I made these at Christmas time of last year to put onto my cookies trays for co-workers and family - they have since become a favorite! Who can beat the combo of chocolate and peanut butter together?

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix granulated sugar, brown sugar, margarine, shortening, vanilla and eggs in large bowl (I use electric beater).
  3. Stir in flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt (mixture will be very thick).
  4. Stir in peanut butter chips and nuts.
  5. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2" apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  6. Bake 11-12 minutes minutes or until set.
  7. Cool slightly on sheets; remove from cookie sheets and finish cooling on wire racks.

I see this recipe was posted way back in 2005 - I just found it in 2013 - and it was a terrific find. I added a few more nuts, personal preference, but this is our current fav. Yummy!

Thanks so much for this great recipe. My 5yr old and I made these just now and they are soooo good. I followed the recipe and didnt make any changes. These are our new favorite cookie. Thanks again.
