This easy 4 Ingredient Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe is the easiest and tastiest cookie I have made in quite some time. My family loves peanut butter cookies and our favorite 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookie that I shared with you last spring has been a cookie recipe we make VERY often. If we are craving a quick cookie for dessert they are perfect. This past weekend we were considering making our Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies but I really did not have the extra time to make a longer recipe. So, I got to thinking about adding chocolate to our favorite 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies. I was not quite sure if it would work but, we were willing to give it a try.

So, I grabbed my Peanut Butter, Sugar, Egg and some baking cocoa and decided to test it out. I am amazed at how tasty they were and it only took one attempt to get them perfect. The Peanut Butter and the Chocolate blend was super tasty!
This Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe is going to be perfect for serving up through the holidays. Plus, I think everyone would enjoy a batch at my moms group for a gift too! I think we will toss them in a jar with some ribbon and we will have a quick, easy and inexpensive gift.
I even woke in the middle of the night craving another batch of these cookies with a glass of milk. I know it isn’t good to be eating and then sleeping but these cookies were so tasty that I couldn’t sleep with out enjoying a couple more, ha ha!
