These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies are soft, chewy and chocolatey, with a light peanut butter flavour!
You know when you’re searching around your kitchen, sifting through the pantry, the freezer and anywhere you can think of that might have something sweet you can eat? Those days when you just need a soft cookie with loads of chocolate? That happened to me yesterday. I was craving cookies and there were none to be found. Not a single crumb, anywhere. I hate it when that happens. So what does one do when faced with such a situation? You make some.
And you make the kind that are warm, and soft, and sticky with melted chocolate. Because that’s the best kind of cookie.
Then you eat them right out of the oven because they’re the best when the chocolate is all melty…sometimes you even press the warm cookies down with a fork so the chocolate spreads all over the cookie.
But you make sure to leave some for everyone else. No one likes a cookie monster.
These cookies are really good. They have a light peanut butter taste…they’re kind of like the Monster Cookies I make at Halloween, but the flavours are a little more mild, and they’re a lot easier to make. The key to making these cookies is to make sure you don’t over bake them. I like to bake them for a couple of minutes less than the recommended time because then I’m guaranteed a soft and chewy cookie.
