I have become completely obsessed with this Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake. It’s a moist and chewy peanut butter cookie stuffed with chocolate chips and chopped Reese’s. And as if that wasn’t enough, It's topped it with a delicious chocolate frosting, more chopped Reese’s and chocolate sauce.
