Giant Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

I have the best roommates in the world and these are for them. I found this recipe on Su Good Sweets. The recipe is listed in the comments section (scroll down to the middle of the page). Yields 12 giant cookies.

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks cold unsalted butter
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup good quality dark cocoa powder
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher salt
  • 3/4 to 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks
  • 2 cups peanut butter chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and then beat in cocoa powder. Mix in the rest of the dry ingredients except the chocolate and peanut butter chips until just combined. Fold in the chips.
  3. Transfer dough to a clean work surface and mix the dough by hand.
  4. Divide the dough into 12 equal parts. Flatten dough out and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 16-20 minutes, depending on how well baked you want the insides to be.

Modifications

  • I couldn’t find dark cocoa powder (not that I was trying really hard anyway), so I used Ghirardelli’s Sweet Ground Chocolate and Cocoa.
  • I had no kosher salt, so I substituted it with 1/2 teaspoon of regular salt.

After Thoughts

The recipe calls for cold butter, but I honestly believe it should be room temperature. Other than that, this is an excellent recipe, especially if you’re a chocolate and peanut butter fan. I tried a bit and I really liked the consistency. The cookie is certainly rich and dense and the flavors exceptionally well together. Many thanks to Lisa who posted this recipe and Su Good Sweets for hosting it!
