The other day I needed some quick cookies so I made these delicious peanut butter cookies that are so small they are like little peanut butter bites. I added some chocolate chips to give them a chocolatey flavor and loved how they turned out. They kind of reminded me of peanut butter cups! They turned out to be the best kind of sweet nibble because they were so tiny. I only ate two and was totally happy. It was so much easier than eating two or three gigantic cookies! Consider making these sweet treats for your next get together.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch kosher salt
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.
3. Cream the butter, sugars and peanut butter in an electric mixer. Add in the egg and vanilla. Then turn the mixer to low and slowly add in the flour until just incorporated. Finally, stir in the chocolate chips with a wooden spoon.
4. Form the dough into large balls the size of golf balls and roll them in the granulated sugar. Press them down slightly with a fork to make checkerboard marks. Bake them for about 12 minutes or until they are set and the edges are slightly golden.
