Michael's Peanut Butter Fudge Cookies

Monday, August 18, 2014


I have never seen my man eat cookies like he ate these. As someone who isn't really a fan of chocolate, I don't get it, but I whipped these up for him one night when he was all hungry and didn't know what he wanted, and he was obsessed. He may still be, but they are all gone. The girls at my work seemed to like them a lot too, so they must be good. The good news for you is that they are stupid simple to make, and won't take up a gross chunk of your time like a pie or something of the sort. These are sooooo easy. Please make them! I also just made up some blackberry fudge cookies, or blackberry brownie cookies...or something. I don't know what I'm calling them yet, but they're pretty much this recipe with mashed blackberries instead of peanut butter, and they were quite popular with M's co-workers last night. I never used to play with recipes at all, but now it's all I seem able to do in my free time! Tonight I'm making russian tea cakes with hazelnuts for a girl at my work. Should be fun. And, of course, I'll post the recipe, but onto this recipe!





::Ingredients::

-9 tbsp softened butter
-1 cup superfine sugar
-1 egg, lightly beaten
-1/2 tsp vanilla
-1 cup flour
-1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-heaping 1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter 


::Steps::

1. Preheat your oven to 350° and line two large cookie sheets (or whatever combination of cookie sheets you have) with parchment paper.

2. Beat together sugar and butter in a large bowl until fluffy and oddly appetizing for whipped sugar and butter, then add egg and vanilla and mix until smooth. Next, sift in flour, cocoa, and baking soda and beat until mixed.

3. Add your peanut butter into the mix and whip that all together until evenly mixed, then wet your hands and roll the batter into walnut-sized balls and plonk them down on the cookie sheets, well apart. Make sure to keep your hands wet or these will stick to you like nobody's business.

4. Bake for 11 minutes, or until cooked through (best to air on the side of slightly gooey than crunchy). Let cool and then enjoy! Or, eat as many as you can while they're still warm, which I highly suggest. <3

  1. These look so delicious, yet so simple! I'm pretty sure I have all of those ingredients in my cabinet. The best kind of recipes are the ones that don't require you to go to the store!

  2. Yum! These look so good I wish I had a few to eat right now. I absolutely love chocolate and peanut butter, but the blackberry and chocolate ones sound amazing too!

    PS: Just discovered your adorable blog and am looking forward to browsing for a bit!
