i first made a version of these cookies years ago – remember these chocolate peanut butter cup cookies? pretty awesome photography, huh? haha, sad days with my old phone that took terrible pictures. anyway…
with the peanut butter cups, the cookies were just a bit too sweet. so i made some adjustments and came up with this version. believe me, it is sooooo much better. chris agrees too – it’s now one of his favorite cookies.
the mixture of peanut butter chips and semi sweet chocolate chips provide a much better balance than the peanut butter cups did.
another reason these cookies are great is that they are almost brownie like – soft and kind of chewy, since they are soft baked. yum!
