These cookies are quite possibly the best mixture of peanut butter and chocolate in a cookie that I have ever tasted.

The half cup of oatmeal adds a texture that complements the peanut butter and chocolate perfectly.


Chocolate chunks as opposed to chocolate chips make all the difference.  Its fun to chop up a chocolate bar and the freshly cut chocolate adds a boost of freshness that you just cannot achieve with chocolate chips.

Tips for these peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies:

  1. Do not overmix.  You want the dough to be light, not sticky.
  2. I used 4 regular sized Hershey milk chocolate bars chopped for the dough and an extra bar to put a square of chocolate on about half of the cookies.  The kids asked that I put the square on all of the cookies next time.  It really is good having a melting piece of chocolate on top of the cookie.

I would also recommend doubling this recipe.  My family of five cleared out the cookie jar in two days.

Enjoy! 🙂
