Sweet Melissa Sundays – Chewy Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

by Jessica on August 2, 2009

Chewy PB Cookies

If you know me at all (even just a tiny bit), you know I love me some dark chocolate. What you may not know is that I also love peanut butter. And when you marry the two, you get this… Peanut Butter & Co.’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter. Obviously, I love it. It’s horrible on the hips, but it tastes oh so good.

When this week’s SMS was announced, I knew exactly which PB I was going to use. And into the cabinet I went (because I always keep this on hand). They turned out perfect… soft, chewy, a little crunchy on the edges with that smooth nutty aftertaste. The chocolate flavor wasn’t as prevalent, but it was still there. After these, though, I don’t know if I can go back to regular ‘ol PB cookies!

A big thank you to Stephanie of Ice Cream Before Dinner for this week’s yummy choice! Head over to her blog for the recipe and don’t forget to check out the other SMS bakers here! 🙂

:O that peanut butter looks amazing!!! I can’t stop looking at it! We have a version in England that’s stripes of peanut butter and stripes of chocolate spread. We’d call it tiger spread when we were little 🙂

DARK CHOCOLATE Peanut Butter sounds so sinful and yet so scruptious!

A guy at my work eats the white chocolate kind. I’ll have to try the dark chocolate- that would be sinfully good in peanut butter cookies!
