I've seen chocolate being added to a lot of things you wouldn't expect lately (chocolate apple pie?!?) and these cookies threw me for quite a loop with their little criss crosses! Where's the light brown?!?

Hi! Just found your blog and it looks really great! I love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, it's my fav. Have you ever tried the cupcake recipe with just a box of cake mix and a can of soda? I've wanted to try that. Can't wait to keep reading :)

I've had chocolate + peanut butter together dozens of times, but never have I thought to combine them in a peanut butter cookie this way - I always just assumed it was chocolate chips. This is amazing, and such an easy recipe - thank you!
