Noah is a HUGE peanut butter lover. He really doesn't like chocolate, but will eat it as long as it's served with peanut butter. I don't get it either.
So these cookies were inspired by him. Plus the fact that I had chocolate cream cheese and no idea what to do with it. 🙂
Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
1 container (8oz) Chocolate Cream Cheese2 tbsp. Peanut Butter1/4c Molasses1c Flour1 eggSugar
Mix cream cheese, peanut butter, molasses, flour, and egg well. Roll this mixture into 1″ balls. Spread sugar on a plate. Take the cookie dough balls and flatten them into the sugar, so one side of the disc will be coated with the sugar. Place cookies sugar side up on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until tops of cookies start to crack. I didn't put icing on these, but they would be SO good with it, since they are more of a cake-y texture cookie! Just use a couple tablespoons peanut butter, 1/2c cream cheese, and 1/4c sugar. Mix that together and top the cookies. Yum!
I want to make these but have a question. What is chocolate cream cheese?
That was popular in stores a few years ago (when I made this article)…you can substitute regular cream cheese with 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp cocoa powder if you can’t find the chocolate variety!
