Easy Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I come from a long line of “stress eaters”.  As my stress increases, I find myself inching closer and closer to anything with chocolate, the higher the chocolate content, the better.  Lucky for me, I am usually so busy tending the children that I can curb these cravings.  However, having a very sick 3 year old (the flu – ick) proved too much for me.

It was 11 o’clock at night, I was worrying, and I needed cookies.  Sadly, there were no cookies in the house, so I got to baking.  These little gems are fantastic if you need cookies and you need them now.  They take only a handful of ingredients that you probably have on had.  Plus, they only took an hour from the first “I need a cookie” to my husband and I stuffing our faces with soft, chewy peanut butter-chocolaty goodness.

Easy Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
An Amy Original

1 family size box brownie mix
1 cup chunky peanut butter
2 eggs
¼ cup water
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Sea salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the brownie mix, peanut butter, eggs, and water until well combined.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Using a 2 tbsp scoop, drop dough balls onto the prepared sheets.  Pat down each dough ball into a disc using your fingers or the bottom of a glass.  Sprinkle each cookie with sea salt.

Bake 8-10 minutes or until the tops of the cookies are no longer shiny.  Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

  1. These look amazing. Right up our alley! I too, have a sick one (as of this morning) and I think the stress may get the better of me. These might do the trick! Your blog looks great, btw!

  2. Oh, and I am sure you have heard this, but there is a reason why "stressed" is just "desserts" spelled backwards! :)

  3. Oh I love this recipe! Easy cookies, who could complain about that one? I happen to be the opposite of you though, when stressed I can't eat, anything. :-(

  4. These sound so delicious Amy! I have several sick kids at my house too....which for us Moms mean tiresome days (and nights!). I would love one of these chocolate goodies about now-Yum!
