These Chocolate Wows are a delicious chocolate cookie recipe packed with plenty of peanut butter chips.  There is a short video showing you how to make these cookies toward the end of this post.

Chocolate Wows Cookies

You’ll find that these chocolate cookies crackle perfectly during baking and stay nice and tender and gooey inside.  They’re my favorite chocolate cookie recipe to make and surprise others with.  One bite, and everyone falls in love with these Chocolate Wows!

They freeze well, so be sure to plan for that and double the recipe if you wish.  For school lunches, I like to store two in individual zip baggies and then just take them out each morning and add them to lunches.  It’s also a nice way to portion control if you happen to get an overwhelming chocolate craving that has to be fulfilled!

If you want super duper chocolatey cookies (or if there’s a peanut allergy in your home), you can always sub regular chocolate chips for the peanut butter chips.  Make them the way you like them!

These cookies are super chocolatey and packed with peanut butter chips!



  • 6 ounces semi sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces peanut butter chips (save a few for dotting on top)


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with nonstick spray, or line with parchment paper.
  2. In a 2-quart saucepan over low heat, melt the chocolate squares and butter, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  3. In a large bowl mixing at medium speed, beat the eggs and sugar until light and lemon-colored (about 2 minutes), frequently scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula. Reduce the speed to low; add the chocolate mixture, flour, cocoa, baking powder, vanilla and salt; beat just until blended. Increase speed to medium; beat 2 minutes. Stir in the peanut butter chips.
  4. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cooking sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until cookies are set. Let cool on baking sheet for about 10 minutes, or until they are firm enough to transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Yes I did and the picture looked so good I doubled it. Many ingredients involved in my failure.

      That’s weird. If you Google, you’ll find the same/similar recipe on other sites. Something must have been off with your measuring when you doubled it. Sorry it didn’t work out!

    Hi I’m an experienced baker however, every time I try to make a cookie like this it comes out paper thin. I even tried chilling the batter. Nothing seems to help. If you can tell me what I am doing wrong I would greatly appreciate it.
