when i find an awesome recips, i feel obligated to share it with everyone i know, so they can bask in its goodness. i have been making these peanut butter cookies for quite some time, but decided on a whim to add some chopped pieces of cooking chocolate into the mix and it improved their already great taste by about 600%. so from now on... that's what they'll be. haha
they are pretty simple and mostly use things you would have on hand... so here you are!

1/2 cup choc chips (or chopped chocolate)
