Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Two of my favorite things are chocolate and peanut butter. When you put the two together, I am one happy girl!!! These cookies…..well, they are a dream come true. They are chewy, packed with chocolate, peanut butter, and the best part of all….simple to whip up!

If you are having a sweet tooth craving, look no further! These cookies are just what you need!!

I made a batch a few weeks ago and sent them to work with my hubby. Before the cookies left the house, we all had a few and gave them two thumbs up! My hubby’s coworkers had them polished off in no time! Literally within a few hours (before lunch), these cookies were gone! Now THAT is impressive, right?!

Next time you are at the grocery store, be sure to grab a bag of peanut butter chips. The rest of the ingredients are ones you most likely already have on hand!! Win win!!

Enjoy!
