I ate these for lunch the other day.
No seriously, I did. I came home from work, ate two cookies, let Izzy girl out and went back to work. I felt like a whole new person…had so much energy! 😉
I don’t advise doing that, however. 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 chocolate chunk chips – I LOVE big chunks of chocolate in my cookies and these chocolate chunk chips from Trader Joe’s are truly the best!
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.
