Chocolate and peanut butter cookies

March 26, 2015Sew White

Chocolate and peanut butter cookies mix two delicious flavours together. The iconic peanut butter flavour works so well with cookies.

 I was luck to be given a huge bag of Reese’s Pieces and knew they would have to go into cookies. These cookies I could easily eat without baking them in anything but I thought cookies would be a lovely thing to make and share with my friends. I decided to add peanut butter to the mix as well as having the pieces in them. This was a very good decision.  These were happily devoured very quickly.

I love the look of the Reese’s Pieces going into the dough.

To make nice size cookies I used a heaped tablespoon per one and it made 20 cookies.

  • 140 g unsalted butter
  • - 60g peanut butter
  • - 300g light brown soft sugar
  • - 2 eggs
  • - a few drops of vanilla extract
  • - 350g plain flour
  • - 50g cocoa powder
  • - 1 teaspoon of bicarb of soda
  • - 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • - pinch of salt
  • - 200g Reese's Pieces (set 50g aside to decorate the dough before it goes in the oven

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees / 160 fan /Gas mark 3 and line 3 baking sheets with greaseproof baking parchment.
  2. Cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugar.

  3. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix in.

  4. Sieve in the flour, baking powder, cocoa, bicarb and a pinch of salt.

  5. Stir in in the flour until you get a thick mix. If is it too dry add a little splash of milk.

  6. Add 150g of the Reese's Pieces and mix in until evenly distributed.

  7. Take heaped tablespoons of the mix and pop them on the lined baking trays. Make sure they aren't too close together as they will spread.

  8. Use up the last Reese's Pieces to add a few to the top of the cookies.

  9. Bake for 10 minutes.

  10. Allow the cookies to cool for a few seconds and enjoy. They taste lovely warm with a cup of tea.
