What’s For Dessert? Chocolate Peanut Butter Chunk Cookies!

These are so so yummy. I got this recipe from a lady in my ward at church and just love it! I adapted it only in the fact that I use chunks of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in place of the chocolate chips (although I use some of those as well!) 😀 Oh, and the recipe calls for butter, making it a ‘With Electricity’ recipe. However, you could use all shortening to make it completely shelf stable if you wanted. Enjoy!!

  • 1/3 cup butter (softened)
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs (4 Tbsp egg powder + 1/2 cup water)
  • 1 ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • approximately 12 oz Reese’s peanut butter chunks (or make your own from peanut butter cups)
  • approximately 4 oz mini chocolate chips


  1. Cream together the butter, shortening and sugars. Mix in the eggs and vanilla.
  2. Add the flour, soda and salt. Mix well.
  3. Add in the Reese’s chunks and mini chocolate chips. Mix to combine.
  4. Scoop rounded spoonfuls and form into a ball. Place on a greased cookie sheet about 1-2” apart.
  5. Bake at 350º F for 11-13 minutes, or until the cookies just barely start to turn brown.
  6. Cool and Enjoy!

Note: These also make killer regular chocolate chip cookies. Just replace the peanut butter chunks with regular chocolate chips (and omit the mini chips).
