I got this off the internet years ago from a dinner board and have been making it since. Very basic mix, so feel free to add different amounts of each ingredient to suit your tastes. Makes nice gifts for the holidays ! Don't forget to top your cocoa with marshmallow creme.
There aren't too many things better than peanut butter and chocolate mixed together !
These cookies have 3 different chips, but feel free to change the chips according to your preferences. I use a #40 cookie scoop, which is similar in size to a heaping tablespoon. This recipe calls for 3 bags of chips ! If you replace the shortening with more margarine, you will have a crisp cookie.
Flavored butters are the best ! My family has this on hand around the holidays, but it can be made anytime. Great on yeasty rolls or crackers. We make it with the jellied cranberry for a smoother consistency.
