Every bite packed with chopped peanuts and shavings of dark chocolate!
These cookies are soft, fluffy and full of texture. They not only have peanut butter in them, but also the addition of chopped peanuts to enhance the flavor even more.
For the chocolate I used Ghirardelli 65% caco large chips. This chocolate keeps the cookie from being too sweet. I also HIGHLY recommend roughly chopping the chocolate chips. It makes every bite have shavings of chocolate with the occasional huge melty blob.
This is probably one of the first cookie recipes I have really worked on developing. And as previously mentioned on Instagram my husband has had a large part in the creation of these through all of the tasting stages :) He is also now my most honest critic whether I like it or not!
These cookies also travel well as stated from my Father in Law (in California) and grandmother (in Florida). I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
Happy baking 🍪
