Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies

5 stars from 1 rating of Loaded Peanut Butter Cookies

Loaded peanut butter cookies will do a happy dance in your mouth. They are tender, full of flavor and texture. They have peanut butter plus a serving of peanut butter pieces. Just when you think you have all of the flavor and texture you can imagine, here comes the chocolate. Topped with miniature chocolate kisses these are indeed a cookie that will become a favorite. This is an easy recipe that can be made with ingredients you may already have at home.

If you can stand the smell for two or three days, peanut butter is darn good shaving cream. Barry Goldwater

Now ...I would not have thought of this!!!

What Else Can I do with Peanut Butter?

Peanut butter as you know is a versatile food.

Creating this food was a boon to all of us.

  • Make your own ---I have even learned to make my own. Do not have it down to a perfect butter yet but am getting close. I used dry roasted nuts, unsalted, and a bit of peanut oil
  • Peanut butter pie....another favorite with high quality peanut butter, and, one I might add that should be against the law!!!! Sooo tasty.
  • Peanut butter on toast or bagels...of course you have had this....toast or bagel makes the peanut butter ooze all down its sides.

If someone tells you you're putting too much peanut butter on your bread, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

Good morning agvulpes... this was an experiment. I was not sure how tampering with an old recipe would work out Sometimes it yields little hockey pucks or little piles of mush In this case. I lucked out. My family is already asking when I will be baking them again and right now, plans are for December of this year. We will see if they will allow that. Thank you for stopping by on this fifth day of 2013. Sending Angels your way....:) ps

Oh wow like most of the other commentors I just love peanut butter but I have never thought of a mix with chocolate. The look absolutely tasteful and I can almost get the aroma from here in Australia :)

I will ask my wife to make me some of your Peanut Butter Cookies for sure :)

Good afternoon....this is actually a variation on a pb cookie that I used to make. I just thought adding the extra chips to it would make them that much more peanutty. I also decided to use the tiny kisses...and it worked. thanks for stopping by again.

Sending Angels to you and yours....:) ps

Thanks, Pamela. As I have mentioned to others, they are a great cookie when you have a little time. They also are a cookie that you can eat one of and be satisfied which is kind of nice.

thanks for stopping by, tipstoretireearly....

They are a great little cookie for a time when you want a slightly different twist on an old favorite and you don't want to spend hours in the kitchen. Make a bunch as they disappear quickly.

Sending Angels your way and wishing you a very Merry Christmas.

They look scrumptious! The only change I'd make would be to use full-size chocolate kisses instead of the miniatures. You can't have too much chocolate!

"A happy dance in your mouth"....LOL....great line and wonderful recipe. Peanut butter is one of my main food groups. No wonder I have ten extra pounds at my waist. :)

Thank you, PS, for a great year of friendship, and wishing many more for both of us.
