Today’s post is sponsored by Nestle Toll House, but my love for their DelightFulls filled morsels is all my own!

Cookies. It’s all about the cookies – Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies to be exact. Cookies are my absolute favorite thing to bake, and I am constantly experimenting with new cookie recipes and ingredient substitutions. When Nestle Toll House introduced their new DelightFulls, my mind began racing…what could I make with these tasty little filled chocolate chips?! My first try was a Peanut Butter Surprise Cookie recipe and it’s pretty delicious, if I do say so myself!

Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies Recipe

I’ve been making this recipe for close to 20 twenty years. Yeah, I know. I just dated myself.

It’s the “Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie” recipe from ABC Distributing’s “Grandma’s Favorite Cookies” cookbook. Did you ever work in an office that received the ABC Distributing catalog? It was so full of awesome stuff!!

I made just a few changes to the original recipe to suit Angeline’s tastes – she isn’t a fan of pecans in her cookies. It’s a shame because my favorite cookie is a chocolate chip and pecan cookie, which is the original recipe that this Peanut Butter Surprise Cookie Recipe is based on.

Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies Recipe

If you love peanut butter, but a full-fledged peanut butter cookie is just a little too much for your taste, this Peanut Butter Surprise Cookie is going to rock your world.

The peanut butter melts within the Nestle Toll House DelightFulls chocolate chip and when you bite into the cookie, it’s like silky peanut butter goodness exploding on your tongue!

Disclosure: There is no real explosion.

    Oh my these look wonderful. Next to chocolate and mint, chocolate and PB is my favorite together. I’m like you, I like pecans in my cookies but my kids do not.
