Chunky Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookies

There is no better combination than peanut butter and chocolate, so why not combine them with these Chunky Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookies from Meridien.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
 
INGREDIENTS:
(Makes 22 cookies)

  • 120g butter
  • 200g coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 250g Self Raising Flour
  • 250g milk chocolate roughly chopped
  • 130g crunchy rich roast Meridian peanut butter
METHOD:
  • Heat the oven to 170C.
  • Melt the butter and set aside to cool for a moment. In a large bowl, stir together the sugar and butter, until combined. Add the egg and yolk and continue to mix.
  • Fold in the flour and when combined fold in ¾ of the chocolate. Briefly stir through ¾ of the peanut butter, leaving swirls visible.
  • Use a tbsp measure to scoop dollops of mixture onto 2 or 3 non-stick baking sheets, making sure you leave plenty of room for them to expand when they cook. 
  • Poke a clean finger into each cookie to make a well in the centre and drizzle in a little of the remaining peanut butter. Then dot a few pieces of the remaining chocolate over the top of each.
  • Bake the biscuits for 15 mins until they are cooked at the edges but still soft in the middle. Allow to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet then transfer to a baking rack.  Keep them in an airtight tin.
