Bake N 4 Jake: November Cookie of the Month - Dangerous Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies




This month's cookie is a Dangerous Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookie.

I found this recipe in a Redbook magazine years ago, and made them for Jake quite often when he was younger. It is a chocolate and peanut butter cookie base with chocolate chips and chopped peanut butter cups in every bite. These have the texture of a peanut butter cookie and -with 3TBS of batter per cookie- they are definately big enough to satisfy a hungry college student. Jake is home this weekend, so I thought I better whip these up so he can take them home with him.

After tasting one of these again, I must say I had forgotten how very good they are. These definately are a not something that you want around your house if you are suffering from an empty nest and a slower metabolism. If this sounds like you, I recommend that you file these under your "dangerous" recipes and bake them only when you know you will have people around to help you devour them!

(See the "nutrition" information at the bottom of the recipe- I think this is why they taste so good!)
