Travis came home this past weekend, so I needed to do some cooking and baking for my poor starving college student! I had an open bag of Reese’s peanut butter chips, so I decided to make the chocolate cookies on the back of the bag.
The only difference was that I only had one cup of peanut butter chips, rather than the 1 2/3 cup the recipe called for, so I added in 1 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips. I would do that again, I loved the combination of chips. These cookies sort of poofed up while cooking and then totally flattened out once cool. But they stayed moist and chewy. I think this recipe would be good with some sort of mint chips too! Yum!
Reese’s Chewy Chocolate Cookies
2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 sticks butter or margarine, softened
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup Reese’s peanut butter chips
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Stir together dry ingredients and set aside. Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well. Gradually add flour mixture and mix well. Add chips and mix well.
Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350* for 8 to 9 minutes. Do not over bake. The cookies will be soft. Let cool slightly before removing to a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
