Chocolate chips and peanut butter chips make a dynamic duo in this classic cookie recipe. These easy chocolate and peanut butter chip cookies are popular all year around!
These cookies give you a FAST and EASY way to enjoy the chocolate and peanut butter combination in cookie form!
Double Peanut Butter & Milk Chocolate Cookies Recipe
When we make these peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies at home I can’t resist eating a warm cookie and enjoying a cold glass of milk. It’s handy to have individual cookies, but sometimes making them into bar cookies is quicker and just as delicious!
A similar recipe in traditional cookie form is our Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookies. It uses mini reese’s cups where this recipe uses peanut butter chips right along side the milk chocolate chips.
At our family gatherings, there are lots of kids. Kids love cookies. They don’t really care what shape the cookies are, they just like eating them as a snack, appetizer, and dessert. These cookies are SO good it’s easy to fill up on them before the meal is served!
Bar cookies are quicker because you don’t have to make balls out of the dough and there’s less cleanup – we only use one 15” jelly roll pan, instead of getting multiple cookie sheets dirty.
Chocolate & Peanut Butter Desserts
The best cookies have just the right combination of ingredients. Everyone that tried these at our family party liked them! A few people even said that the peanut butter chips were a nice surprise.
Chocolate and peanut butter is one of our favorite dessert combinations. We especially love the combination in our 5 Ingredient Chocolate & Peanut Butter Bars, Peanut Butter Cookies with a Chocolate Kiss, and Chocolate & Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treats.
I think people expect traditional chocolate chip cookies. I like an easy recipe with common ingredients that gives people a nice surprise!
My husband’s family has a Cowboy Bar Cookie Recipe that is amazing. When we made the Chocolate & Peanut Butter Bar Cookies in the same pan, my mother-in-law was convinced we must’ve added peanut butter chips to her classic recipe. It’s a totally different recipe, so let’s see if she ever reads this and finds out! These recipes are the best two bar cookies I’ve eaten!
We LOVE all of these cookies when they are warm out of the oven and a little bit gooey!

Then stir in peanut butter chips and milk chocolate OR semi-sweet chocolate chips. Stir gently to avoid breaking the chips.
