Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yum. Peanut butter. I remember when I was in fourth grade I would eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich everyday. Usually the ratio of peanut butter to jelly was way off, but it was still really tasty. There would be so much peanut butter compared to the jelly that it would stick to the roof of my mouth and I had to drink tons of apple juice to get it off! Eventually, I moved on from peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to peanut butter and chocolate sandwiches. Actually not chocolate, but nutella sandwiches. Doesn't it make your stomach rumble just thinking about nutella? I know mine does. Nutella was probably the greatest food I tried when I was nine. I thought it was amazing. Eating chocolate for lunch, And Breakfast? Sign me up!
Well I know there's a lot of recipes for chocolate chip peanut butter cookies, but today I was remembering my fourth grade year full of peanut butter sandwich lunches, and decided to make these peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies. They were amazing, and definitely satisfied my peanut butter sandwich craving. Oh, yea, I was craving a peanut butter sandwich but there was not bread. Sadness...
These cookies were yummy! Peanut butter dough with chocolate chips in every bite!
