Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Chubbies

  • Prep : 20 mins
  • Cooking : 10 mins
  • Serves : 48

Ingredients

Serves 48
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped unsalted roasted peanuts
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped unsalted roasted peanuts

Directions

Step 1.

Whisk the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl until relatively free of cocoa lumps.

Step 2.

Put the butter, peanut butter, and sugars in a large bowl, and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until lighter in color and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Beat in the eggs and vanilla on low speed. Stir in the flour mixture with a spoon. Stir in the chips and nuts.

Step 3.

Position your oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Heat the oven to 350ºF and line 2 large baking sheets with foil.

Step 4.

Roll the dough between your palms into 1½-inch balls and set them on the prepared sheets about 1 inch apart. Bake just until the cookie centers look dull instead of shiny, about 10 minutes. (Cookies will feel soft to the touch but do not bake further.) Cool for 5 minutes in the pan. Slide the foil off the baking sheet to transfer the entire batch of cookies to a cooling rack. Loosen them from the foil when they are firm enough to hold their shape. Then cool them completely on the rack.

Tip: Avoid overbaking! The texture of these treats is somewhere between a brownie and a peanut butter cookie, so they taste best when slightly underdone.
