A marriage made in heaven...

Not ham and cheese or eggs and bacon but chocolate and peanut butter!


I found these chocolate cookies and they used cherry flavored Chips. Ick, not my thing. As always I played with it...

Peanut Butter Chips and Peanuts! YUM!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/4 cups cocoa powder (I used Hershey's Dark Chocolate Cocoa Powder)
2 tsps. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 bag of Reese's Peanut Butter Chips
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup lightly salted peanuts

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and use a cookie sheet with a silpat liner.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Slowly add eggs and vanilla until well combined.

3. In another bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to wet ingredients then stir in white chips and cherry chips. Using a medium cookie scoop, drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.

4. Bake for 9-11 minutes, should still be soft in center. ESSENTIAL: Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

3 dozen cookies

I love the rich intensity of the chewy dark chocolate and the bits of peanut butter and crunchy, slightly salty peanuts. Great with my coffee! Breakfast of champions!

Enjoy!

whjat is the diff. between cupcake pan and muffin pan?

Jenny MacKinnell said...

Anon- there is no difference. They are the same I teach my students to call it that. For the ones for sale in the stores call it "muffin tin". They also call a turner a spatula- abbreviations for tablespoon is tbsp, T, tbls, tblsp. Etc. The food equipment industry is an inconsistent hot mess.
