Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

My fellow work-runners and I started a “tradition” of bringing in baked goods to counteract our runs. This is a recipe I used a couple of years ago for a Super Bowl party and subsequently forgot about it. Very sad that I forgot about it, because they’re pretty AMAZING, if I do say so myself. I re-found it in my recipe box and resurrected it. I had to guess on the amount of sugar (I foolishly had forgotten to write it down), but I guessed correctly. Voila!
