You can tell by all the cookies recipes here at BoB that I love to bake batches and batches of them. I’ve made all kinds of cookies, but I think my favorites are the kinds that are just big celebrations of my favorite flavors. And peanut butter and chocolate rank pretty high on my list of favorites. But what I think makes these really shine is the added crunch from the peanuts and toffee.

I tend to give away the vast majority of the things that I bake. But sometimes there are things that we just can’t stand to see go. We kept a bunch of these irresistible cookies for ourselves and enjoyed snacking on them while Quinn took some time off from work. Luckily, this recipe makes a big batch so you can share some with your friends and still have plenty for yourself!
