Double Chocolate Chunk Peanut Cookies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sharon123

From Southern Living magazine, these are mouth watering good! To have cookies for guests, freeze dough in an airtight container up to 1 month. They will love the combination of peanut butter, peanuts, and chocolate chunks!

Sharon these are so delicious! Chocolate and peanut better were made for each other! I love the addition of cinnamon, and I try to use it when I can in my every day cooking because I just think it's good for you. Made for KK's 24 Days of Cookies event!
