Peanut Butter and Chocolate Biscuits

Chocolate Peanut Butter Biscuits

I love the combination of Peanut Butter and Chocolate. This is the second peanut and chocolate biscuit recipe I have posted, and guess what? There will be more.

These are very soft biscuits, which have a ‘melting moments’ type of texture.

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Biscuits

125 gm butter

1/3 C crunchy peanut butter

1/2 C sugar

1 C plain flour

1 Tblspns cocoa

1/2 C bicarb soda

Cream the butter, peanut butter and sugar together until light and creamy.

Fold in the sifted dry ingredients using a metal spoon. Roll teaspoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on baking trays. Flatten with a fork.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 165 degrees Celsius.

Cool the biscuits for a few minutes on the tray before placing on a wire rack. Makes approximately 35 biscuits. (The recipe would make more, but I can’t resist eating the dough).

Peanut and Chocolate Chip Biscuits

Peanut Biscuits with Chocolate Chips

This is another recipe I’ve adapted from the Cobden Pre-School Centre’s Recipe Book fundraiser from July 1968 (see earlier post for Lemon Biscuits for more from this book).

125 gm butter
1/2 C sugar (I used brown sugar but white sugar can also be used)
1/2 C crunchy peanut butter
1 and 1/2 Cups plain flour
1 egg
1 tspn baking powder
1 tspn vanilla essence
1/2 C chocolate chips

Cream the butter, peanut butter and sugar together then beat in the vanilla essence and the egg.

Fold in the flour and baking powder, then mix in the chocolate chips.

Roll the mixture into teaspoon sized balls, then press down with fork.

Bake for approximately 12 to 15 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius, then cool slightly on the tray before moving to a wire rack.

Makes about 40 biscuits.
