Chocolate - Peanut Butter Chip Drop Cookies

I know the peanut butter - chocolate parfait has been leading the poll this past week and it will probably win (it better win! I already bought all of the ingredients), so it might seem like a little too much PB & chocolate here on Paris Pastry. No way! There no such thing as TOO much PB & chocolate. Ever. Think of these drop cookies as a prelude to the poll's winner.

Chocolate - Peanut Butter Chip Drop Cookies

As far as their tastefulness goes, they taste waaay better than the Reese's Chewy Chocolate Cookies but not as mindblowing as the Peanut Butter Surprise Chocolate Cookies. Nevertheless, the peanut butter/chocolate combo never tires me so I rate them 4 out of 5.
