Peter Pan Neverland Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve never met a peanut butter cookie I didn’t like.

Between dozens on my blog and many more in my first cookbook, I can never have too many recipes for them.

Peter Pan Neverland Chocolate Chip Cookies - Soft and chewy peanut butter cookies loaded with chocolate chips!! The combination of peanut butter and chocolate is IRRESISTIBLE!!

These soft and chewy cookies loaded with chocolate chips are right up my alley.

I used the new Peter Pan® Simply Ground Peanut Butter. It’s no-stir and spreads like a creamy peanut butter but has a crunch-like texture. The consistency is like peanut butter ground by hand but without the hassle. It’s creamy with a bit of crunch.

The subtle crunch of the peanut butter gives the cookies a slight nutty texture.

And the fun name reminds me of all the dozens and dozens of times I’ve rode the Peter Pan ride at Disneyworld and Disneyland, both as a kid and as a mom taking my kid, and wishing I had some of these cookies to snack on while waiting in line.

If you’re like me and can’t resist the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, you’re going to love the cookies.

I took the cookies to a party and they were gone in minutes. Never mind that my daughter ate five and declared they’re one of her new favorite cookies.

Peter Pan Neverland Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've never met a peanut butter cookie I didn't like and these soft and chewy cookies loaded with chocolate chips are right up my alley. The peanut butter is creamy with a bit of crunch and gives the cookies a slight nutty texture. If you can't resist the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, you're going to love the cookies.

Yield: about 18 medium cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: about 11 minutes

Total Time: 3+ hours, for dough chilling

Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • heaping 3/4 cup Peter Pan Simply Ground Original Peanut Butter®
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or large bowl and electric hand mixer), add the egg, butter, sugars, and cream on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the peanut butter, vanilla, and mix on medium-high speed until incorporated, about 1 minute.
  3. Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the flour, baking soda, salt, and mix on low speed until just incorporated, about 1 minute; don't overmix.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and mix on low speed until just incorporated.
  5. Using a two-tablespoon cookie scoop form approximately 18 equal-sized mounds of dough. Tip - Strategically place a few chocolate chips on top of each mound of dough by taking chips from the underside and adding them on top.
  6. Place mounds on a large plate or tray, cover with plasticwrap, and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, up to 5 days. Do not bake with unchilled dough because cookies will bake thinner, flatter, and be more prone to spreading.
  7. Preheat oven to 350F, line a baking sheet with a Silpat or spray with cooking spray. Place dough mounds on baking sheet, spaced at least 2 inches apart (I bake 8 cookies per sheet) and bake for about 11 minutes, or until edges have set and tops are just set, even if slightly undercooked, pale, and glossy in the center; don't overbake. Cookies firm up as they cool. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for about 10 minutes before serving. I let them cool on the baking sheet and don't use a rack.
  8. Cookies will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 6 months. Alternatively, unbaked cookie dough can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 4 months, so consider baking only as many cookies as desired and save the remaining dough to be baked in the future when desired.

  1. I used to never eat crunchy peanut butter but have grown to LOVE it over the years. To the point that I almost prefer crunchy peanut butter over smooth now. And to have that slight crunch in a cookie while still chewy and gooey with chocolate would probably be pretty mindblowing. This is a peanut butter lover’s dream come true (aka me). YUUUMM :) 

  2. They look so good! I can imagine the creamy peanut butter and the chocolate now!

  3. If I eat these Neverland cookies, will I stop getting older? Because a cookie as an anti-aging weapon sounds like the perfect way to live. These look fantastic!

  4. Jon and I love peanut butter so something new is exciting. I usually make it myself or buy Kroger ‘s all natural which is really smooth. I prefer a little grit so I think I’d really like this. And those cookies…. no question they’d be gone in no time around here!!

    • Ok if you like a little grit, this is your peanut butter! It’s got the Whole Foods grind-your-own peanut butter kind of texture that’s slightly crunchy without being as crunchy (big chunks of nuts) as other ‘crunchy peanut butters’ have. Eating this one raw you notice the crunch more; when baked not as much and it mellows. I am a peanut butter connoisseur as you know after my first cookbook :)

  5. Oh my goodness Averie these look like HEAVEN! Can I fly away to Neverland and live off of these cookies now?!

  6. I feel like Cookie Monster now (the traditional one, not the CM who they made all healthy … )–me want cookie!!  I think I would have been tripping your daughter so I could get to the head of the cookie line.  :)

  7. LOVE this averie!! kinda feeling it for a giant cookie cake if I’m being honest ;) x

  8. I’ve seen that peanut butter and I was always curious if it really is as good as it sounds.  

    Mmmmmmm  Cookies!!  Peanut butter and chocolate is probably th ebest combo flavor for cookies, but I honestly don’t think I’ve ever made them!  WHAT!?!?

    • WHAT??? Never made chocolate chip PB cookies? Girl. Get on that.

      This particular style of the peanut butter is like a Whole Foods grind-your-own peanut butter texture that’s slightly crunchy. Eating it raw you notice the crunch more; when baked not as much.

  9. Oooh I need to find that peanut butter – it sounds AMAZING. I can never get enough PB cookies either, they’re the BEST.

  10. I’m a huge PB fan, I haven’t tried this one yet.  I love a little crunch in my PB!

    Why have I never thought to put chocolate chips in my PB cookies before?  You’re kind of a genius!

    Love love your recipes! Is there any way to have a recipe box that we could file the recipes that we like the best? Maybe you already have one that I’ve missed.
    Thank you,

    • There used to be a service that offered what you’re talking about but they went out of business so to speak and that service doesn’t exist anymore. You can either print out the recipes you like or send yourself links to your email so you can print out when you’re ready.

  12. Thank you for your posts. They brighten my day.

  13. oh yummy! This is right up my alley!

  14. These cookies look to die for! I  absolutely adore this PB, and I’ll have to get on their website and look for more recipes. 

  15. I’ve never had a peanut butter cookie… I know I need to try one! I’ll be saving this post and making one from here soon though!

  16. In the directions it says to add the cream with the first few ingredients but I don’t see cream listed with the ingredients. How much cream does this need? They look amazing by the way!!

    • You don’t add cream and the directions don’t say to add cream, you’re instructed to cream together the butter and sugar. It’s a VERY common term used in baking meaning beat the butter and sugar together until creamed, light, and fluffy.

    • I was confused by this as well. Typically one is directed to cream together certain ingredients. Have these in the oven right now, cannot wait to taste them!

  17. These look so yummy!  I have a PB chocolate chip cookie recipe I use and love so I’ll have to try these and see which one I like better!

  18. ooooh these def look like the perfect pb choc chip cookie!

  19. Avrie,
          Wow these cookies look absolutely amazing! I am not that good of a cook or a baker but with these directions it seems to actually be really simple! It actually very coincidental that I found a recipe for such deliciously looking cookies today because it happens to be my birthday. I think I know what I would like to try as a topper for my cake now! Thanks for giving such easy and simple directions so that I can do it on my own because I am not a baker or a cook  whatsoever. Keep up the good work!

    Sincerely,

    Jake 

  20. Hello Averie,

    I made these last night as we were running our of treats…as my son said.  Turned out delicious! 

    Thanks!
