Chocolate Peanut butter cookie on a chopping board

When it comes to comfort food, I’m a pro. In fact, my partner loves baking and always comes up with new and exciting recipes all the time. Like these chocolate marble peanut butter cookies! They can be known as chocolate peanut butter cookies but I like to have fun with them.

Peanut butter cookies are big comfort food in our home. Whenever someone is going through it, they are made. The last time there was a death in the family my partner ended up making several batches! They’re the best cookie comfort food for sure.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I will say, it’s important as to what ingredients you use. I know a lot of people are on a budget so you don’t have to spend a fortune on them. We got a new cookie chocolate spread from Aldi for £2 and it tasted amazing!

I find that if you want decent peanut butter cookies, you don’t want cheap ingredients otherwise it can taste a little bitter and the cookies just fall flat. Plus you want comfort food that tastes amazing right?

Peanut butter cookies can be a bit boring, so why not add chocolate? You can also buy white chocolate spread as well so maybe change it up a little if you love white chocolate.

ChocolatePeanut Butter Cookies Recipe Tips

When it comes to these marble peanut butter cookies you want to make sure the mixture is well combined before you add the chocolate element, otherwise, it just turned into chocolate cookies and that’s not what we want.

You want to marble the chocolate through the mixture but don’t overdo it. It’s also important not to overdo the process of rolling the balls otherwise it all mixes together before it even bakes!

If you have any peanut butter cookies tips, let me know in the comments. I like to use an ice cream scoop to get the same amount of mixture each time so the cookies are all the same size, although not everyone likes that.

Equipment You Should Use!

As with every recipe, there’s equipment that you should really use for maximum efficiency! Check out some affiliate links below of the kitchen equipment that I use. In my opinion some of these bits, every baker needs!

Slimming World Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

These are by no means slimming world peanut butter cookies. However, I do a lot of slimming world recipes on my website so I thought it would be important to include the syns for peanut butter cookies!

One of these cookies is 9 syns, not so bad when you actually enjoy them. Just don’t do what I do and eat the whole tub in one go! However, they will keep for a few days in an airtight container to keep them safe and sound in a cake tin.

The Best Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

This batch makes around 12 cookies, however in my opinion I think you should double the recipe! Make as many as you want, share them with neighbours, friends and family! Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried these and what you think about them!
