I have had cookies in the past that are PB and chocolate. They have been very dry. I decided to make a chocolate cookie dough that wasn't so dry. I added a peanut butter filling to them and put a chocolate topping on top. I got a very awesome result. Enjoy with a nice glass of milk or cup of coffee. They are perfectly Yummy!
