Peanut Butter Lover’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

My boyfriend and I love chocolate chip cookies, but peanut butter is truly what has his heart. He is probably peanut butter’s biggest fan. He eats it right outΒ of the jar with the biggest spoon we happen to have on hand. Whenever he senses I am in the kitchen and baking prep is in progress, he always asks if there is a possibility that peanut butter could be incorporated. Sigh. So, I decided to make sure he got his peanut butter fix this time with these ah-mazing peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. They are probably the best peanut butter cookies I have ever tried. Then, the almost obnoxious amount of chocolate chips added into the mix creates something only true cookie lovers will appreciate. If you take a chance on these cookies, you will not be disappointed.

The only warning I have to share is to eat these cookies at your own risk. They are truly addicting. πŸ™‚
