    420 g smooth peanut butter, 250 g light brown sugar, 2 medium eggs
  • Scoop heaped tablespoons of cookie dough and roll into balls, slightly flatten onto the baking tray spacing them a few cm apart (if using a cookie scoop, just scoop straight onto the tray).
  • Bake for 10-14 minutes until golden on top and the edges are set but the centres still a bit soft.
  • Break the chocolate bar into chunks - you want around 24 pieces so if the chocolate bar is divided into small squares, have them as two-piece chunks. If the chocolate bar is divided into large squares, break each square in half.
    200 g chocolate bar
  • Press the chunks of chocolate into the tops of the warm cookies. Let them sit so the chocolate can melt a bit then, if you like, sprinkle with a bit of flaky salt.



Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies: add 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder to the cookie dough along with the sugar.
