My Chocolate Peanut Butter Addiction

Chocolate Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies

 So, I’ve been on a chocolate peanut butter kick the last couple weeks. Can’t seem to get enough of the combo!  I’m seriously thinking I have a problem. I found this recipe a couple years ago and make it all the time. The creamy peanut butter filling is to die for! I usually end up with a little extra and end up licking the bowl clean!  It’s actually another recipe I almost didn’t try because it seemed “too hard” with all steps. But I assure you, they are worth it!
