It’s no secret that I love chocolate…and peanut butter.
My favorite cookie is oatmeal raisin and I dislike baking cookies, so these are the perfect cookie for me!
These perfect little cookies are perfectly perfect for those moments when you are desperately craving something sweet and chocolatey, but don’t have a lot of time (or patience) to make a full-blown batch of cookies.
This little cookie really is as easy as it sounds, and a great recipe to make with kids if you have any little hands eager to help in the kitchen. I’m sure they’ll love eating the “dough” straight from the bowl like I do! The only suggestion I have is when you drop the dough onto the wax paper-lined sheets, they will pretty much set in whatever shape they are already in, with minimal spreading. After I realized this I used the back of the spoon to smooth them out and flatten them a bit to give them more of a “cookie” shape.
