recipe to print.
- 2 sticks of butter (1 cup), softened
- 1½ cups sugar
- ½ cups brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- 1½ cups flour
- 1 cup cake flour
- 1½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 bag Reese’s peanut butter chips
- 1 bag Butterfinger candy bar pieces
- Preheat oven to 400.
- In a stand mixer cream the butter and sugars together until well combined.
- Add in the eggs and continue to mix until incorporated.
- In a separate bowl whisk together the dry ingredients: cocoa powder, flours, baking powder and salt.
- Add in the dry ingredients and mix until combined.
- Turn mixer off and fold in the peanut butter chips and the Butterfinger pieces.
- With a large ice cream scoop, scoop out big balls of the cookie dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. About 6 cookies per sheet.
- Bake for 6 minutes at 400 degrees.
- Remove cookies from the oven and leave on the cookie sheet and cover with a clean hand towel. The cookies will continue to cook from the heat of the cookie sheet.
- Let the cookies cool for 20 minutes or so on the pan.
They’re so good! You’ll have to make them soon!
