I’m not  a huge fan of cookies. But these, these make me change my tune. They’re so chocolatey and rich, it’s really all you can do to eat one. I’ve made them a couple of times now, and they’ve turned out great both times. The first time I made them, I didn’t freeze the peanut butter cups. While they tasted great, they weren’t the prettiest. This time I did freeze the chocolate, and the cups held their shape beautifully.

I love that it’s a double dose of peanut butter and chocolate. The peanut butter cups of course, but then also the addition of peanut butter to the chocolate cookie batter. Just enough chocolate flavor to really let the peanut butter shine through! I used crunchy peanut butter for this most recent batch, and was a bit worried it would affect the final outcome. But, in fact, I  rather liked the small pieces of peanuts inside the cookie. So, I’ve changed the recipe to reflect that.
