what could i use instead of peanut butter chips?

This recipe is absolutely delicious with the peanut butter chips, especially if you are a chocolate and peanut butter lover.

However, you could easily take them out and replace them if you have allergies, or would prefer something different.

Here are a few substitutes we recommend using if you choose to not use the peanut butter chips:

  • Andes Mints (chopped up into small bits)
  • Mini M&M’s (or regular sized M&M’s)
  • Milk Chocolate Chips
  • White Chocolate Chips (we also like to combine the two chocolate chips and give them extra sweetness).
  • Nuts (I love these with pecans)
  • Craisins

Or if you don’t have peanut butter chips on hand, but still want a peanut butter taste, here is what we recommend:

  • Peanut Butter M&M’s (chopped into small bits)
  • Reese’s Pieces
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (chopped into small bits)
  • Melted Peanut Butter Drizzle on Top (I melt some peanut butter and drizzle it on the cookies after they are baked and cooled. Absolutely delicious.)

  1. I made these exact to the recipe, yummy but mine would have been better with extra flour, baked at 375 degrees, and baked a little longer. The first batch in the oven was tasty but really flat and undercooked (I don't mind them undercooked, but I was sad they were so flat). I couldn't add more flour but increasing the temp and baking time helped a lot on the second batch. I'll make them again with those tweaks, my kids were delighted!
  2. I made these cookies but used chopped-up peanut butter m&m's instead of peanut butter chips (peanut butter, not peanut). They were fantastic!! Perfect fix for a chocoalte- peanut butter addict, and the dough tastes wonderful too. Definitely making these again :)
