pb lovers The Cookie Monster Bakes Part 2   Chocolate Filled Double Peanut Butter CookiesIf there’s anything I love more than chocolate, it’s peanut butter AND chocolate. So, just a few days after even the crumbs of the double chocolate chip cookies are gone, I made another type of cookies.

This time, I tried out the chocolate filled double delight peanut butter cookies recipe I found over at Baking Bites. I did some minor changes and the result is this…

2. Cut about 4 tbsp of palm sugar

Note: I added some palm sugar because it has a special fragrant flavour you can’t get from any other sugar. If you don’t have it, you can always use white sugar (about 1/2 cup) instead.
