I needed chocolate today. Peanut butter sounded good too. The hardest part about this recipe was waiting for it to cool so I could cut into them and eat one (or two)! You could add chopped nuts, but I’m the only one who enjoys them in baked goods, so I left them out. These bars are easy to throw together and make a delicious snack, or in my case, a great way to satisfy a chocolate craving.
Note: If you like nuts in your cookies, add 1 cup of chopped salted peanuts when adding the chocolate.
This is a pretty basic chocolate chip cookie dough with the addition of peanut butter. If you already have a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, compare yours to this, then add peanut butter in proportion.
