I think this recipe earns 5 stars with the following changes: To the chocolate mixture add... 1/2 t. baking powder 1 T. water 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips I added a little extra peanut butter allowing it to heap over the side of the measuring cup. Instead of preparing as suggested I swirled together the peanut butter and chocolate dough to create a marbled effect. These cookies are much better the second day. Make them at least a day ahead of serving. Over time the chocolate part seems to absorb some moisture from the peanut butter part and the flavors meld together. Read More

I combined the chocolate and peanut butter batter together to alter the recipie a bit. It turned out alright but didn't hold together too well. The cookie mix in general is too lumpy. I would add another egg or some water to help hold the mix together. If you're willing to experiment with the recipie a little this is worth trying. Read More

Awsome cookies! However this recipie only made 3 dozen cookies (as opposed to 4 dozen like it said.) My suggestion also is to make extra penut butter batter and do half chocolate/ half penut butter instead of about 3/4 chocolate and 1/4 peniut butter then it would mabye make 4 dozen. Read More

HI! We played with this recipe a drop but stuck to the basics! I added 1 tsp. of baking powder to the chocolate mixture. I also added chocolate chips to the chocolate mix. It made them really yummy. We cooked them for a lot longer then 12 minutes though. WE stored them in our freezer and they are really yummy! Read More

I really enjoyed the recipe but I wish I would have looked at the reviews first! 1tsp of salt was a bit much but other than that loved it. Read More

These worked well- even for an amateur baker! Went over very well for both my wife and son. I made a number of alterations after reading the reviews. 1 - Used butter instead of shortening (thought we were out). 2 - Used 2 eggs. 3 - Used 1/4 teaspoon salt. (I would have used 1/2 but wanted to be careful as I was using salted butter. They didn't seem too salty.) 4 - Used 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder- they were still a little flat but not horrid. I will try full TBS next time. 5 - Used 1/2 cup peanut butter. I would have used chocolate chips if I'd had them... rather if I'd known we had them. They were still tasty with out I just happen to be very partial to chocolate. Also I made them small- as directed and it made the full 4 dozen. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I followed the recipe for the most part except adding in baking powder per the other recommendations. These have to be the worst tasting cookies I've ever eaten and I am a chocolate lover! Maybe adding in chocolate chips would make it better. I ended up throwing away the batter it was that bad. Read More

The taste was great but there were a few things that needed some work. When i first made the chocolate mixture it looked like it wasn't going to make 4 doz. so I used a measured table spoon. I had to double the chocolate recipe but only made one of the peanutbutter topping. Also when the cookies baked they were flat. Next time I will deffinatly add some baking powder. This is a good recipe if you are willing to put some time into testing things out. Read More
