You can’t really go wrong with chocolate and peanut-butter, can you? If you disagree, just stop reading now.
These are my favorite sweets to make mostly because they’re easy and Ian loves them. (Let’s be honest, I do too.)
Bonus: The dough is amazing.
Want to make ’em? Here’s the recipe.
– Chocolate Chip Peanut-Butter Bites –
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup peanut butter (I use crunchy Jif)
1/2 teas. salt
1/2 teas. baking soda
1/2 teas. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
handful (or 2!) of chocolate chips
Nestle semi-sweet chunks are my favorite, but chocolate chips work just as well.
Combine all of your ingredients in a mixing bowl, there’s really no rhyme or reason to it, I just throw everything in, chocolate last.
Form balls and bake at 350 for 9 minutes. (The actual recipe says 10, but I find that 9 makes them perfectly doughy).
They can be made into cookies too by pressing them with a fork as soon as they come out of the oven, but we prefer the bites around our house.
Pour yourself a glass of milk and enjoy
…as if you can after all the dough you’ll most likely consume while preparing them.
