Peanut Butter/Nutella Cookies

I love peanut butter and chocolate so wanted to try something different. Decided since I had some Novella to try blending it with the peanut butter. I also had never tried
Stevia so this time used it in place of the Splenda Granulars. They turn out the same with either. We are trying to live healthier so have been using sugar substitues instead of sugar for a while now. My husband told me thirty one years ago that he married me for my chocolate chip cookies and guess my baking is doing the job since he is still eating my baking! He loves these cookies.
