Buckeye Chocolate Chip Cookies

Nor Mac


My husband loves chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cups. He had a cookie during his travels that he wanted me to try to make. How can you go wrong? Peanut butter filling sandwiched between two chocolate chip cookies. They are then dipped in chocolate. The Cookies are absolutely delicious! We are over the moon for these cookies. I am adding this to one of my list of favorites!
