Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Wow, I'm finally online using my own internet! Can you believe it has taken 6 WEEKS and 4 technicians to get my internet working.  It has been a tough ride, with many  frustrating conversations to call centers in India, New Zealand and across Australia.  But I move past it and on to the blogging.  Oh how I have missed it.  So many recipes to share.  I start with these lovely cookies.

I was in the mood for baking and this was one of the few recipes I had all the ingredients on hand.  They are nice and crispy and crumbly with a hint of peanut butter taste alongside the chocolate.  My co-workers and taste testers were impressed.

** Sunday Baking round-up will resume tomorrow and sometime this week I will post all the round-ups from the weeks I missed!**

Recipe from cadbury

125g butter
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup plain flour
2 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda (baking soda)

1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Cream butter, peanut butter and sugar together until light in colour.
2. Sift the dry ingredients and add. Mix well to form a dough.
3. Roll teaspoonfuls of the mixture into balls. Place on greased or lined baking trays. Flatten each ball slightly with your hand or the back of a fork.
4. Bake for 20 minutes.
5. Dust the discuits with a little caster sugar on their removal from the oven. Cool for a few minutes before removing from the tray.


  1. The cookies look soooo good! The best part is that the recipe is easy too! I will try the next time I get a peanut and chocolate craving =)
