Have I mentioned a thousand times over that my favorite dessert flavors are the combination of chocolate and peanut butter? Recently, I found a new cookie recipe that combines these two yums in a new delicious way.
Not only are there peanut butter morsels on top of the cookie, but there’s peanut butter inside the cookie itself and that chocolate and peanut butter combo is heavenly.
With all of the holiday parties and cookie swaps on your agenda this month, I thought I’d share my new find with you all. Happy Baking!
Some of you have asked where I get my awesome cookie recipes from. Most of the time I use Mom’s Big Book of Cookies – it’s a great book with over 200 recipes!
