Happy Monday everyone! And Happy November! Now that you have loads of leftover Halloween candy allow me to share this recipe with you. Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookies are a tasty and classic way to use up all those peanut butter cups that your little trick or treaters came home with.
How was your Halloween? Ours was full of family, friends (and Harry and Marv) and food as we celebrated Kellan’s 4th birthday Nightmare Before Christmas Style complete with Jack Skellington Cake . I can’t believe our little guy is already four. It doesn’t seem like that long ago that they put that little 7 pound baby in my arms for the first time. Now he’s running around, playing video games with daddy, helping me in the kitchen. And when I asked him the question in his birthday book “what makes you the most happy?” He said, without skipping a beat. “Kissing a girl.”
Basically he’ll be in college next week.
Giving his mother heart attacks aside, he’s turned into such a loving, kind little guy. He loves to read, loves to play, LOVES his baby brother and loves loves loves anything peanut butter and chocolate.
These Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookies are his favorite, obviously.
And they are kind of my favorite too. There isn’t anything out of the box crazy with these Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookies, it’s my classic chocolate chip cookie recipe with just a few tweaks. First, I decided to add more brown sugar than granulated sugar to give the cookies a bit more chew. And then next, of course, comes the peanut butter cups. Instead of chopping them small, I quartered them so there would be chunks of peanut butter cups and chocolate chips. It is a 100 percent win.
A simple, peanut buttery, chocolaty win.
