The weekend is almost here so let’s make cookies! Whatever your plans are for the next two days, cookies are always a good idea. Visiting family, picnic at the park (because the Spring weather is finally here!), sleepovers, crafting sessions, game day, movie night – a batch of freshly baked peanut butter cookies that melt in your mouth and are packed with chocolate chips is recommended.

I am crazy about this recipe for so many reasons! It’s want-cookies-now kind of recipe because it takes 10 minutes to mix up the dough and another 10 to bake a batch. We are using melted butter which also means to mixer required. You can whip up the dough with a spatula. YES!

Peanut butter and chocolate combo is irresistible! I will never refuse a cookie with this combo. This recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies from Love From the Oven look crazy good and I know I could eat a whole dozen!

If that’s not selling you, let me tell you that these cookies are thick, perfectly peanut buttery and each bite literally melts in your mouth. SO GOOD!

Please, notice that the dough is more on the drier side, you do need to roll a scoop of it in your hands to make a ball. It is not a sticky dough at all.

If you are really short on time or don’t feel like scooping and rolling the dough – press it onto a 8″ square (for thick bars, like I did HERE) or 13″ x 9″ pan for more and thinner bars, bake and cut. It’s a win win either way!

To see how easy it is to whip up the dough, check out our YouTube video for the Reese’s Bars (it’s using the same cookie dough base)!
