    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a highly-rated recipe taken from All Recipes.Com submitted by Joanna Knudsen --- the only alteration I made was I omitted the peanut butter baking chips and reduced the chocolate baking chips --- the peanut butter cups must be chopped then frozen before adding to the cookie batter, or they will mush up while mixing

      I love this recipe but I swapped the quantities of butter and pb to make it more peanutbuttery. Once I addes reases's pieces and they were like a piece of heaven. I had to throw away the last few cookies because I couldn't stop eating them. My friends often ask (beg) me to bake these. Although my personal trainer is not a fan.

      I followed the instructions, but for some reason they just weren't very good. In fact, I baked one batch and ended up throwing the rest of the cookie dough in the garbage. I won't be making these again.

      My family did not like these. We thought they were way too sweet and not chocolatey enough.
