I’ve had cookies on my mind the last few weeks and I can’t get enough. These are like a refined version of a peanut butter blossom cookie, but with better chocolate and a better cookie. Peanut butter and chocolate were created to be together.
The cookies are slightly crunchy with a little chew in them. They are light and happen to be gluten free, which is an added bonus! The easy ganache is a great addition to this childhood favorite. Enjoy these with a big glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee because you'll need it. You'll feel like a dog that got into the peanut butter jar.
Need a Super Bowl treat? Throw some sprinkles in your teams colors onto the ganache before it cools! Some Super Bowl treats are so over the top but these are just right because they are not too sweet and not chocked full of food coloring.
In other news, it might be a little bit until my next post because I AM MOVING! Goodbye Lake Tahoe and hello wine country! I got a nonprofit food related job (yay and yay!) in Sonoma (yay)! I received the job offer last Wednesday and have been scrambling to find a place to live and pack up my stuff!
