Goober Doodles, really, yes really. It always seems that I make all kinds of cookies and never know what to call them except by their fourteen ingredients; so today I present you with Goober Doodles. A thick peanut butter cookie filled with chocolate chips and Goobers, you know chocolate covered peanuts. You can never go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter and these cookies will not disappoint. I bought the Goobers for a different recipe idea but these cookies were just begging for more pea-nutty goodness. I will be making these again soon, as like everything else in my house, they were gone before I knew it. Someone asked me the other day how I eat all of this sweet stuff and still look good. Well good is in the eye of the beholder, and thank you by the way, but it's all explained with the fact that I have 2 very hungry teenage boys. If we didn't raise our own beef I would be looking for a couple more jobs just to feed those two. These cookies would be great for a bake sale or to pack on a picnic, or just to show appreciation for a kind someone in your life.
I have a couple of great giveaways planned for the near future and I will be hosting a few exclusive giveaways for my facebook and twitter fans so click on over and show me some love! It will be appreciated!
