Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies


This is an incredible combination of two classic cookie favorites!  When deciding which kind to make for a party this weekend, I asked the family which they preferred.  The answer was “Chocolate chip!” and “Peanut Butter”!  Soooo, I decided to combine the two and came up with a new family favorite!   With the sharp chocolate flavor of dark chocolate chips combined with peanut buttery sweetness, these are delicious, moist and easy!  Also, this recipe makes 5 dozen cookies!  Enough for a hungry crowd!
