Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies

Peanut butter and chocolate is the best combination. Imagine how wonderful it would be to have a duvet day, reading and eating these. They’re delightful with a cappuccino and even better dunked in milk. Amber makes them and they turn out even better than the supermarket bakery version.


112g butter

100g caster sugar

100g brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

120g crunchy peanut butter

170g plain flour

1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Pinch of salt

100g milk chocolate – broken into smallish chunks


Makes 12

Pre heat oven to 180C / 160C fan

Place butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl and beat together until light and fluffy.

Beat in the egg, flour, vanilla and bicarbonate of soda.

Finally add the chocolate chunks and peanut butter, stirring well to combine.

Form 12 mounds and divide between 2 lined baking trays, so the cookies have room to spread out.

Bake in the centre of the oven for approximately 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and leave on the tray for 10 minutes or so before transferring with a pan slice to a wire rack.
