I know this recipe as it is written in my book is old because it calls for a 12 ounce package of peanut butter chips. They only make 10 ounce packages anymore. You could just add in a few chocolate chips like I did to make up the difference. :)
1 cup butter (or any substitute like Butter Flavor Crisco)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2-3 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder (dark dutch processed)
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 package peanut butter chips
You will also need:
Stand mixer (unless you want to mix by hand - ugh!)
Spatula or spoonula
Medium "ice cream" scoop (if you have one)
In a small bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
With your stand mixer, cream together butter and sugars until fluffy. Add (room temperature if possible) eggs one at a time, mixing well with each addition. Add in vanilla and mix to combine.
Add the flour mixture in several stages mixing and scraping with a rubber scraper as you go until all the dry ingredients are fully incorporated. Mix in the peanut butter chips.
Cover and refrigerate for 3 - 4 hours until firm.
Make one-inch balls either by rolling with your hands or by using your scoop and place them on parchment paper on your cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes @ 350 F.
Yes, I realize they look like something that is not polite to talk about at the dinner table...
but they are OH. SO. GOOD!
