These mouthwatering cookies are made with peanut butter and chocolate chips, a match that just can't be beat. Add some peanut butter chips along with the chocolate chips if you like. Use creamy or chunky peanut butter in the recipe. The cookies are truly amazing in both flavor and texture. 

Feel free to adjust ingredients to use what you have on hand. Use milk chocolate chips or semi-sweet chunks instead of standard semisweet chocolate chips. If you like a little more texture, use chunky peanut butter or add some chopped peanuts or another kind of chopped nut.
