Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Recipe by ErikaNY

I made these at Christmas time of last year to put onto my cookies trays for co-workers and family - they have since become a favorite! Who can beat the combo of chocolate and peanut butter together?

I see this recipe was posted way back in 2005 - I just found it in 2013 - and it was a terrific find. I added a few more nuts, personal preference, but this is our current fav. Yummy!
