Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are certain foods that are even better paired with another and that is how I feel about peanut butter and chocolate. Sure I like each separately, but once they are put together they create a taste combination that is almost beyond description. These peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are so easy to make and they come so out chewy that they scream to be eaten with a glass of milk. If you make these, beware, you will not stop at one, or two, or three……. 🙂
