When I split this warm chocolate cookie open and saw the chocolate oozing out, I about fainted with excitement, lol! Swirls of peanut butter accompany giant chocolate chunks. This cookie will go down as one of my favorite recipes by a mile 🙂
Kind of reminds me of one of my favorite ice cream flavors I used to get when I was a little girl. Chocolate with peanut butter swirls at Thrifty. I actually still love it and I REALLY love it in this cookie 🙂
Take a peek and enjoy!
First, place 1 Cup of creamy peanut butter into the freezer for a good 1/2 hour. Next use a good quality bloc of chocolate and chop it up into large pieces like this. This particular chocolate is Sarris….which is incredible 🙂
Cream your butter and sugars.
Add your eggs and vanilla, mixing until well combined.
Time to add the dry ingredients.
…..and the cocoa powder.
….add those chocolate chunks right into the cookie dough.
Take your frozen peanut butter out of the freezer and place dollops into the dough. Turn mixer on for just a few turns of the paddle to ensure you get swirls into the dough.
Double mama mia 🙂 Take a spoon to this, it’s incredible!
Scoop them onto your favorite cookie baking sheet and pop them into oven at 350 for 10 to 15 minutes.
