Giant Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies for 2

A recipe that yields two huge & chewy chocolate cookies jam-packed with creamy peanut butter, peanut butter cups and chocolate chunks. The only thing better than a regular chocolate chip cookie is a GIANT chocolate cookie!

Can we dive right in? I made us cookies. Here’s how the story of the giant chocolate cookie came to be. My hubby and I were craving cookies on Friday night and don’t ask me how, but there were none to be found. Anywhere. And it was one of those deals where we neeeeded our cookie fix RIGHT NOW. So after analyzing the situation, I realized that no ordinary cookie would do. A major desperation could only be remedied by giant ooey gooey cookie-awesomeness.

And let’s be honest, nobody eats just one cookie at a time. At least nobody I know. So I saved you the trouble of having to go back for more.

I know – we were just as excited.

Since a giant cookie is um, giant, I figured there was enough room to stuff it with all of our favorite cookie add-ins. Loads of chocolate, chocolate chips and chunks, peanut butter and peanut butter cups.

I am sure you can tell which cookie belonged to whom. I added sprinkles to mine and omitted the “girly” stuff from my man’s cookie per request. Apparently pink is not his color :).

This recipe is prepared in one bowl with no chilling time required. It takes almost exactly 20 minutes from start to taking your first bite. Simple as can be. More delicious than ever.

Also, totally customizable. The perfect cookie to help you get rid of those small amounts of chocolate chips or whatever else you might have leftover in your pantry.

I loved everything about my cookie. It had the perfect thickness, the right amount of pb & chocolate, was chewy in the middle and crispy on the outside, and just the right size, ha!

Even though I wouldn’t change a thing about these cookies, I can’t wait to get back into the kitchen and create more extra large cookies. The possibilities are truly endless.

I wouldn’t mind if Giant Cookies became a Friday night tradition. Or how about a weekly Monday afternoon treat? Yes and yes :).

Have a sweet Monday!

  5. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  6. 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  7. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  9. 3 tablespoons cocoa powder

  11. 2 tablespoons semi-sweet chocolate chips
  12. 2 tablespoons chocolate chunks
  13. 2 tablespoons mini peanut butter cups
  14. sprinkles, optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. 1. In a medium bowl, cream together butter, granulated and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla and stir until fully incorporated. Next, mix in peanut butter and stir well.
  3. 2. Add salt, baking soda, and cocoa powder and keep stirring until mostly incorporated. Add flour and combine until a smooth dough forms. Dough should be slightly sticky.
  4. 3. Fold in chocolate chips and chunks as well as mini peanut butter cups.
  5. 4. Divide dough in half and form into cookie shapes - flattening the tops lightly with your hands. Add sprinkles, if desired, and place in the oven. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until cookies are done. Remove from the oven and let rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Enjoy cookies warm or transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Notes
  1. Cookies will keep up to 5 days stored in an airtight container or up to 3 months in the freezer.
  2. I started out mixing the dough with a fork and switched to a rubber spatula once I started adding the dry ingredients.

  1. A cookie the size of my face?! I love it. And I’m really not sure what could be better.

  2. Oh my goodness! I bet I could eat this in 2 bites. Just kidding. I’d nibble it slowly and savor every bite. 🙂
    Have a beautiful Monday!

    • Haha. Thank you, Melanie. I tried taking the biggest bite I possibly could (seen in the first picture) and barely made a dent. I’d be amazed if you could finish one of these in two bites :). I guess it depends on how hungry/desperate you are for cookies :).

  3. I know a very sweets loving 6 year old who will destroy this cookie in a second. My daughter is going to love these.

  4. These are the prettiest cookies ever! I love how huge these are Kathi! What gorgeous photos and great recipe. Pinned!

    • Right?? I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the oven and saw these cookies for the first time. Pure bliss. Thank you, Julie!

  9. HOLY PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE YUM. I might have to double the recipe, because I feel like I could eat this whole batch alone!

    • HA! That sounds like a great idea, Erin! I guess it’d be good to make a double batch, so you can still share, but end up with two cookies – one for each hand. A genius idea, really. Thank you so much for stopping by!!

  10. This might be the one time where I really could eat “just one” cookie. I LOVE that these are so huge!They look awesome (I love the sprinkles on yours)!

  11. Incredible! I could dive right into one of these cookies! Love the fun pink sprinkles. Pinned so that I can keep drooling 🙂

    • HA! Thanks, Ashley and thank you also for pinning. These cookies were really yummy – just like everything else that contains pb & chocolate!

  12. Oh my, how perfect! Except…I don’t have to share, do I?

  13. Oh my goodness, these look incredible Kathi! I love chocolate and peanut butter together and giant cookies would surely satisfy any chocolate lover’s craving – totally pinning 🙂

  14. is it wrong that I consider this a serving for ONE. because, uhh, I’m not sharing this baby with anybody!

  15. These look amazing Kathi!
    It’s always hard just eating one cookie:D So, we’ll eat two? 😛
