Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip -Gluten Free

Melissa Petry


My fiance's favorite candy is peanut butter cups. I came accross this recipe and modified it to be firmer w/out the flour and added chocolate chips! I make this recipe at least 3 times a month and can barely keep them more than a couple of days! Sometimes I hide half the batch for the next week!

2 c
peanut butter (semi melted)
3 large
2 c
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 pkg
chocolate chips


1Get the peanut butter easier to stir by microwaving it for 30-45 seconds in a medium mixing bowl.
2Cream together the first 4 ingredients.
3Put in the freezer to firm back up for 15-20 minutes.
4Fold in the Chocolate Chips.
5Spoon into hand, then roll into ping-pong sized balls and place on a cookie sheet about 1 1/2" apart. (they don't spread very much)
6Press the balls of dough criss cross with a fork, or a potato masher.
7Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes, let completely cool before removing them from the cookie sheet they are fragile when still too warm. Or if you love them fresh out of the oven eat them in pieces like I do.
