Chocolate Covered Peanut Chunk Cookies

These chocolate covered peanut chunk cookies are my family’s favorite cookie nowadays. You can’t beat the chewy cookie with lots of chunky peanuty goodness. Bake some and enjoy!

These are no ordinary peanut butter cookie.

They really only have a small amount of peanut butter in the batter. It’s the chocolate covered peanuts that make these cookies so special.

Growing up the two most popular movie candy was Goobers and Snowcaps. Snowcaps are mini dark chocolate chips covered with white nonpareils, Goobers are peanuts covered with creamy milk chocolate. 

Happily these yummy candies are still around.

I decided to make a cookie with the Goobers all crunched up to add the best crunchy factor. My family thinks these are the perfect peanut butter chocolate cookie.

So yea, they came out so good!

Bake a batch today, bet you think these are the best combo in a cookie.

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea or kosher salt
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup smooth or chunky peanut butter
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 large or extra large egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup chocolate covered peanuts, chopped, I used Goobers
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate


  1. 1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Remember, we only bake one cookie sheet at a time for even baking.

    2.Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl and set aside.

    3.In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the sugar, melted butter and peanut butter until creamy. Add the vanilla and egg until well combined.

    4.Add the flour mixture and beat until blended.

    5.Stir in the chopped Goobers or chocolate covered peanuts.

    6.Place batter in fridge for about 5-10 minutes. After you take them out, roll them into small balls making a total of 36 cookies.

    7.Place each ball on the cookie sheet and gently press down with the tines of a fork. If you need to, lightly flour the fork or mist the fork with cooking spray.

    8.Bake about 8-10 minutes; turn the pan around half way through, again for even baking. They should look light brown. Do not over bake.

    9.When you take them out of the oven, place cookies on a cooling rack for about 5 minutes and then slide the parchment paper off the cookie sheet to cool on the rack.
