Double Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookies

Do you know what the best thing in the world is?

No? You give up?

Eating one of these cookies, warm and straight out of the oven, after not having eaten for 40 hours.

Yeah. I can see you drooling already and I'm only three sentences in.

(Just in case you were wondering I was giving up food and talking for the 40 Hour Famine I wasn't just starving for fun. It's also not too late to head on over to my page and donate some money - - $40 can feed a family of six for a month, you know...)

Anyway, the point of this post is really just short and (deliciously) sweet: these cookies are crunchy and chewy on the outside, warm and melty on the inside, and full of peanut buttery, chocolate chunky goodness.

You're welcome :)

Double Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookies

115g of butter, softened
1/2 cup of peanut butter (I used crunchy, but I'm sure you can use whatever you want)
1/2 cup of caster sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
1 cup of flour (I started off with one cup, but found it to be a little too wet, and ended up adding about another 1/4 of a cup)
1/2 teaspoon of bicarb soda
1 1/2 cups of chocolate chunks (I chopped up dark and white chocolate, mainly because we didn't have any chips left...)

  1. Beat the butter and peanut butter until pale. Add the sugars and beat for about a minute, then add the egg and vanilla until combined.
  2. Stir in the flour, bicarb and chocolate until combined. If it's too wet, add up to another 1/4 cup of flour, or refrigerate for 10 - 15 minutes.
  3. Scoop spoonfuls onto baking trays lined with baking paper, and bake at 190C for 9 - 11 minutes (depending upon how chewy or crunchy you like your cookies).
  4. Leave to cool on wire racks.

(The cookie was so warm and gooey that it just fell apart, haha)
