Incredible Edible Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

If you like Reese's cups, then there are no words to describe how wonderful these cookies are.  They make a large batch, which is a good thing, because people tend to eat about four per person when these are served.


2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/4 cups (2-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine , softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) REESE'S Peanut Butter Chips


Heat oven to 350°F. 
 Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; set aside.
 Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until fluffy. 
Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. 
 Gradually add flour mixture, beating well. Stir in peanut butter chips. 
Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 9 minutes. (Do not overbake; cookies will be soft. They will puff while baking and flatten while cooling.) 
Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. 
About 4-1/2 dozen cookies.

PAN RECIPE: Spread batter in greased 15-1/2x10-1/2x1-inch jelly-roll pan. Bake at 350°F 20 minutes or until set. Cool completely in pan on wire rack; cut into bars. About 4 dozen bars.
ICE CREAM SANDWICHES: Prepare CHEWY CHOCOLATE COOKIES as directed; cool. Press small scoop of vanilla ice cream between flat sides of cookies. Wrap and freeze.

These really, truly are one of our absolute favorite cookies ever. We hope you enjoy! FYI- we tried using just 2 sticks of butter once. While they were still good, they weren't as amazing.

Happy Munching!
