Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Globs

Hello!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Globs IntroI like to use my vacation time to bake. So, while I’m on April break, I think it is totally appropriate to make some very tasty, probably not-very-healthy, peanut butter cookies to enjoy. I can’t think of a better combination than chocolate and peanut  butter, so when I read about making peanut butter cookies with Nutella in them, I was all game. My family is not a Nutella household, so I just substituted my favorite chocolate peanut butter, which is VERY similar. {see here to learn more} The dough is a bit difficult to work with, but don’t lose hope. You will end up with delicious glob-shaped cookies to share. Or not. I wouldn’t blame you if you kept them all for yourself.

*The name is, of course, referring to the glob shape of the cookies. These are not orderly, little round balls of dough :)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Globs Adapted from Averie Cooks

ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup chocolate peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • a heaping 1/4 cup chocolate chips

to make

  1. Beat together the egg, peanut butter, and sugar with an electric mixer fixed with the paddle attachment for about three minutes. Scrape down the bowl, and continue to beat for two minutes, or until fully creamy.
  2. Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Stir in by hand the chocolate. The dough will be a bit crumbly, but should hold together when pressed with your hands.
  4. Bring the dough together in one large ball. Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for two hours.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Grease one baking sheet.
  6. Form a ball {about a tablespoon and a half} of dough and place down on sheet. Continue to form dough balls until all is used up. Place them evenly across the baking sheet. Four rows of four worked for me!
  7. Bake for ten minutes, keeping a close eye on them near the end.
  8. Let cookies cool before testing one out! I recommend one with a big glass of milk.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
