Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies were a simple creation after a day at work and evening weeding and cleaning up the yard. I wanted to relax and bake something sweet but a little different so I started with the basic sugar to fat ratio and then added in some love.

The secret is the addition of some peanut butter for a nutty creaminess, double chocolate chips for that deep dark chocolate flavor, marshmallows for a chewy surprise and cinnamon for added richness.
