Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

If you are looking for a sweet for your sweet this Valentine’s Day (or anytime of the year), check out this over the top Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe! I love any cookie that has both chocolate and peanut butter, but the finale of dipping this cookie in chocolate truly pushes it over the edge. Yum!

This cookie would make a perfect addition to your Christmas Cookie tray, act as a beautiful end to a homemade Valentine’s Day Dinner and would be a well received gift for your friends, family, teachers and more.

This recipe calls for dark chocolate candy melts for dipping, but you could also use any leftover almond bark that you might have from the holidays.

In terms of ingredients, I love to bake and tend to invest more money in high quality flour, cocoa, vanilla, baking chips, chocolate and eggs. I have no issue stocking up on staples such as brown sugar, white sugar, baking powder and baking soda at discount chains like ALDI where the prices are amazingly low and the quality is comparable (or higher) on many items.

Other baking tips that I always follow are to use unsalted, room temperature (real!) butter. It’s also important to figure out how your oven bakes and adapt the baking time to your oven. For example, when we moved a couple of years ago, I found that my gas oven baked my cookies faster than my electric oven did. I now tend to adjust the baking time of many of my recipes by a few minutes so that I don’t over bake my cookies/cakes etc…

Without further ado, here is the Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe. I hope that you enjoy!

Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe
Ingredients
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg white
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup mini peanut butter cups, chopped
  • 1 ½ cup dark chocolate candy melts
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375-degrees and line your baking sheet with parchment paper. Cream the butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Beat in the vanilla and egg white. Gently stir in the dry ingredients, then fold in the chocolate chips and peanut butter cup pieces.
  2. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet at least 2-inches apart. Bake for 8 minutes or until set, taking care not to over bake. Cool for 1 minute on the baking sheet, then remove to a wire rack until the cookies are completely cooled.
  3. Once the cookies are at room temperature, spread a piece of parchment paper over a baking sheet. Melt the dark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl according to the directions on the package. Once the chocolate is smooth, dip half the cookie into the chocolate, then place carefully onto the parchment paper to cool and harden. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
  4. Slide the baking sheet in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  5. Store in an airtight container.
