Chocolate Peanut Butter Surprises Cookies with the classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate.
I used to bake more than I do now. I don’t do it as often anymore because I realized it’s more trouble for me than it’s worth (i.e. the mess, the many bowls you have to use, the clean-up, etc). However, sometimes I suck it up and bake and then I love baking all over again because of the final product. Baking and I have a love-hate relationship.
I have the biggest sweet tooth and I love eating desserts of any kind. I’d have to say, though, that chocolate and peanut butter is my favorite combination in a dessert and it’s what I eat the most — Reese’s peanut butter cups, anyone?
So of course when I saw the recipe online for these chocolate peanut butter surprise cookies, I almost instantaneously said “yes, gotta make them!,” and making them I did. I mean, c’mon — who doesn’t love chocolate, peanut butter, AND a surprise? It’s like the world’s best combination! Of course, I’m a little biased and it’s entirely my own opinion.
Anyway, I really hope you try to make these yourself. They don’t use a lot of ingredients — most of which you probably already have in your pantry — and they take no time to bake. They’re also fun if you have kids that like to help out in the kitchen. You can task them with rolling up the cookie dough in balls and dipping them in sugar. They’ll get a kick out of helping you and it’ll make your cookie-making a little faster — although, maybe a little messier with a little one ;) I was able to make about 2 dozen but it all varies depending on how much chocolate dough you use for each cookie.
Update: I just realized that in step 4, I completely messed up the instructions. After you add in the egg, you slowly start adding in the flour mixture to combine it all — and that’s where you get the crumbly dough ;)
