Did Someone Say CHOCOLATE?

Do you ever CRAVE chocolate?

What do you LOVE when you have a chocolate craving?
Now off to tie my new apron on and start baking! XO PEANUT BUTTER CUP COOKIES

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons milk
40 miniature chocolate covered peanut butter cups, unwrapped

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda; set aside.

Cream together the butter, sugar, peanut butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla and milk. Add the flour mixture; mix well.

Shape into 40 balls and place each into an ungreased mini muffin pan.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press a mini peanut butter cup into each ball.
Cool and carefully remove from pan.

I think these are sooooo good and they look so professional. Thanks for sharing. I have found that using a plastic baby spoon helps get them out of pan neatly.

MJ!!! Squeeeeeeal!!!!!!! Guess what??? Hubs bought a pop-up camper this weekend and he says I can't shabby/chic it up but I KNOW he's kidding cuz he said it with a "SMIRK" on his lips. Hah, it's mine, sweetpea...... It'll be so pretty when I "PINK" it up with ROSES(!) fabrics and paint it pink. Okay, okay, maybe not the outside but ya never know, cowgirl chick!!!

oooo, yummy...these look and sound so delicious, I am drooling all over my keyboard.
When I just can't stand another minute without CHOCOLATE, I make FUDGE with lots of pecans. Then, I sit down with a hugh glass of ice cold milk and eat fudge until I can't eat any more. Uh Oh...guess what I AM HUNGRY FOR NOW !
I can't wait to try your delicious cookies...

The real question is ... do I ever NOT crave chocolate? The answer is no ... never. And that sounds like one very good recipe! Thanks.

I just got my new Gooseberry Patch catalog and on the front cover is their new night lite. It is a small camper just like Girls on the Fly enjoy. It is just darling and I thought of you when I saw it.

Yup...these sound just like blossoms..and I can't keep them in the house long enough...

I'm guessin that I'll have to go home tonight and bake!


Donna Lynn said...

WOW WEE, Those sure look good! Come over and we can sit on my front porch and chow down, I will make some tea and we can visit!

I go to the dark dark chocolate when I have a craving, which is by the way everyday! :)

Hi Maryjane,

Hi Maryjane,
It's tough to get around to all the pink posts isn't it? But I just check out a few and make sure I stop by those who've stopped by to see me.
Oh, I picked up a copy of the magazine with your name. It was the cutest publication I think I've ever seen!
Have a lovely weekend!
Oh, have you been riding that pink bike of yours :)? I'm going to buy a Latte holder for mine. How fashionable is that!
