What is it about kids that brings out the over the top in us? Indeed, might I say, garish in us?
I would not normally put 1 cup of peanut butter chips, 1 cup of chocolate chips, 1 bag of baking M&Ms and 1 bag of baking peanut butter cups into a double batch of my Sweet & Salty Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies. But you know, it just seemed like something the kids would like.
And I was right. And it turns out they were right as well, because they were really awfully good.
I made these for my kids, and I brought some of the dough, chilled, to then freeze in balls and leave for our hosts at our first stop on our trip. We have made it to the second stage, my in laws, and I thought I would tide you over with these pictures–and a link to the recipe. They continue to be my favorite peanut butter cookie.
