I ate these for lunch the other day.
I don’t advise doing that. I am a 3 meals a day kind of girl but I was in rush and they were there…on the counter…staring at me…so I ate them and then I ate another one when I got home from work. Don’t judge now.
Point here…so so so good! They’re sweet, chocolatey, peanut buttery, fluffy and chewy. I used large milk chocolate chips that I found at the trail mix bar (best idea ever) at my grocery store. I LOOOOVED the big chunks of chocolate. You might have seen this pic on my INSTAGRAM page – I forgot how addicting chocolate chips were. Note to self…never leave chocolate chips out on the counter…ever again.
These are also fabulous with a tall glass of milk. They soak up milk just like an oreo…but faster!
Sometimes I wonder where my inspiration comes from or why I decide to make what I make. Well, these clouds of goodness were inspired by this CLEVER LITTLE SNACK that some of us indulge in every once awhile. Of course, I was having a craving and then it popped into my head so there you have it. Never under estimate the power of chocolate and peanut butter – it really does make you feel good.
Like really really good.
