Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter Cookies - gluten free, flour free

Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter Cookies

Usually, when I decide to make peanut butter cookies, I use my gluten-free recipe and, of course, I add chocolate chips.  I was thinking of using the chocolate hazelnut spread, but, when I went to WalMart, this product jumped out at me - Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams.

I used the Flourless Peanut Butter Cookie recipe from King Arthur Flour and used the Dark Chocolate Dreams for the peanut butter.   And, yes, I did add the mini-chocolate chips. The result?  Well, here's a bite for you!

  • Dark Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter Cookies 
  • Adapted from Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
  • Yield:  18 cookies

  • 1 cup Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Using a mixer on medium, combine the Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter, brown sugar and baking soda.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla, and blend until the dough comes together.  Stir in chocolate chips..
  4. Scoop a Tablespoon of dough per cookie, roll into a ball, then, flatten the top slightly.  Leave a little room in between cookies as they do spread a little.
  5. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes - tops will be slightly crinkled.  You do not want the edges to brown.  Allow to cool on the pan.  They will be soft, at first, so let them set up before devouring.
