Soft and Chewy Peanutbutter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut butter cookies are great. I love the simple ones cross hatched with fork tines and rolled in sparkling sugar. But sometimes you just need to add chocolate. This is a delicious recipe for big, fat, soft peanut butter cookies studded with semi sweet chocolate chips and salty peanuts.

When I make chewy cookies, I like to scoop out big (about 1/4 cup) cookies. I think they stay chewier this way.

Here’s the recipe (adapted from  All Recipes)


  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped semisweet chocolate
  • 1/2 cup dry roasted peanuts

Preheat the oven to 375F. Cream the butter, peanut butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg, corn syrup, water, and vanilla. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add to the creamed mixture. Mix in the chocolate chips and peanuts by hand to prevent them getting broken up by the mixer. Scoop into big spoonfuls onto a prepared cookie sheet and bake for about 12 minutes.

Easy recipe to bake on a weekend and enjoy with a glass of milk. Enjoy!

    I’ve been trying to perfect the chewy peanut butter cookie,add chocolate chips for my husband. Well this is a great recipe with both, I did leave out the salted peanuts.. Excellent thick chewy cookies, I used honey ” I didn’t have corn syrup” and I added one extra egg yolk for a little more chew. These were delicious thank you so for sharing, I also like that you only used 1/2 cup of butter..
