Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies


Peanut plus chocolate is always a great combo together if you ask me. The slight saltiness of the peanut butter complement the creamy sweet chocolate.
I have seen a lot of food companies in the last couple of months coming out with peanut butter and chocolate foods like coffee creamer and a doughnut chain coming out with a doughnut with a chocolate glaze and peanut butter drizzle.
You would think that they would come out maybe around Halloween time, it is just around the corner I need to find a countdown, because the colors look like black and orange.
These cookies are chocolaty and fudgy like a brownie with slightly saltiness of peanut butter. Yum! I tried a new-ish product for this recipe, peanut butter powder, for the drizzle.
