Treats...Day Two

Peanut Butter Munchies

Our first Christmas together Preston bought me a Christmas Cookie magazine, we were in college and so so so broke and something as simple as a magazine was a big deal. I found these cookies then, and to be honest I am not sure why they were in a Christmas magazine. With Chocolate and Peanut Butter as the main ingredients, they make perfect year round cookies. So Good!
