  1. gahhh I am so mad! My access to hbogo got taken away so I haven't been able to watch any of this season of Girls!!!

    but I digress: cookies: THESE COOKIES look phenomenal! so perfect!

  2. Free cookies make my life. But these chocolate PB cookies would make it EVEN MORE.

  3. Maybe you should try a different brand of chocolate PB? Have you ever tried the one from Peanut Butter & Co.? I'm always tempted, but I'm afraid to try it because I might start digging into the jar all of the time, I should buy it, make these cookies, and share them so there is less guilt.

    1. No, I haven't, but I've been tempted. I bet all of those peanut butters are delicious!

  4. I love all your cookie recipes!!! This is a classic flavor combo!

  5. Chocolate peanut butter is new to me - we don't get it here. Just like I am yet to see season 3 of Girls because it hasn't come out on DVD here yet (I don't get pay TV, where it screened). I do like Girls though - I bought both series on DVDs because of the great reviews it got.
