Sometimes I find myself annoyed if I can’t come up with a new recipe. I live in this world where I feel like as a blogger it’s my duty to come up with new and fun recipes. Who wants another recipe for a chocolate chip cookie? Aren’t there enough of those?

When I was asked to try out the new Nestlé Toll House DelightFulls™ I racked my brain trying to figure out a new and inventive dessert. I wanted something to make my readers happy and to show off my flashy recipe development skills.

After I thought about it for a while I decided to go against my desire to be different. I thought about my mom. I thought about when I was a kid and the time we spent together in the kitchen. We would make up a huge batch of dough and make tray after tray of warm delicious chocolate chip cookies. Of course I would steal bites of dough and she would mumble something about how I’m not supposed to eat raw dough.

What can I say. I like to live life on the edge.

So I went into the kitchen and took a trip down memory lane. I made a simple brown sugar filled dough and threw in some small dark chocolate chips and the peanut butter stuffed DelightFulls™. Since I wanted to change it up (and didn’t feel like making sheet after sheet of cookies) I opted to instead press the dough into a small jelly roll pan.

After I pulled my cookies out of the oven I let them cool and cut them into bars. They were soft, chocolaty and had just a touch of peanut butter flavor. Even though they were simple they reminded me of being a kid in the kitchen with my mom.

They reminded me of home.

    can I just use 2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour?

      Hi Hanna! Using just all-purpose flour is fine 🙂 Hope you enjoy the cookies!

    Sometimes the best recipes are ones that come from our childhood. These remind me of the chocolate chip bars my mum used to make…but even better because of the peanut butter!

    I love your post. I don’t expect you to come up with a new recipe all the time. Just something you know about, but I don’t that you share. It’s lovely.
    Perfect example.
