  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, room temperature

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F. Line three baking sheets with parchment paper.

  4. Stir in the dry ingredients into the peanut butter mixture in two additions.
  5. Stir in the milk chocolate chips.
  6. Scoop about three tablespoons of dough for each cooking onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2½ inches apart.
