Chocolate Peanut Butter Candy Cookies

Peanut butter, chocolate and candy give chewy cookies real kid appeal.


30 servings


1/2 cup granulated (white) sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup chocolate-flavored or regular peanut butter (from 14-ounce jar)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups (about 12 ounces) orange, yellow and brown candy-coated peanut butter candies


Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Line baking sheet with cooking parchment paper or silicone baking mat.

In large bowl, beat sugars and butter with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Beat in peanut butter, vanilla and egg. Stir in flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Stir in candies. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto baking sheet.

Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until edges are set (centers will be soft). Cool 1 minute; remove from baking sheet to wire cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Additional Information

If you don't have cooking parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, spray baking sheet with cooking spray or grease with shortening.

Be sure the baking sheets are cool before placing dough on them. A warm baking sheet will cause the cookies to spread.

For great looking cookies, add a few extra candies to the scoop of dough after placing it on the baking sheet.
