Salted Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Easy Salted Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies l

I had the entire morning to bake yesterday and since I never know when the house will have a showing, I took advantage of it!

There were quite a few recipes that I wanted to get through, but first I had to make these cookies. They aren’t just any cookies. They are salted chocolate peanut butter chip cookies.

Salted chocolate peanut butter chip cookies that make a minimal mess, have a minimal cooking time, and require minimal effort to eat! I knew I had to share them right away so I wouldn’t forget!

I made these cookies at 8:00 in the morning and had to hide them away as soon as they cooled because they smelled so good!

I can’t resist chocolate and peanut butter as it is, but sprinkle on some sea salt and these cookies are irresistible!

I managed to only eat one since I figured having only cookies for breakfast wouldn’t be the best way to start off my day. But, hey, if you choose to do that, no judgement here!

Salted Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies Recipe l

The base of the cookies is a soft, rich chocolate cookie. Sweet peanut butter chips are stirred in to offset the rich chocolate and give them that classic combination.

If you’re a little wary of sprinkling sea salt on top of your cookies, you could always leave it off. However, I strongly recommend that you try it on at least a few of the cookies. You’d really be missing out on the sweet and salty combo!
