Now that you have gathered all the ingredients and equipment you’ll need, let’s get started on making these Chocolate Peanut Butter Blowout Cookies.

Step 1: Preheat and Line

Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Step 2: Mixing the Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, beat together 1/2 cup of butter softened, 1/2 cup of peanut butter, 1/4 cup of granulated sugar and 3/4 cup of brown sugar until light and creamy. Add in 1 large egg and 1 tablespoon of vanilla; mix again.

Then in a separate smaller bowl, whisk together the 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon salt, and 2 cups all-purpose flour. Gradually add this dry mixture to the butter-peanut butter mixture until it is well blended.

Fold in the 1 cup chocolate chips, the chopped up Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and the chopped up minis honey roasted peanuts into the dough.

Step 3: Rolling The Dough

Take about 2 tablespoons of dough and roll into balls. Place them about two inches apart on the prepared baking sheet. This makes about 24 cookie dough balls.

Step 4: Pressing The Dough

Flatten each ball slightly with your hands or using a fork to make crisscrossed marks on top of each cookie dough ball.

Step 5: Baking Time

Bake for around 10-15 minutes, depending on how big you rolled them. Check at around 10 minutes; if they are still too pale, leave them for an extra few minutes but keep an eye on them as they can burn easily.

Step 6: Cooling Duties

Once removed from the oven, allow cookies to cool on a wire rack so that air circulates around them evenly (for at least ten minutes).

These cookies are perfect for parties or sharing with friends! Enjoy this flavorful combination of peanut butter and chocolate with every bite.

If you love experimenting in the kitchen or are allergic to certain ingredients or want to add your own twist to the recipe, don’t worry because this recipe is very customizable. Let me walk you through some of the substitutions and variations that you can incorporate into the recipe.

Firstly, if you don’t have all-purpose flour on hand, you can use Whole Wheat Flour or Gluten-Free Flour as a substitute. However, keep in mind that substituting different types of flour might affect the texture of the cookies.

Secondly, if you’re not a fan of peanut butter or are allergic to nuts, you can swap out the peanut butter for almond butter, sunflower seed butter, pumpkin seed butter, or any other nut-free butter. You can also omit the honey-roasted peanuts from the recipe if you want.

Thirdly, if you’re looking for healthier versions of this recipe, you can reduce the amount of sugar by substituting white granulated sugar with coconut sugar or maple syrup. You can also interchange chocolate chips with dark chocolate chips to reduce the sugar content further.

Fourthly, adding dried fruits like raisins and cranberries would enhance the flavor of your cookies. You could also add coconut flakes for an extra crunch and sweetness.

Finally, if you’re looking for a vegan-friendly recipe, you can replace eggs with flax eggs (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water equals one egg) and use vegan chocolate chips.

Regardless of which substitution and variation route you take,some tweaks will work better than others; feel free to experiment in small batches before scaling up!

Remember – baking is an art and even small tweaks sometimes make a big difference. Use your creativity and make this Chocolate Peanut Butter Blowout Cookies Recipe your very own!

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Blowout Cookies are perfect to prepare in advance, whether you’re hosting a party or just looking to have a treat ready anytime. The good news is, they freeze exceptionally well, so you can make a big batch to always have on hand.

To make ahead, follow the recipe as directed and allow them to cool completely. Once cooled, place them in an airtight container separated by wax paper and store them in your freezer for up to two months.

When it’s time to serve, take the cookies you need out of the freezer and let them defrost at room temperature for about an hour before serving. Although these cookies are best served fresh out of the oven, reheating them is easy. Just pop them onto a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for about 3-5 minutes until warm and gooey.

Storing the cookies correctly is key to maintaining their texture and flavor over time. Keep them at room temperature in an airtight container for up to five days. You may also refrigerate them for up to seven days but be aware that storing them at cold temperatures may harden the cookies.

Don’t let your Chocolate Peanut Butter Blowout Cookies go dry! Tightly wrap them in plastic wrap or aluminum foil before storing to keep their moisture locked in. And if you see some leftover cookies starting to get stale or dry, don’t worry – just give them a quick zap in the microwave or toaster oven and enjoy once again a freshly baked and delicious treat.

Tips for Perfect Results

The fun and messy process of making these cookies will have you feeling like a kid again.

If you want to bake the perfect chocolate peanut butter blowout cookies, here are a few tips that can help you achieve the best results every time.

First and foremost, make sure that all your ingredients are fresh and clean. Baking with stale or expired ingredients can impact the final result of your recipes. This is especially important when it comes to baking soda, which needs to be active in order for the cookies to rise properly.

Another crucial tip for getting perfect blowout cookies is to make sure that you have properly measured all of your ingredients, especially the flour. Too much flour can make your cookies hard and dense, while too little can cause them to spread out too much and become flat.

Additionally, be sure to chill your dough for at least 30 minutes or even overnight before baking. This allows the dough to rest and firm up, making it easier to scoop and shape into evenly sized balls.

When it comes time to bake your cookies, one trick for ensuring even cooking is to rotate the cookie sheet halfway through baking. This helps the cookies bake evenly all around and avoids overbrowning on one side.

If you’re looking for that classic peanut butter flavor in every bite of these blowout cookies, consider using honey roasted peanuts or adding some extra peanut butter to the recipe. You can also experiment with different types of chocolate chips, such as Reese’s peanut butter cups or mini chocolate chips for a twist on this classic cookie recipe.

By following these tips and making some small adjustments where necessary, you’ll be able to impress your friends and family with perfectly baked chocolate peanut butter blowout cookies every time.


As you prepare these irresistible Blowout Cookies, you may come across a few questions in the process. Below, we have compiled some of the most frequently asked questions concerning this recipe to provide you with useful information and handy tips so that you can bake faultlessly every time. So, let’s go ahead and explore some FAQ regarding this dessert treat!

Why do you put fork marks on peanut butter cookies?

Have you ever wondered why some peanut butter cookies have criss-cross marks on top? Well, it’s not just for decoration! The reason behind it is that peanut butter is a dense ingredient that can cause the cookies to bake unevenly. By making fork marks on the dough, the heat is able to spread evenly throughout the cookie, resulting in a perfectly baked treat. So, next time you make peanut butter cookies, be sure to add those hash marks on top!

How do you keep peanut butter cookies from falling apart?

When making cookie dough, it’s important not to overmix the ingredients. Specifically, you should only cream the butter and sugar for about 1-2 minutes and avoid leaving the mixer running unattended. Overmixing can whip excess air into the dough, which can cause the cookies to collapse when baked. As someone who enjoys baking myself, I know it can be tempting to keep beating the mixture and walk away, but it’s important to exercise restraint.

Why do my peanut butter cookies get hard?

If your peanut butter cookies have come out hard, it’s quite possible that you may have baked them for too long. Ideally, they should not be left in the oven for more than 8 to 9 minutes to get the perfect texture. It’s important to keep an eye on the baking time and take them out promptly to achieve soft, melt-in-your-mouth cookies.

Why do we flatten peanut butter cookies?

Using a fork is an essential step when making peanut butter cookies due to the dough’s dense consistency. By flattening the dough with a fork, it is possible to achieve the perfect shape and even thickness, ensuring a uniform baking process. This technique is crucial for baking delicious peanut butter cookies with a chewy and soft texture.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, this Chocolate Peanut Butter Blowout Cookies recipe is a delightful treat that combines the best of two worlds – chocolate and peanut butter. It’s perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth and indulging in a decadent dessert.

With its easy-to-follow instructions, ingredient substitutions, pairing recommendations, make-ahead tips, and storing instructions, this recipe is a must-try for baking enthusiasts of all levels. So the next time you need a recipe that will impress your friends or family, give these cookies a try.
