Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Is there anything better than the smell of fresh baked cookies? With back to school season around the corner, this is a fun cookie recipe that kids will love to come home to, or be surprised with when the open their lunch sack at school. I love chocolate and my husband loves peanut butter, so this cookie is the perfect marriage of our taste buds. I hope you enjoy it as much as we have!

This recipe makes 16 good-sized cookies or 20 small cookies. The small size is good for lunches, but the bigger ones are perfect with an ice cream sundae! Check out the recipe below – you can pin it or print it for later!
