The BEST PB Choc Chip Cookies

The BEST PB Choc Chip Cookies

A few weeks ago my friend Patty brought me the Cake Boss {Buddy Valasto’s} Cookbook, and I have loved everything I have made from it so far! I made a batch of his peanut butter chocolate chip cookies for my kids and babysitter the other night when my husband and I went on a date to watch the new man of steel movie (which was awesome!) And my kids have not stopped raving about them since! {My son Braden who’s 4 is the biggest cookie-dough fiend I know!} So today I decided to make some more. Since this recipe is a new family fave and i’m sure I will be referring to it a lot, I decided to write it up: I didn’t change the ingredients, but I re-wrote the directions to make them a lot simpler and shorter. Instead of rolling them out into a log shape and cutting them (which took a whole page to explain) I decided to just make 1/4 cup, big, soft ones and change up the cooking temperatures and times. These are by far the best PB chocolate chip cookies I have ever had! I LOVE this recipe! I know you guys will too!

Home Made Peanut Butter Cups

Not long ago I took a meal to my friend Heather, who just had a new baby, and it was such a disaster, I promised I would bring her another meal this week to make up for it. I had a delicious fool-proof dinner in mind, but I was all out of ideas for dessert, so I turned to my pinterest board! I found a delicious recipe for chocolate peanut butter bars that I had wanted to try for a while. This is one of those recipes that is bitter sweet to discover. It’s SO quick & easy to make, requires just a few ingredients I always have on hand, and is so totally delicious, that it’s a problem. ‘I’m glad I discovered it. I’m not glad I discovered it. I’m glad I discovered it….’ (i’m picking daisy petals here). I made a huge pan, gave half to Heather and kept half for my family- and by the end of the day they were ALL gone. I don’t know how that happened. I must have accidentally sucked them up…. when I was doing the vacuuming…. in my fridge….??!
