Peanut Butter White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut butter white chocolate chip cookies

You will love these peanut butter white chocolate chip cookies because they have peanut butter. And white chocolate. What could be better than when peanut butter and chocolate marry together? Nothing!

Guess what guys? Today is National Peanut Butter Lovers Day. A day for YOU and ME and all peanut butter lovers to come together to celebrate the fabulousness of peanut butter! How are you going to celebrate?!?! It may also be important to note that today is national pig day as well, so perhaps you should eat some bacon with your Peanut Butter White Chocolate Chip Cookie? Additionally, I feel compelled to tell you that tomorrow is “national old stuff day” followed with “If pets had thumbs day” on Sunday! To keep up with all of these “national” holidays, checkout Hallmark’s Ultimate Holiday Site. I wouldn’t want you to miss out on “National Cheese Doodle Day” (that’s Tuesday in case you’re wondering…).

These cookies are to die for! What could possibly be better than a marriage between peanut butter and white chocolate chips? I am having a hard time coming up with something. If I were to think of three words to describe these cookies it’d be soft, soft, soft. But not chewy soft. A different kind of soft.

Cookies are a fab dessert for you to make because you can make them when you only have 30 minutes to spare in between the basketball game for your son, or your daughters band concert, after taking your dog for a walk, or after making a family of snowmen in your backyard.

Sometimes the best recipes come together when you get creative and work with what you already have on hand. You should try it sometime! I had half a bag of white chocolate chips that needed to get used (the other half were used for Double Chocolate Brownie Cake), and peanut butter is always, ALWAYS a top choice ingredient here. Put the two together and what do you get? Soft peanut butter white chocolate chip cookies.

Crowd pleasing, baby. And soft. But not chewy soft. Go try them and see what I mean….
