Nothing beats chocolate and peanut butter in cookies! I love how the some-what salty peanut butter combines with the sweetness of the chocolate chips.
These peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are a wonderful treat for Snickers bar lovers – it’s made of 2 different kinds of dough (both very easy to make), and has so much chocolate and peanut butter inside! These chocolate chip cookies are a melt-in-your-mouth decadent treat that is also great for Christmas.

- Peanut butter dough: in a large bowl mix peanut butter, sugar and egg until slightly sticky dough forms.

- Chocolate dough: in a bowl of a mixer with a paddle-attachment put butter, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and salt and blend at high speed until the mixture is soft and creamy.
- Scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula and add egg. Blend mixture until it is absorbed.
- Add flour, cocoa and baking soda and mix just until the large clumps of dough form.

- Preheat oven to 170c degrees and line an oven tray with baking paper.
- Form 2 types of dough into small balls of similar size. Merge 2 balls together to create a cookie and put on the pan. Decorate with leftover Snickers bar.

- Keep the cookies in an airtight container up to one week.
