  • 8 oz unsalted butter 2 sticks
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 bag of peanut butter chip 10 oz


  • Melt the butter over medium low heat in a small sauce pan. Let cool to room temperature.
  • Meanwhile, sift or mix together flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and baking powder in a medium bowl.
  • In a small measuring cup, add the eggs and vanilla extract, whisk together. Set aside.
  • Add the cool butter and sugar in another mixing bowl and beat with a paddle attachment on medium speed until fluffy and lighten in color, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the egg mixture to the butter/sugar mixture and beat on low speed to combine for 1 – 2 minutes.
  • Gradually add the flour mixture, scraping the side and bottom of the bowl as necessary.
  • Once all the flour is incorporated, turn the mixer speed to stir and add the peanut butter chips, mix until the chips are evenly distributed.
  • Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Use a large ice cream scoop (the one I used is about 2 oz) to portion the cookie dough onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet 1” apart. Bake for 15 minutes. Bake in 2 to 3 batches.
  • Let cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer with a spatula to cool completely on a wire rack.
