Ingredients

  • ¾ cup butter softened
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter creamy or crunchy
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour measure the flour correctly, add 1 - 2 tablespoons extra for a little less fudgy.
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chocolate chips
  • 1 bag Chocolate heart candies

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or ungreased baking sheet.
  • Using a mixer, mix the butter, sugars, peanut butter, eggs and vanilla together until combined.
  • Add in the flour, soda, and salt in and mix until just combined. Make sure you measure flour correctly, or cookies will be dry & crumbly. (Fluff flour, spoon flour into cup and level off with a knife.)
  • Fold in chocolate chips.
  • Using a small or medium cookie scoop, scoop the dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Cookies will expand some, so leave a little room
  • Cook for 10-14 minutes at 350.
  • Remove cookies from oven and cool on baking sheet 2-3 minutes before placing on cooling rack. Add a chocolate heart by gently pressing into each of the cookies.

Notes

Make sure you don't over-measure your flour.  You should fluff your flour, then spoon your flour into your measuring cup and then level it off with a knife.
