Sometimes I get in a baking slump. Despite my best of intentions, my list of recipe ideas or saved recipes to try just don’t sound appealing. Anyone else have this problem? When I get that way, I try to focus on baking with my favorite flavors. My current slump had me turning to my favorite flavor combination – chocolate and peanut butter.
And, we’re talking chocolate and peanut butter in a big way.
You see, these cookies may be small but they pack a lot of flavor. Both peanuts and chocolate are present in three ways each. There’s peanut butter, honey roasted peanuts, peanut butter cups, semisweet chocolate, and milk chocolate. Oh, yeah.
You’ll get crunch from the peanuts, extra peanut flavor with the peanut butter in the dough, two kinds of chocolate chips, plus peanut butter cups. Be sure to go mini for the peanut butter cups. I used Reese’s unwrapped minis, but I might have preferred the smaller size of Trader Joe’s mini peanut butter cups if I’d had any on-hand.
The recipe makes a big batch of cookies, so be sure you have some friends handy who’ll be willing to take some of these off your hands. Otherwise, you may be in big trouble if left alone with all this deliciousness.

Looks great. Love all the flavor levels!! Can’t wait to make these!!
Must have these!!
I’m addicted to chocolate and peanut butter! These cookies look great Jennifer! 🙂
ooooh I love that these pb choc chip cookies include peanuts!!!!
I like the way you think! There is so much to love about these cookies!
I totally hear you on the slump thing. I have so many recipes that I want to try already bookmarked, but every once in awhile I’ll just look at them all and think “meh”. When that happens, like you, I’ll go back to basics. This sounds like a great combination of favourite flavours. I’m especially intrigued by the addition of honey roasted peanuts!
I’d hardly call this a slump! So creative with the peanuts, peanut butter, and different chocolates!
Ugh, you have no idea how much these are calling to my pregnant belly! If only I kept peanut butter cups in the house, I would be making these RIGHT NOW.
Came home from work yesterday and HAD to make these…impossible to resist! I have to say I love the recipe and unless someone says they aren’t as much fun to eat as they are to make (really don’t expect that!!!) I can’t imagine NOT making them often to share with my groups. Love how pretty they bake up and come together. And the recipe makes a good batch to share!! Thanks Jennifer. Your slump is our reward!
I wouldn’t mind if you shipped me some of these.
So these are pretty much a sextuple threat! I love it.
My second love, yummmy cakes. There are only missing my favorite milk!
These are very good cookies.
I used salted peanuts and doubled the amount called for. Other than that, I used the recipe as is and the cookies turned out great.
Whenever I bake with peanut butter cups, I cut them in half, and then freeze them for half an hour before using them. I find that they don’t mush up when stirring and blending them into the other ingredients.
My husband called these wicked good. How can you go wrong with cookies including honey roasted peanuts and mini peanut butter cups? Along with all the other goodies? I must say I’ve never made cookies before where I kept remarking, “Gosh, these smell delicious,” and they were still in the mixer being beaten. They came out looking just like bakery cookies. I used a scoop, but they really kept their shape in the oven. Another winner! Thanks for sharing. I’m sending some to a neighbor and the rest to my husband’s office. It made exactly 60 cookies. I did use the Trader Joe’s mini peanut butter cups.
I’m so glad you liked them, Jeanne! There’s a lot of good stuff in there! 🙂
