Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies for Two

The other night while Nate was in class I was in the mood to make some delicious treat. I was scouring through different recipes trying to find something I could make. But I was also looking for an excuse to make something – you see Monday night was the finale of Bachelorette (do any of you watch?! What were your thoughts?) and so we bought a bunch of snacks to eat while watching the show. So our house is filled with donuts, skittles, klondike bars, and chips. We didn’t exactly need anymore junk food in our house.

But do you ever just get the craving to bake? Of course I want to enjoy the treats I make, but sometimes I just want to try making something new. And this was one of those nights. Finally after debating over making either key lime cupcakes or oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, I decided I could make these cookies instead.

Peanut butter Chocolate Chip Cookies for Two

A few months ago I made my chocolate chip cookies for two, so why not try a peanut butter version. Peanut butter cookies are to die for, and when you add chocolate chips? One of the best combinations ever. So to settle my dilemma of wanting to bake, but also not wanting to fill our house with even more treats, I would make cookies for two.

Peanut butter Chocolate Chip Cookies for Two

This recipe, like the chocolate chip cookies for two recipe makes just 4 cookies. They are a little big, so you could probably make 6, if you really want to.

Peanut butter Chocolate Chip Cookies for Two

This is the perfect way to kill your sweet tooth craving, but not to overwhelm yourself with a couple dozen cookies left on your counter that just need to be eaten! I’m not very good at sharing with my neighbors, mostly cause I forget, so we end up freezing cookie dough a lot, or eating lots of cookies ourselves. Now I can just whip these cookies up and enjoy a delicious peanut buttery, chocolate cookie and then be done with it.

Perfect.

    This is SO amazing! This is the second time I’m making them – though it needs a couple more minutes in my finicky oven, but it is the PERFECT easy to make, quick dessert. Can’t wait to check out the rest of the recipes on the blog.

    I’ve made these and they were soooo good! If I wanted to omit the peanut butter, would I have to add anything additional to the recipe, such as more butter?

    1. Kimberly, I’m so glad you liked them! I actually have a chocolate chip cookies for two recipe if you want to try it, but basically its the same without the peanut butter, the texture is a little different. Here’s the recipe though :) http://lmld.org/2014/11/17/fried-apple-rings/

  4. Mine are in the oven now. The dough was delicious so I can’t wait to taste the final product!

    1. Hope you like them as much as I do!

  5. These are awesome!!! I live in an apartment with one other person and these are an easy way to have just enough dessert for both of us :)They are easy to make, taste great, and you can make them with what’s in your pantry!

    1. So glad you like them! Aren’t they the best? You’ll have to try some of our other cookies for two versions and let me know what you think!

    Such a great idea with ingredients that I always have on hand! I love that it’s just 4 cookies at a time so I’m not tempted by a whole platter of cookies on the counter. These look awesome!

  11. I love this idea of making cookies for two! I am like you – sometimes I just want to bake! And I definitely have no self control around cookies, so this recipe is perfect for me :)
