Ingredients

  • 2

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2

    teaspoons baking soda

  • 8

    tablespoons of salted butter, melted and cooled

  • 6

    tablespoons of creamy peanut butter, melted and cooled

  • 1

    cup brown sugar

  • 1/2

    cup sugar

  • 1

    egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature

  • 2

    teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2

    cups chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Add butter and peanut butter to a microwave safe bowl, and heat in 30 second increments until melted. Let cool completely. Mix the flour and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. In another bowl, mix the cooled butter/peanut butter and sugars until they are combined. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and stir until mixed. Gradually add flour and mix until a dough forms – it will look crumbly at first, but it will come together. I even used my hands to bring it all together. If necessary, add 1-2 teaspoons of milk, but I did not need this. Fold in chocolate chips. Shape the dough into a ball the size of a golf ball. Place on a baking sheet two inches apart and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are slightly brown. The centers should be soft and puffy. Do not over bake. Let cool completely then dig in!
