These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies are packed full of the best combination there is. Prepare your tastebuds for a treat!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Thrilled to partner with Karo® Corn Syrup to bring you these decadent cookies perfect for surprising your loved ones for Valentine’s Day.  Seriously a chocolate lover’s dream.  With just a hint of peanut butter and chocolate chunks throughout, these are going to become a new favorite in your home!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

You’ll use Karo® Dark Corn Syrup for these cookies.  So fun using Karo® Syrup all year round.  You may be familiar with Karo as a key ingredient in Pecan Pie, but there’s plenty of fun ways to use Karo® Syrup all year round.  It gives a dreamy chewy texture to cookies, and gives the perfect sweetness that allows the chocolate and peanut butter to really stand out.  Try adding some of your favorite chocolate chips, candies and nuts to personalize your own batch.  Have fun with it.  Baking is my favorite way to show how much you care for someone, so bake a little extra for your loved ones.
