The holiday season is officially upon us and the snow is starting to fall (where I live) and the temperatures have fallen. I have even started sending my kids to school with their winter coats, hats and boots! When the temperatures drop, I find myself in the kitchen baking and trying out recipes, new and old. I’m a major chocolate lover. I’m also a peanut butter lover. And, when you put the two ingredients together, I am in chocolate and peanut butter heaven! These chocolate peanut butter chip cookies are soft, chewy, bakery style. Perfect for dunking in a large tall glass of cold milk.

Or, if you feel like giving them as a gift you could also add the dry ingredients to a large mason jar and write the recipe on a cute and tag and voila! A super cute and inexpensive holiday gift. Perfect for last minute gift giving ideas.

These chocolate peanut butter chip cookies are perfect for those holiday cookie exchanges. I find if I don’t make them, I have friends asking where they are!

These cookies are fantastic when they are warm and chewy. I also like to reheat in the microwave about 10 seconds and enjoy with a cold glass of milk or my morning coffee!
