Okay, I admit that I have been a PB & chocolate freak lately. I don’t really know what my deal is, but I can’t get enough PB & chocolate. I have been eating the Nature’s Path Envirokidz Leapin Lemurs daily as a snack. I also happened upon the Envirokidz Peanut Choco Drizzle Bars, which I can’t seem to get enough of either. So when I saw this recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, I couldn’t resist making them. I saw the recipe on the Yahoo Group that I belong to called Silly Yaks. It was posted by a woman named Donna S. Here is a picture of the cookies on my beloved Ohio State Buckeyes Plate (fitting since buckeyes are made out of PB & chocolate ;) ):
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups peanut butter
2 cups sugar
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts (I omitted these b/c the kids in my house won’t eat nuts unless they are well disguised)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and use an ungreased cookie sheet.
Combine peanut butter, sugar and eggs and mix well. I used my Kitchen Aid since it’s a heavy mixture. Then add the chips and nuts and that’s it!! Drop by rounded tablespoon and place cookies about 2 inches apart. Cook 10-12 minutes or till lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet a few minutes than transfer to wire rack
**A couple of notes. I followed the recipe as written except for omitting the nuts. The dough seems to get oily fairly quickly, so you need to get them on the cookie sheet and in the oven and not let them set at room temperature too long. Maybe you can place in the fridge while the other batches bake. I only bake 1 sheet at a time, so I probably should have placed the dough in the fridge.
The kids loved these. Jon said he still likes my regualar Chocolate Chip Cookies best, but Hannah couldn’t stop talking about these. They are very good and definitely satisfy that craving for PB & chocolate together. :)
