Warm peanut butter cookies are delicious in their own right. These peanut butter cookies are no exception. When given the choice, I always choose chunky peanut butter. Sadly, our giant jar of chunky PB is like the red headed step child in our house. Always passed over for the creamy version by my kids.

I knew in cookies they would never know the difference! And since I was making chunky peanut butter cookies, it was only fitting to use chocolate chunks (in addition to milk chocolate morsels). I used Green and Black’s Dark chocolate 70% cocoa bars for this recipe!

I doubled the recipe and scooped the second batch into cookie dough balls onto a baking sheet. I stuck that in the freezer while I baked the rest of the cookies. When I was done baking, I took the frozen dough balls and put them in a large ziploc bag (marked clearly) and put it back in the freezer. Now I can enjoy fresh baked cookies spur of the moment without making a kitchen mess!
