Do y’all just love everything that Ina Garten makes? I do! I was watching her show one morning and she made these cookies and I knew I had to try them.

Ina calls them Chocolate Peanut Butter Globs, but regardless of what you call them, they are a delightful mix of chocolate and peanut butter blended together.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies combine two of my most loved flavors—Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are my all-time favorite candy, so I will eat anything that resembles a Reese’s! And these cookies fit that bill perfectly.

They are a little crispy around the edges and chewy in the middle, with a deep chocolate flavor and a nice hint of peanut butter.

How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Ina melts the chocolate chips over simmering water, but I find that it works just as well to slowly melt the chocolate in the microwave. That’s probably anathema to a real chef, but as a home cook I do what works for me. I don’t add nuts either, but you certainly could if you like nuts in your cookies.

You can use a stand mixer or just a hand mixer and these cookies come together in mere minutes. So easy and just the right combination of peanut butter chips and semi-sweet chocolate. You will love them!
