If Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Stookies as a recipe title has you scratching your head let me shed some light. I noticed a trend for stuffed cookies and have been dreaming of trying them. But, in true cookie monster style, I thought I’d be too busy stuffing my face with my version to get two words – stuffed cookies – out. So, I decided to contract stuffed cookies to Stookies. It’s a fun word to say. Try it. Stookies! And, I think my Australian friends – who abbreviate EVERYTHING – would be proud of me.
If you love peanut butter cups and chocolate chip cookies, I hope you’ll give these a go. They are super easy to make and the results are a delicious reward for your efforts.Print
Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Stookies
If you love peanut butter cups and chocolate chip cookies apart, wait until you taste them together. These Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Chip Stookies are chocolate chip cookies stuffed with peanut butter cups. I just shortened the stuffed cookie to “stookie.” I hope the name sticks cause I like saying it.
