    Mirj's Note:

    Not your regular run-of-the-mill chocolate chip cookie. Funnily enough, in Israel, Spanish peanuts are called American peanuts.

      These cookies were so easy to make. I made them for company and everyone loved them. The cookie itself had a light texture, the chips and peanuts put them over the edge!!!!! a must try!

      These chocolate cookies are delicious! I can't believe I'm the first one person to give them a try! The Spanish peanuts are a wonderful addition. The cookie came out soft and chewy, just the way I like them! I wouldn't change a thing. I will definitely make these again! Thanks Mirj!

      Extremely fudgey, nice & chewy! The cookies were quite fragile, though - I made sure I cooled on the baking sheets but they still cracked around the edges when removing. When they were in the container together, they kinda drooped and moulded to the cookies underneath & crumbled when trying to take one out of the container. I did end up using peanut butter chips in place of the chocolate as that was what I had on hand - enjoyed that flavour combo.
