Gideon’s Brings Back Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Cookie

The Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Cookie is back at Gideon’s Bakehouse in Disney Springs. This limited-edition cookie features the best food pairing out there – chocolate and peanut butter. And it lives up to the hype. It might be my favorite cookie from this Disney Springs bakery, and that’s saying something.

This cookie combines dough from two of Gideon’s mainstay cookies, the Peanut Butter and the Triple Chocolate. It’s then covered with dozens of chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and house-made candied peanuts. I want to see a documentary on how these things are made. That outer coating is a work of art.

The Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl cookie was first introduced last summer. I was bummed that I couldn’t try it then. Luckily for me, a friend delivered a box from the Orlando bakery when she returned from a weekend trip.

My Gideon’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl review

This cookie needs to be a permanent fixture on Gideon’s menu. Have a glass of milk handy. 1 million out of 5 stars.

Gideon’s cookies aren’t for everyone, but they are for me. They’re incredibly rich and dense. You can see just how dense in the above photo. And they’re sweet, but that’s offset by large chunks of sea salt. We usually eat a quarter of a cookie at a time. It’s a win-win. We don’t feel overly full and they last longer. The Gideon’s cookie box lets you know just how long you can save them:

“Gideon’s Cookies are scratch made by hand using only high quality natural ingredients and perishable chocolates. Keep them stored around 75 degrees and out of direct sunlight to avoid blooming and keep them pretty. They are best enjoyed on day one but can be stored airtight at room temperature for up to three days before freezing. Thaw naturally when you’re ready to enjoy them again! No microwaves! It will bring shame to you and your family.”

The Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl cookie is available throughout March before being replaced by another ridiculous creation in April.

Gideon’s Bakehouse is the most popular shop in Disney Springs. Be prepared to use their virtual queue on busier days.
