What You Need

You only need a handful of basic ingredients (most of which you probably already have in your kitchen!), plus a packet of Reese’s peanut butter chips to make these delicious chocolate chip and peanut butter chip cookies!

Note: Scroll to the recipe card at the bottom for the ingredients quantities and full detailed method.

Butter – use butter softened to room temperature. You can use either salted butter or unsalted butter to make these cookies.

Brown sugar – this not only adds flavour to the cookies but gives them a soft chewy texture.

Caster sugar – also known as superfine sugar. This creates a cookie that is crunchy on the outside.

Vanilla extract – or vanilla bean paste.

Peanut butter – I recommend using smooth and creamy peanut butter for the best results.

Salt – if using salted butter, then leave out the added salt.

Egg – I use large sized eggs, weighing approx. 60 each.

Plain flour – also known as all-purpose flour.

Baking powder – to create a light cookie.

Reese’s peanut butter chips – these peanut butter chips can be found at most supermarkets.

Chocolate chips – either milk chocolate or dark chocolate chips. I like to use Cadbury baking chips.

Equipment Required 

Electric beaters, stand mixer or Thermomix.

Two baking trays lined with baking paper.

Oven – I use a fan-forced oven. If using a conventional oven, increase the temperature by 10-20 degrees celsius.

Step By Step Instructions

These Reese’s peanut butter chocolate chip cookies could not be easier to make – just beat, roll, and bake!

Note: Scroll to the recipe card at the bottom for the ingredients quantities and full detailed method.

Step 1 – Cream Butter And Sugars

Preheat the oven. Grease and line two baking trays with baking paper.

Add the softened butter, brown sugar, caster sugar and vanilla extract to a bowl and beat until pale and fluffy. 

Step 2 – Stir In The Peanut Butter

Add the peanut butter and salt and beat until the peanut butter is completely mixed in. 

Step 3 – Add The Egg

Add the egg and beat until well combined. 

Step 4 – Add The Dry Ingredients

Slowly add the sifted plain flour and baking powder.

Continue to beat until well combined:

Step 5 – Add Peanut Butter Chips And Chocolate Chips

Gently stir in the Reese’s peanut butter chips and chocolate chips, mixing until just combined.

Step 6 – Bake

Roll the mixture into balls and place onto the prepared trays. Leave a gap between the balls to allow room for the cookies to spread.

Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes or until lightly golden.

Leave the cookies to cool on the trays for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Expert Tips

Don’t over-mix the dough – this will result in dense cookies.

Line the baking trays with baking paper – to prevent them from sticking to the tray.

Leave a gap in-between the balls of cookie dough – the cookies will spread when baked.

The warm cookies are very fragile fresh from the oven – leave the cookies to cool on the trays for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

Storage – store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.
