As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, cookies are not typically my forte. They just don’t ever turn out like I want them, but these? I think it’s safe to say they’re the better of the cookies that I’ve made.
I’ve been dying to bake with Nestle’s new filled chocolate chips, so I finally bought a couple bags of the peanut butter filled baking morsels and decided this was the perfect opportunity to use them! You know, after I ate like half a bag. There’s also peanut butter in the actual cookie dough, as well as drizzled on top. The first time I made these cookies, I wasn’t thinking and mailed them before I took photos, so I made them again and decided to throw in the drizzle and some extra peanut butter morsels. I just couldn’t stop with the pb!
So, to Jenni, Melissa, and Meghan, I hope you enjoy the cookies and that they made it to y’all in one piece!
They great thing about all the various cookies I got is they were all completely different. I received Thumbprint Jam Cookies from Turnips 2 Tangerines, Peanut Butter White Chocolate Chip Cookies from Peanut Butter & Peppers, Polish Gingerbread Cookies from What’s on the Plate, Mexican Hot Chocolate Sugar Cookies from Chicago Foodie Girl, adorable Candy Cane Mollomars from Wilde in the Kitchen, and Red Velvet Candy Cane Kiss Cookies from DelightfulEMade.
These were all so wonderful, and mix up or not, I’m so glad I received each one of them! They were delicious and I had to share them with anyone I could so I wouldn’t eat them all. Thank you to each one of you!
Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup butter room temp
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cup Nestle peanut butter filled chocolate chips
- Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Combine flour, baking soda, cocoa powder, cream of tartar, and salt in a bowl and whisk together.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, or a large bowl with a hand-held electric mixer, beat butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Mixed until combined and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs and mix well.
- Add half the flour mixture and mix until incorporated. Repeat with the second half of the flour. Add the peanut butter filled chocolate chips.
- Cover and place the cookie dough in the refrigerator for about half an hour. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Scoop the cookie dough into balls and place on the prepared baking sheets about 1 inch apart. Bake for 11-12 minutes. Let the cookies cool for 5-10 minutes and repeat this process with the rest of the cookie dough.
- If you'd like, you can also add peanut butter morsels and drizzle the cookies with melted peanut butter morsels after they've cooled.
I’m eating one of these cookies as I write this. It has just the right balance between chocolate and peanut butter which means the chocolate is just a little more noticeable. It is light, but packs a lot of flavor. The best cookie I have eaten during the holiday season (and I have had my fair share of cookies so far). 🙂
I’m glad you liked them! Chocolate and peanut butter are always a good choice. 🙂
haha oh my gosh 6 boxes!! That’s definitely a lot of cookies! 🙂
And these … peanut butter filled? I’ll take a dozen please and thank you!
Uhh yeah, A LOT of cookies. haha:) Thanks, Ashley!

Thanks, lady! Haha, yeah I had a couple people remind me this year since I complained about missing it last year. Love the biscotti you made! 🙂
Rachel @ Bakerita says
All the cookies you received look delicious, and I want to stuff my face with your chocolate PB ones! I’ve been wanting to try those filled Morsels too, I think I’ll need to grab a bag and whip these up. Pinned!
You NEED to try the filled morsels! They are addictive. 😉 Thanks for pinning, Rachel!
Oh man these look so good! I have done the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap every year until this year! I was so sad to see that I had missed the sign up deadline. I honestly don’t know what happened. You can bet I won’t miss it next year!
Thanks so much, Brittany! That’s so cool you’ve done the cookie swap every year! I will definitely be doing it again. 🙂

Ashley | Spoonful of Flavor says
Wow, how did you get so lucky with six boxes of cookies! 🙂 They all look delicious and so do these peanut butter filled cookies. Chocolate and PB is the best combination. I wouldn’t be able to stop eating these!
I wish I was one of your recipients says Mr J. These peanut butter cookies will be gone in no time here!
Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction says
Can’t go wrong with peanut butter chocolate cookies! I would have loved to have received a box of these!
These cookies look so rich and delicious!
Nora (A Clean Bake) says
In my humble opinion, the holy trinity of chocolate, peanut butter, and more chocolate tends to get unfairly overlooked during the holidays, so I’m glad to see you are working on this! Seriously, though, these sound great, and I’m so jealous of the lucky recipients of your boxes. Perhaps more jealous of you for receiving so many! I loved participating in the swap last year, and couldn’t this year, but am already excited for 2015’s swap 🙂
Oh my gosh, 6 boxes? That sounds like cookie heaven – they all look amazing though! Especially your peanut butter filled ones! Your recipients are so lucky! I would love a dozen of these 🙂
Meriem @ Culinary Couture says
You lucky duck you! Six boxes of cookies sounds like a real treat! And so do these delicious cookies, wish i could have been one of your matches!
