Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

A friend's mom always made these cookies when I was younger.  I have such good memories of them. Recently I have been obsessed with the peanut butter chocolate combo so I had to make these cookies.  This recipe is adapted from Barbara Bakes.

1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups peanut butter chips

Heat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.  In a separate mixing bowl cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time. Stir in the vanilla extract. Mix the flour mixture into the butter mixture until combined. Stir in the peanut butter chips.  Roll a heaping tablespoon of batter into a ball and place on the cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough. Bake for 10-12 minutes then let the cookies sit on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing and letting cool on a wire rack.
