Chocolate Chunk & Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Some days just call for baking cookies…  Like when you wake up and it is 13 degrees BELOW ZERO F!…  What a great way to warm up the house – right?

And besides, my son, Nick, has been whining for requesting some chocolate chip cookies for a couple of weeks now.  I’m kind of “famous” for my chocolate chip cookies, but I hate doing the same old thing.  I’m a change junkie.  So instead of the usual chocolate chip cookies, I kicked it up a notch by mixing chocolate chunks and peanut butter chips in my classic recipe.

They taste pretty awesome…  with a glass of milk…. coffee… hot chocolate… red wine (LOL!  Everything goes with red wine – right?).

Ingredients:

1 lb (4 sticks) butter, softened to room temperature
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 bag Nestle’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chunks
1 bag Reese’s Peanut Butter Chips

Mix softened butter and sugars with mixer until well blended. Add vanilla and eggs and mix until creamy. Add dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda) until well incorporated. Fold in chocolate and peanut butter chips.

Refrigerate dough for several hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Shape dough into 1 1/2 – 2 Tbsp balls and flatten slightly. Bake on baking stone for 8-9 minutes. Let cool on stone for approximately 5 minutes, then remove to cooling rack to cool completely.

Cookies freeze well in Ziploc bags.

Enjoy!

Cheers & Hugs,

  1. These look delicious! I will have to try them. I cheat when I make cookies. I use a packet of Betty Crocker’s Oatmeal & Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix, add 1/2 to 3/4 cup shredded coconut and chopped walnuts. I also use 2 eggs instead of 1 egg. Yummy! Now I have to try this recipe. It sounds amazing!!

    • The temperature is up to 20 degrees today – feels like a heat wave – but….. we’ve got about 4 inches of snow already this morning and still coming down fast and furious. LOL!

      • It has been surprisingly warm here the past few weeks with the exception of a few days. I have been opening up my big kitchen window. Today is going to be 55 deg. so a little cooler than yesterday. I am so ready for spring and I know you must be ready too!

  2. Oh Jodi now you made me hungry for the recipe my hubby found and made. Chocolate chip and peanut butter flourless cookies. They are so yummy! Think I may just have to put on my fuzzy robe and bake to heat up the house like you said 🙂

  3. Good heavens Jodi – you are a fabulous food stylist! It’s incredibly difficult to photograph food and make it look appealing. Your pictures were not only appealing, but I wanted to eat my laptop screen!

    I’ve been fighting the urge to make cookies during the chilly weather (no -13 in Altanta, but it did get down to 12 and 14 a couple of nights.) I’ve been successful until now. I’m in dangerous territory. 🙂
