A classic and divine combination of chocolate and peanuts. These buttery cookies simply melt in the mouth. Drizzle across the cookie top with some melted white chocolate if you are feeling sugar high and decadent.

Chocolate Peanut Crumble Cookies

adapted from Delicious
  • 30 g Unsalted butter
  • 40 g All purpose flour
  • 30 g Caster sugar
  • 60 g Unsalted peanuts, half roughly chopped
  • 115 g Unsalted butter
  • 115 g Caster sugar
  • 20 g Smooth peanut butter
  • 1 Large egg
  • 160 g All purpose flour
  • 20 g Dutch cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 100 g 70% Semisweet chocolate, chopped
  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F and line two baking trays with parchment paper. Make the topping. In a large mixing bowl, rub the butter into the flour and sugar with your fingertips, until a soft, crumbly dough is formed. Add the chopped and whole peanuts, then set aside.
  2. Prepare the cookie dough by creaming cream the sugar, butter and peanut butter in a separate mixing bowl. Add the egg and beat again. Sift in the flour, cocoa, and baking powder and add the chopped chocolate. Mix well to form a soft dough.
  3. Roll the mixture into 20 small balls and divide between the baking trays, spacing well apart. Press each cookie down and top with a little crumble mix. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the crumble topping is golden, then remove from the oven and leave for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. | © 2011 | | © 2011 |

Peanut butter crumble is such a unique cookie topping! These cookies look awesome, so tasty!

Irresistible! I really love that topping.



Lynda 5/12/11 21:42

I want these cookies now to go with my afternoon coffee! I'm bookmarking to try soon; my husband will be crazy for the chocolate and peanutbutter combo.

Erika K @ Best Food Processor Info 5/12/11 21:54

These look fantastic, and I'd be adapting this to be gluten free. Cookies do pretty well with this kind of adjustment, as long as I remember what I've done with past recipes that really worked.

We can't resist most things involving chocolate and peanut butter :) Will save this and maybe try this during the Christmas season.

Cinnamon and Thyme 5/12/11 22:07

Can I have one please? :) They look so good :)!

I am a huge fan of chocolate, so I absolutely love this Chocolate Peanut Crumble Cookie recipe. I can't wait to try making this. Thanks for sharing this with us

The Duo Dishes 13/12/11 14:31

This is an easy fun cookie for chocolate and peanut lovers. It combines two great elements. A little salt or salted caramel on top would be nice too.

grace 15/12/11 09:01

i've never seen a crumble atop a cookie! this is an amazing idea, angie, and the flavor combination is not to be beaten.

Buy Caviar 15/12/11 15:00

Thanks for this delicious recipe, and most of all for proper instructions. My first ever cookie batch was ruined, because the recipe didn't say I should wait between taking the baking tray out of the oven and putting the cookies on a cooling tray, so, because after 10 minutes I saw the cookies were still soft, I left them in for about 17-8 minutes, and the got totally dry. I ate them, but they were nowhere near proper cookies. Now I know it was okay for them to be soft because they harden while left sitting for 5 minutes.
Hugs, Flora

Ashley@Bakerbynature 15/12/11 16:56

Angie, these are seriously dream town!

Roxana GreenGirl {A little bit of everything} 18/12/11 14:55

Chocolate and peanut butter is an irresistible combo on its own. Add more peanuts and mix everything in the form of a cookie and it's addictive!
Your cookies look amazing Angie!
Happy Holidays!

Asmita 20/12/11 00:00

These look divine! I think I could eat the whole plate of cookies.

Cindy 27/12/11 16:29
