These mouthwatering chocolate chip cookies are made with the addition of peanut butter, a match that just can't be beat. The cookies are sure to be a hit with friends and family!
Feel free to adjust ingredients to use what you have on hand and your family's tastes. Add some peanut butter chips along with the chocolate chips if you like, or use milk chocolate chips or chunks instead of the standard semisweet chocolate chips. Use creamy or chunky peanut butter in the recipe. The cookies are truly amazing in both flavor and texture, but if you like some vanilla flavor, add about 1/2 teaspoon. If you crave more texture, go ahead and add a handful of chopped pecans or walnuts. Or fold some chopped roasted peanuts into the batter.
