Kess's Chocolate Chunk Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

In honor of our beloved Kess who turned 9 yesterday, I came up with a cookie that combines her love (and mine) of chocolate and peanut butter, the combination of which is clearly one of the best inventions ever.


  • 1 cup butter (softened)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 1 cup chopped minature peanut butter cups (20 to be exact)
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  1. Mix sugars, vanilla, eggs and butter.
  2. Separately - mix flour, baking soda and water.
  3. Combine both sets of ingredients.
    Chop 20 minature Peanut Butter cups into six even pieces each.
  4. Add chopped peanut butter cups to mixture.
  5. Add chocolate chips and chunks.
  6. Mix well.

Bake at 375 for 12 minutes.
