Has anyone told you they have the best cookie recipe? I know I've said it and I think I do have some pretty delicious ones. Well that all changed when my aunt made these Chocolate Choc-Chip Peanut Butter Cup Cookies for our family reunion. I took one bite and fell in love! I got the recipe, made a batch then another and another...they're addicting. They start out with a chocolate and peanut butter dough, then you stir in peanut butter cups and chocolate chips. They're soft on the outside, moist and kind of brownie like on the inside. In my opinion, these are truly the best cookie I've ever made. I'm so happy my aunt shared the recipe and now you'll get to enjoy them too!
3/4 C sugar
3/4 C brown sugar
3/4 C creamy peanut butter
1/2 C butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 C flour
1/3 C cocoa
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
16 full-sized peanut butter cups
3/4 C chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease two cookie sheets.
Cut each peanut butter cup into eight pieces.
Place these on an ungreased cookie sheet and place in the freezer.
Cream together the sugars, peanut butter, eggs, butter, and vanilla.
Mix in the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Carefully fold in the peanut butter cups.
Scoop out (I used an ice cream scoop) some dough and place onto the cookie sheets.
Bake for 10-11 minutes; do not over bake!
Cool for a minute then remove to a cooling rack...enjoy!
