Believe it or not, I rarely think about using peanut butter and chocolate in a dessert. I usually get my fix when I’m visiting my parents in the summer. There’s a great little water ice shop near them called Diane’s that serves the best chocolate peanut butter water ice. I digress though.

So I started developing a recipe for the perfect batch of chocolate peanut butter cookies.  These are one of the richest tasting cookies to have ever come out my oven. I think they are a perfect balance between chocolate and peanut butter. Oh and if you like your cookies thick and almost cake-like, this is the recipe for you.

I love chocolate but I thought I’d try something fruity for a change. Have you ever had pate de fruit? They are chewy fruit jellies made with fruit puree and that has been cooked down with sugar. Once it is poured and cooled, they are cut and dusted with sugar. They end up looking like […]
