So many of us are chocolate lovers. I am certainly one of them, although I do love salty too. Today was definitely a need for chocolate day. Not only has it been somewhat stressful and absolutely exhausting at work this last month, but there have been a few things recently that have caused some emotional strain. Soooo, I was in search for chocolate today. What better thing to do when stressed? Bake!!! ;-) Or, exercise but that is certainly not happening today, HA!
Well, in December I started planning all of the different yummy treats I would bake for the holiday's. My plan was to give presents to all of my co-workers, family and some friends a taste of everything that I made. Well, I kinda went overboard with it all, and therefore did not have time to make everything on my list. Soooooo, for the month of February, I am making Chocolate Peanut Butter cookies. How yummy is that? I am actually making them for my get together with C.A.M.A (you might here me refer to CAMA every once in a while, it stands for Cara, April, Melody, and Annjeri who are former roommates of mine) and also a family gathering with my Dad and Sis this weekend.
So I started the process of my cookie baking as soon as I came home. Well, yesterday I made the dough which saved a bunch of time.
The recipe said that the cookies would take 8-9 minutes to cook, but our oven is not working properly, so in actuality they took close to 15 minutes. Ugh!
Here is my first batch. They are supposed to be a chewy cookie so I am thinking that is why they seem a bit too soft and they came off the pan scrunched up.
I think regardless of how they look, in the end they are still chocolate with yummy peanut butter chips that will just melt in your mouth. Yummmm....
