We should talk about peanut butter. Oh, and chocolate too. We should talk about the combination of peanut butter and chocolate and how wild it makes everybody!
Can you tell me what it is? Obviously, yes, I too know that it is delicious. But why? Why do we gravitate toward it?
Sweet and salty? Is that what were getting at? The perfect blend? Yeah, I think that must be it. And lucky for you, these cookies do just that. By combining peanut butter cookie dough with a bit of cocoa powder and chopped Reese’s, this cookie will satisfy that craving/love/desire for your favorite chocolate and peanut butter combination. You can thank me later.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Cookies
1/2 C Butter
1/2 C White Sugar
1/2 C Brown Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla
1/2 C Peanut Butter
1 C and 2 Tbsp Flour
1/2 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt

1 C Chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat well. Add the peanut butter and continue to beat. Add flour, salt, and baking soda and beat until a soft dough forms. Divide the dough into two sections. Add the cocoa powder to one section and continue to beat. Stir half of the chopped Reese’s into each portion of dough.
Grab a section of each portion of dough and roll it together to form a ball. Drop on to a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until the edges begin to brown.
