Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I made Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies earlier this week.  Luke said they were "amazing".  I have to say I thought they turned out yummy too. :)

Several years ago, I found a recipe for Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookies on the Food Network website.  Over the years, I've made those cookies several times, and they're delicious!  However, this time I decided to add a few couple of changes to the recipe, and this is what I came up with...

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa (I use Hershey's Natural Unsweetened Cocoa)
1 cup dark chocolate chips (I use Hershey's Special Dark chocolate chips)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use Hershey's semi-sweet chocolate chips)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (I use JIF)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Stir the flour, salt and baking soda together in a bowl.  Then in a separate bowl, using a mixer, mix the butter, both sugars, eggs, vanilla extract, peanut butter and cocoa together.  Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture.  Once combined, stir the chocolate chips into the mixture.  For each cookie, drop about 1 to 2 tablespoons of dough onto a greased baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes.  This recipe makes about 4 dozen cookies.
