Chewy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Today is the big day… the big reveal… the big share. For those of you who are food bloggers and on twitter  you may have been hearing a lot of buzz lately about The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap that was organized by Julie from The Little Kitchen and Lindsay from Love and Olive Oil.

Matches were sent out last month and I sent my cookies out last week. I can finally share with everyone the cookies that I baked and the three lucky recipients! Here were the three food bloggers I sent cookies too:

Rocio from Rosy Girl Baked Goods

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing what cookies I received, the recipes, and of course the blogger behind the cookies! *I did not receive cookies from the same people whom I sent too!

Now, on to the cookie I baked for this special event. I don’t make many chocolate based cookies, and have had this cookie recipe bookmarked for longer than I can remember. I love the chocolate/ peanut butter combo, and just had a feeling these cookies would be amazing. I am a fan of the chewy-soft cookie. Some like theirs hard, thin, thick, etc… I like mine chewy and soft, and of course preferably fresh out of the oven! These cookies encompass everything I love about a cookie and more. The ratio of chocolate to peanut butter (in my opinion) is perfect! I hope you’ll bake these cookies up and share them with family, friends, and neighbors!
