Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I'm not a huge cookie person.

There, I said it.

But cookie BATTER on the other could get me to pretty much do anything for cookie batter. Including washing a sink full of dishes. 

The only reason any cookie dough ever gets in the oven at my house is because a) my husband likes cookies, and b) it would be immature to eat a whole bowl of cookie dough. We all know adults don't do such things, and we always wait until our food is 100% done before we taste it. duh.

Am I the ONLY one that eats as I bake?
I just can't help myself.

I will admit though, I did have of these munchkins. I've been wanting to make a cookie covered in some sort of chocolate for awhile. And yesterday was the day for such a thing!
There's nothing special about this recipe. In fact, I'm pretty sure everyone and their mom has made these at some time in their life. But when you add the white chocolate on top....It's a whole new world of A-M-A-Z-I-N-G-ness.
Plus, It was a great way to use up some Reeses Pieces I've had in my cabinet for awhile. Okay, they've only been there a week. A week to long in my book.

But they're a great way to use up any sort of chocolate or candy. In baking situations like this, less candy is not more. In fact less is just downright stupid, especially when your eating these.............or the dough.

Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cups flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 sticks butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 Bag Reeses Pieces baking chips
For White Chocolate Glaze:
2 Tbs. Butter
1 Cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl stir together flour, salt, and baking soda. In another large bowl stir together butter, both sugars, eggs, vanilla and cocoa. Gradually stir flour mixture into butter mixture and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and Reeses Pieces, and stir to distribute evenly.
 Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheets and bake 8-10 minutes.

 Cool on a baking rack.
While cookies are cooling, melt butter and white chips at 30 seconds, mix, then another 30 seconds. Mix very well til smooth.
Glaze the cookies while they are still a little warm.
And if you're feeling extra fancy, drizzle some chocolate on top :)



  1. Caleb just said, "Mom, you should make those because they look yummy!"

  2. The boys scarfed these down! I was shocked there were a couple left for Dad by the time he got home!
