Is everyone ready for the big game this weekend? I’m still putting the finishing touches on my Super Bowl menu, but I know for sure that we will have plenty of chicken wings, barbecue meatballs, and chips & dip to munch on while we watch the game.
Oh yes, and to satisfy our sweet tooth’s, I made a batch of super-sized Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Cookies. This is a basic chocolate chip cookie recipe, but I folded a large amount of mini peanut butter cups into the dough, in addition to semi-sweet chocolate chips.
The cookies are big, soft, chewy, and because they’re so chock-full of peanut butter cups and chocolate chips, we’re guaranteed to get a gooey nugget of sweetness in every bite.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and for you football fans out there – have fun watching the game!
