Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

These cookies are my three-year olds favorite cookies. When they were baking in the oven, he sat by the oven waiting for them to finish.

Once they had finished baking, I think he asked me for a cookie every 5 minutes. Later, between my older boys and their friends, the plate of cookies quickly disappeared. If you don’t like peanut butter chips, try adding butterscotch chips or even regular milk chocolate chips.

These cookies are so soft and moist. They will be sure to satisfy your chocolate craving. Do not over bake these cookies or they will be dry. Don’t stress, the cookies will continue to cook a little bit after you take them out of the oven.

Until next time,
