Servings 12 large cookies
Author Leigh Anne Wilkes


  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 pkg. or 2 cups of peanut butter chips


  • Cream butter and sugars together.
  • Add in vanilla and eggs and mix to combine.
  • Sift cocoa powder in (cocoa is lumpy and you don't want lumps) and add in flours and salt.
  • Mix together and then add in chips.
  • Place dough onto a piece of plastic wrap and pat into a ball, wrap and refrigerate to chill. Several hours to overnight.
  • Cut the chilled dough into pieces, about 1/3 cup size place on parchment covered paking sheet. I formed mine into a slightly flattened ball.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 16 minutes or longer if making cookies bigger (about 18 minutes)
  • They may look a little raw in the middle which is fine. Remove and let them cool and they will set up.
