A chunky Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe with even more chunk--from chocolate! If you love chocolate and peanut butter, these cookies are for you. A combo of dark and milk chocolate, plus a peanut crunch makes these cookies the best!


  • 1 ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 ½ cup chunky peanut butter
  • ⅓ cup whole milk
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 7 ounce dark chocolate (60% cocoa+), chopped
  • 11 ounce package milk chocolate morsels


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugars with peanut butter until fully mixed, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  2. Add milk, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until combined.
  3. Add in flour, salt, baking powder, and cornstarch, just until cookie dough combines. Do not overbeat.
  4. Fold in chopped chocolate chunks and morsels.
  5. Drop by large tablespoon onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Use a fork to make criss-cross marks on top of each cookie.
  6. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10-13 minutes. Remove and cool completely!


  • Use parchment paper. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper first for easy clean up!
  • Freezing dough. Make the dough ahead of time, then freeze the cookie dough balls on the baking sheet. Once solid, transfer to a freezer bag and store for up to 3 months. When you're ready to bake them, you can put them in the oven frozen. Just add a few more minutes of baking time.
  • White chocolate variation. Swap the dark chocolate for white chocolate for a sweet twist.
