Chocolate Chunk Peanut Butter Swirl Fudge Cookies

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!

How to Make These Fudgy Cookies

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 🙂

    Epic fail for me on your Chocolate Chunk Peanut Butter Swirl Fudgy Cookies 🙁
    Did you use salted or unsalted butter? Mine came out greasy and flat. 🙁
    Not at all like your pictures. Any suggestions? I used dark brown sugar instead of light, could that have ruined them?

    Awesome cookies! I replaced the PB with WOW Butter (tastes just like PB) and they were WOW cookies 🙂 Great way for the kids to eat cookies without having to worry about lil friends with allergies. Will be making your cookies again and again. Thanks 🙂

    Hi! Thanks for the recipe. Just one note, you give two different cooking times in the recipe. One for 14-16 minutes in the text, and one for 10-15 minutes in the step by step. I would advice editing the 14-16, because these cookies tasted much better when they weren’t cooked at the longer cooking times. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing!
