As I sit down to pen this post, I can’t help but notice that this marks the third consecutive dessert I’ve shared that boasts the irresistible combination of peanut butter and chocolate. And guess what? There’s another one on the horizon for next week. ????

It’s safe to say that I have a passionate fondness for this dynamic duo – chocolate and peanut butter. While I don’t have an overwhelming sweet tooth, when I do indulge, it’s chocolate and peanut butter that I crave these days!

The Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake is essentially a giant cookie, baked to perfection. It’s a breeze to prepare and even easier to savor. The edges sport a satisfying crispness, while the center remains delightfully gooey – just as you’d desire in your cookies.

I’ll share a few essential tips here to ensure that your Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake turns out flawlessly.

  1. Butter: Ensure your butter is at room temperature, which means it should be soft enough to dent with your finger but not so soft that your finger goes all the way through the stick. To achieve this, cut the butter into one-inch pieces and let them sit on your countertop for about half an hour. Be cautious not to microwave the butter, as it can lead to undesirable results.
  2. Eggs: Like your butter, your eggs should also be at room temperature. A quick way to achieve this is by placing the eggs (still in their shells) in a bowl of lukewarm water for approximately three minutes.
  3. Baking Powder and Baking Soda: Ensure these leavening agents are fresh by replacing them every six months. To check their effectiveness, drop baking soda into vinegar and baking powder into water – if you don’t see immediate bubbles, it’s time for fresh supplies.
  4. Flour: Properly measure your flour by scooping it (using a spoon) into your measuring cup and leveling it off. Scooping directly from the flour container can lead to a compacted measurement, resulting in dry cookies – a scenario no one desires.
  5. Oven Temperature: Keep an eye on your oven temperature. I learned this lesson the hard way with my new oven in my new home, which was running about 50 degrees hotter than the set temperature. Easily verify your oven’s accuracy with an oven thermometer.

And, most importantly, don’t forget to crown your Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake with a generous helping of ice cream and a drizzle of hot fudge. ????
