Ugh, I made the cookies themselves oversized to get all the goodies inside.

They are moist, chewy and bursting with chocolate-y peanut buttery goodness!

The peanut butter frosting is super fluffy and not overly sweet. A perfect combo.

Chocolate and peanut butter just happen to be one of my favorite flavor combinations of all time. AND, peanut butter cups are my favorite chocolate treat.

The recipe for the cookies is adapted from Love to be in the Kitchen and the frosting is adapted from my friend Rebecca at Sugar & Soul!

The cookies by themselves are to die for, but add in that frosting and it just takes them to the next level!
