Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Remember my sailor friend from the Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies  post? Well, he shipped out yesterday. I have always been an emotional eater, but this was full-on using my hand as a spoon to get Nutella out of the jar and into my mouth. I decided that was probably not going to help my weight loss goals for the year, so I quickly transfered my energy into baking cookies which I promised myself I’d give away and not eat. I even threw in my box of Reese’s Pieces, knewing they would only tempt me if left in the fridge.

Next time I try making these, I’m going to put Reese’s Pieces in the dough itself, instead of just on top of the cookies.
