Here is a chocolaty twist on a traditional favorite peanut butter cookie. The cookies will come out of the oven flatter than you would expect, but the insides stay chewy and the outer edges are crispy – the perfect texture combination to the sweet & salty of the chocolate and peanut butter!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
8 oz of Jif Whipped Peanut Butter and Chocolate Spread
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. On parchment lined baking sheets, drop mixture by heaping teaspoons, since the cookies will spread make sure there is sufficient room between them (I suggest only baking 6 to 8 at a time to ensure they don’t bake together). Bake 8 minutes, the cookies will crack and show the chocolate through. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes, and then remove and cool completely on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
