I've had a bag of Reese's peanut pieces sitting in the baking cupboard after my husband saw it in the supermarkets, bought it, and demanded I make something using it! So who doesn't love chocolate and peanut butter?! One of the best combinations ever! It was so hard to decide what to make, cookies, cake, brownies, the options are endless! So in the end, I decided on these chocolate peanut butter cookies!
I came across the recipe here and adapted it to also include peanut butter in the cookie itself. Unfortunately, these cookies weren't chewy as I was hoping they would be, rather a bit crumbly. But when you have such great flavour combinations, I didn't mind that they were on the crumbly side.
I've mentioned previously that I love baking cookies as the recipes are all so simple, something little girl can get involved in. So while I made these chocolate peanut butter cookies, I reserved some of the cookie dough so that little girl could decorate them with her M&Ms, something she absolutely loves to do! Here is a pic of how her cookies turned out. They remind me of little colourful toadstools!
So these cookies are the first of many chocolate peanut butter creations to come! I can't wait to try my hand at something else using this flavour combination! Reese's peanut butter is the best!
