When I baked this cookie, I was wondering if I was opening myself to a new name for myself. The current fancy being Peanut butter. The peanut butter chips were such push that I had to try different combinations. Plus as I said I was baking a huge batch to pack for my nephew and niece and that just gave me all the push required to bake new varieties.
Though this dough again had peanut meal and peanut butter, the cocoa ensured it's masked. And of course the dough also had chocolate chip. It was altogether a new experience mixing peanut with chocolate and if you like the peanut taste, you will surely love this.
The peanut butter chips were getting disappeared as such and I didn't want to let the opportunity go by not trying it out in different forms. Trust me, the baked chips comes out all strong, only to softly crumble down almost melting down, when you tough the tip. That's such a wonderful sight I tell you! Imagine biting into this cookie, with peanut butter chip, melting in your mouth. Wow
Anyway even the boys couldn't detect anything different in this cookie and everything was promptly devoured. I particularly love the tops!
