Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

February 23, 2011

This cookie recipe is a chocolate variation of our favorite peanut butter cookie recipe.

Go ahead, help yourself.  They’re oh-so-very good.  Please be cautious though…  For next thing you know, you’ll have eaten far too many and have yourself quite a tummy ache!  Not that we would know anything about that!  *ahem*
