Chocolate-peanut frozen cookies
4 hr 15 min
If you love dark chocolate, you're bound to love these cookies. Peanut butter is chocolate’s long-time best friend and in these treats it compliments chocolate’s richness giving each bite even more of an indulgent taste. No baking is required for these little goodies and they only take about 15 minutes to mix up. They’re best enjoyed when served frozen. Let them sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving if you prefer your frozen desserts on the softer side. You can easily double or triple the recipe to make ahead and keep them on hand. Transfer them from the wax the paper and store in freezer safe container or plastic zip top bag.
