If you are a fan of a Snickers Bars, these cookies may be calling your name. Chocolate chunks, caramel bits and peanut butter chips all collide in a chewy peanut butter cookie for a delicious cookie. I have experimented with different caramel for the cookies. I found the Kraft caramel bits are the perfect size and are small enough as to not overwhelm the cookie in the baking process. Be sure to use parchment paper for on your baking sheet for best results.
Yield about 20 cookies
- 2 cups all purpose flour (I love Bob’s Red Mill Pastry flour)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar (firmly packed)
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter (I love Jif creamy)
- 2 large eggs
- 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup milk chocolate baking chips (I used guittard, or chocolate chunks)
- 1 cup Reese’s peanut butter chips
- 1 cup kraft caramel bits
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Using a mixer with the paddle attachment, blend butter, brown sugar, peanut butter and honey until smooth and creamy. Add eggs and vanilla extract until well incorporated. Next add flour mixture along with chocolate, peanut butter chips and caramel bits until well combined. Take a heaping tablespoon-ish of cookie dough and roll in the palm of your hand. Place on prepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes until cookies begin to crackle and tops are slightly golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool before transferring to cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
