Peanut Butter Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

It was time for another great cookie experiment.  I liked the flavor of these but they are perhaps a little moist; it is hot and a bit humid today so it may just be the weather.  One thing I do like is to use butter in my cookies since I have it on hand; I’ve found over the years though that shortening makes for a little more stable cookie so feel free to substitute if you prefer.  I also debated on the egg ~ 1 or 2; maybe a second egg would have added more stability too.  In any case the cookies are delicious so give them a try if you like!

Peanut Butter Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips ~ I used semi-sweet
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup toffee bits

Cream together butter, peanut butter, and sugars.

Add vanilla and egg.  Stir in flour and baking soda. Mix in chips and toffee bits.

Drop by spoonfuls onto baking sheet.  I ended up with about 2 1/2 dozen. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.

Allow to cool on baking sheet for a minute or two before transferring to cooling rack.  You will want to use non-stick pans if possible as the toffee bits get a little sticky.   I transferred some of the cookies right away and as you can see by the photo below they started to sink into the cooling rack so try to allow a minute or so for them to cool before moving but don’t leave too long or the toffee will stick.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

I thought some cookies might be tasty today so I went with a chocolate cookie with peanut butter chips.  I like the way these came out; chewy and not too sweet.  I used butter today which tends to make a flatter cookie; if you like your cookies a bit fluffier butter flavored shortening might be a better choice.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

  • 1 square unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips

Melt chocolate and allow to cool.  Add softened butter and sugar to melted chocolate; cream together.  Mix in egg and vanilla.  Combine flour and baking soda; stir into creamed mixture.  Stir in peanut butter chips.  Drop by spoonfuls onto baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 – 9 minutes.  Makes about 15 – 16 cookies.

Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

Thought I would try a new peanut butter dessert.  I didn’t want to make a giant batch so I opted to scale down a recipe and make brownie bites using my mini muffin pan. This made 24 little treats; enough to share and enjoy all week. They came out a bit like a cross between a brownie and a cookie; a bit more chocolate might be good or maybe a fudgy icing if you desire. Great flavor though just as they are!
