Dark Chocolate & Peanut Dreams Cookies

Dark Chocolate Dreams: peanut butter blended with dark chocolate.

Inspired by a jar of Peanut Butter & Co.'s Dark Chocolate Dreams, I attempted to bake a flourless peanut butter cookie. The recipe is incredibly easy and comes together fast.

Because of the added sugar and vanilla already in the chocolate peanut butter, you don't need to add a lot of extra sugar. The salty peanuts add a nice crunch and saltiness. While I don't think this recipe is perfect and needs a bit of playing around with, I have to admit the cookies are addicting. If you make these, let me know what you think!

Dark Chocolate & Peanut Dreams Cookies

1/2 c Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter
1/2 c all-natural crunchy peanut butter
1/4 c sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 c salted peanuts, coarsely ground

Cream together the chocolate pb and crunchy pb with the sugar.
Add the egg and vanilla and mix well.
Stir in the coarsely ground peanuts.

Drop tablespoons of the dough onto a cookie sheet.
Bake at 350* for 12-15 minutes.
Makes about 12 cookies.

These cookies taste best accompanied by a cold glass of your favorite milk.
