A couple of weeks ago I was talking with my friends Kelly and Jen about nuts and cookies. Opinions are divided, some like nuts in their cookies, some don’t. But even between those who loves nutty cookies, which ones to choose is another story.

The majority would probably say walnuts or almonds, and just around winter holidays pick macadamia or pistachios, but what about peanuts? Are they just for peanut butter cookies?

The first time I saw this recipe for peanut chocolate cookies I was a little skeptical. I was making assumptions, so to speak.

No worries, my friends. I’ve learned my lesson! Or so I hope.

These cookies are loaded with grated bittersweet chocolate and chopped roasted peanuts. They spread while baking turning out chewy with crispy edges. Sweet, nutty and chewy – all you need is a glass of cold milk!

    These cookies look lovely. I am hit and miss with nuts in my cookies. Sometimes I love it, others not so much. I am thinking these would be perfect as an ice cream sandwich too.

  3. Kitchen Belleicious says

    about 3 or 4- who am I kidding- like 6 of these cookies and a big glass of ice coffee and I would be in my element!

  4. Jocelyn @BruCrew Life says

    Oh, what I would give for a glass of milk and a stack of those yummy cookies to appear on the desk in front of me. If I blink 3 times maybe???

    I usually don’t like nuts in my baked goods but I make an exception for peanuts. I think their salty flavor goes perfectly with sweets!
