They’re one of those throw-together cookie recipes that is so easy to make for a party or gathering. And they have that glorious chocolate and peanut butter flavor combo that will have everyone begging for the recipe.

I found this recipe in an old church cookbook that I found at our annual church rummage sale. That place is always a goldmine for old cookbooks, and this year was no exception! I made a few small changes to my own tastes, but for the most part, the recipe is intact.

Tips for making Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Line your sheet pans for easy clean up. You can use parchment or Silpat.
  • I feel like a good cookie scoop is a game changes for making cookies, they help get a uniform size every time which I love.
  • You could totally freeze this dough and that thaw it to bake for an upcoming party or chocolate binge. I haven’t tried baking them frozen, so if you do, please comment and tell me how it worked out!
  • You can also freeze these after you bake them and cool completely to thaw whenever the craving strikes!
  • I opted for dark chocolate cocoa powder for this because I wanted them to be really rich and extra chocolaty. If you are not a huge dark chocolate fan, you can totally swap it out for the same amount of regular cocoa powder.
  • In terms of chocolate chips vs. peanut butter chips, you can alter the ratios to your liking. The original recipe only uses peanut butter chips but I wanted these to be chocolate peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips as well. So basically you can keep the amount of “chips” the same and divide with between whatever combo of chocolate and peanut butter chips you’d like.
  • The will be good for up to a week on your counter in an air tight container. I like to put a piece for bread in with them to help keep them soft and chewy.

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
Servings: 4 dozen cookies
Author: Loosely adapted from Lyleen Adams' recipe in the Ebenezer United Methodist Church Cookbook from Clay Center, Kansas in 1990
Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cups butter, softened (I use salted because I like a saltier cookie but unsalted is great too)
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 cups Hershey's dark cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup peanut butter chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 340 degrees and line sheet pans with a silat or parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. Cream butter and sugar with a mixer until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes.

  3. Add eggs and vanilla extract and beat until well combined.

  4. In a separate bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Add into the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.

  5. Stir in chocolate chips  and peanut butter chips until evenly distributed.

  6. Scoop 1 inch balls onto lined cookie sheet and bale for 8-9 minutes. Don't over bake. The cookies will be soft and chewy; they will puff when the bake and flatted as they cool.

  7. Cool slightly and then remove from the sheet pan. Serve warm or completely cooled and store for up to a week in an air-tight container with a slice of bread in it (to help the cookies maintain their chewy texture).

    December 23, 2019 at 8:05 am My mom used to always make these at christmas time when i was growing up. These were my favorite cookie. She passed and i never got the recipe. I found a recipe and made them for christmas last year. They were great but after a day or two they had little spots in them that were hard. When you eat one its like there was little chunks that were a hard crumb inside. I put them in an airtight container with bread. Have you had that happen to you or do you know what that is? I never made them again, but I want to. Christmas is in two days. I think the recipe was off the reeses pb chip bag. Thank you

      December 26, 2019 at 3:21 pm Hi Ashley- I'm so sorry for your loss! I've never had that happen with this recipe. I can't speak for the other recipe you used, but it's possible they started going stale. I like to put a slice of bread in with my cookies to try and prevent them from hardening like that (I change the bread every couple days when the bread hardens). Perhaps that could help? Good luck!

    April 25, 2020 at 5:54 pm I love this recipe! I did alter it a bit by adding a 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/4 cup more of flour. Plus a bag each of chips. The cookies turned out fantastic! Definitely going to keep this recipe!
