Peanut butter & chocolate cookies

These cookies are an ultimate favourite in our house. Everyone loves them and I wouldn’t hesitate to say that they are also one of the best things under the sun. Besides, the frequency with which they land in the oven speaks for itself. If you love peanut butter and chocolate as much as I do, you must give them a try!

Ingredients for about 12 cookies:

- 250g good quality dark chocolate, cut into small pieces
- 100g good quality milk chocolate, cut into small pieces
- 75g cane sugar 
- 85g butter, softened
- 100g peanut butter 
- 1 gree-range egg
- vanilla
- 100g flour 
- 1/3 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/3 teaspoon baking soda 
- 100g salted peanuts (optional)

Preheat the oven to 180°C / 360F.

Using a water bath, melt 100g of dark chocolate. When slightly cooled, combine in a large bowl with sugar, butter, peanut butter, egg and vanilla. Blend until smooth. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder and blend again. Stir in the remaining chocolate pieces and nuts.

Start taking a heaping tablespoon of dough and forming it into balls, then place them on a baking tray, leaving a fairly large distances, and slightly flatten each one. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges seem a  little darker. When ready, leave to cool completely before removing the cookies from the tray.
