For Chocolate's Sake


Since I found out that am pregnant and though I know that I should watch my caffeine intake in addition to the fact that chocolate has some caffeine in it; I just can’t stay away from anything chocolate. Sigh!!! It is so heavenly, yet I know that all the work out I need to do after having my baby will not be that heavenly!!! Oh well!!!
Tonight, I decided to try another recipe from the girl who ate everything.  “A chocolate Peanut butter Chocolate Chip cookies”, so can you say chocolate twice…that makes me a happy camper.
So in order not to ramble too much here is the recipe. Try it and it will be one of your favorite cookies to make.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup peanut butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
