Chocolate Reese's Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Last week as I was catching up on my bloglovin’ feed, I came across a recipe that instantly caught my eye. The Image of perfectly shaped cookies all studded with a combination of mini chocolate chips and a rainbow of multi colored M&Ms, immediately made me realize I had struck gold. Once I got past the image I read the title of this post, “How to make perfect M&M cookies” and given the fact that her cookies looked so perfect indeed, I just couldn’t resist and had to give the recipe a try.

I chose to add my own little twist to these and boy oh boy, they turned out dangerously good. I mean what’s not to love…

A) We are talking chocolate and peanut butter.
B) They were perfectly shaped and chewy, with just a touch of crispness around the edge.
C) We are talking chocolate and peanut butter.

What more is there to say but a huge thanks to Picky Palate for sharing her secret ingredient with us.

As the lucky recipient of one of these cookies – fresh out of the oven I might add – I have to say it was the most delectably moist and yummy cookie I think I have ever tasted. No lie!
