Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites

Yum

Happy Chocolate Peanut Butter Day! Let’s celebrate with these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies that I turned into mini cookie bites.


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites for Chocolate Peanut Butter Day

It’s baaa-aaack! The second annual Chocolate Peanut Butter Day, hosted by me along with my totally awesome co-host Miriam of Overtime Cook. Last year, we decided that a day dedicated to recipes featuring our favorite chocolate and peanut butter pairing needed to happen, so we picked March 25, invited our blogger friends to join in, and had a blast. I made Buckeye Cheesecake Bars to celebrate. Back by popular demand, we are once again bringing you a long list of chocolate peanut butter recipe ideas for you to make, not just today but every day of the year. I was actually a bit indecisive with what recipe to make as I kept bouncing between several cookie ideas. After seeing how popular my Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie Bites were, I wanted to do a spinoff of them with these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites. I think the only thing better than a warm chocolate chip cookie is a warm peanut butter chocolate chip cookie in bite-size form. I’m not going to talk about how many I ate, but I will say when I shared them, they disappeared pretty quickly. If you’re in the market for a crowd pleasing cookie that takes very little time to prepare, you don’t want to miss this recipe.

Chocolate and peanut butter has been my favorite flavor combination since forever. Growing up, peanut butter cups were probably my favorite candy. Ironically my mom doesn’t like peanut butter, so we didn’t have too many peanut butter desserts growing up. If I did make something with peanut butter, I usually had to make an alternative for her to enjoy. Thank goodness I get my food genes from my dad.

What I love most about this recipe is that they make enough to share with a crowd without going overboard on the ingredient amounts. Even though I’m all about small serving sizes, sometimes you just need to bake something up for a gathering or a potluck. These cookie bites are very easy to transport and can also be mailed if you know someone who could use a sweet surprise.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup (2 ounces or 4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease two 24-cup mini muffin pans with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the peanut butter, butter, brown sugar, and sugar until light and creamy, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla for 1 minute. Gradually beat in the flour mixture and chocolate chips.
  4. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls (roughly 1 tablespoon each) then add to each muffin cup. Smooth out the dough so it completely fills the cup (they won't spread when baking).
  5. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and set. Cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes then carefully remove from the pan. Cool completely on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

  1. Awesome little cookies Carla! Thanks so much to you and Miriam for hosting this wonderful flavor combo day again.

  2. you can never go wrong with a cookie! I’m in complete denial that your mom doesn’t like peanut butter. I mean, how can she possibly hate one of the world’s best foods?! ;)

  3. These will be perfect for when we go walking on the weekend!

  4. Happy Peanut Butter Day! These look so tasty. The perfect celebratory snack.

  5. Thank you so much for hosting the most delicious day of the year! I am all about mini food, so I can eat more…you better believe I will be eating ALL of these!

  6. These cookies look amazing! Thanks for hosting with me! Yay for the best food pairing ever!

  7. I would be happy to gobble down more than my fair share of these cookie bites! Thanks for hosting this yummy event, Carla!

  8. I had chocolate peanut butter oatmeal this morning but my stomach is rumbling at the sight of these! You are indeed right in thinking that ” the only thing better than a warm chocolate chip cookie is a warm peanut butter chocolate chip cookie in bite-size form”!!!

  9. Chocolate and peanut butter is the best combo ever! I would NOT be trusted around these… they look so good, they’d be gone in a flash :)

  10. Oh, my fiance would love me forever if I made these for him — peanut butter cookies are his favorite!

  11. These are adorable! Love that you baked them in a mini muffin pan! Thanks for hosting this fabulous day again. :)

  12. These are perfect little bites with big flavors, Carla! I’m guessing that I could not stop at just one. Thanks so much for hosting this fabulous event!

  13. It’s funny as much as I love cookies I tend to be single minded about it and always bake them on cookie sheets. It rarely occurs to me to make cookie bars or cups like these. Probably because they’d be too dangerous in poppable form, especially when it comes to peanut butter and chocolate!

  14. These cookie bites wouldn’t last long in my house! Love them!

  15. def. a crowd pleaser!!! DELISH!!

  16. Yummy! I will be here all day checking out all the recipes and links.

  17. Thankfully, I’m always “in the market for a crowd pleasing cookie that takes very little time to prepare”! Thank you so much for co-hosting again this year, Carla. You and Miriam do so much work getting us organized – I really appreciate it! This is always such a fun event. And your cookie bites look incredibly delicious. I highly doubt I would share these with anybody!

  18. There is nothing mini about the flavor! Thanks for hosting, Carla!

  19. Little bites make them so much easier to DEVOUR!!

  20. Yummy! Peanut butter! Love them!

  21. I love the idea of little bites; I freeze batches of cookie already formed just for that reason; so I don’t eat them !!!

  22. What a great recipe. These are a perfect grab-and-go snack! Pinned.
