Last week at Target, I came across a jar of white chocolate peanut butter. Wow! This stuff is sooo good no wonder why it is called White Chocolate Wonderful! I had no reason to buy it other than I knew I could make something great with it.
Peanut Butter & Co. does have other flavors. As I come across them, I will be picking them up. Especially that Mighty Maple! I’m sure they all would make a great frosting or as fudge.
Coincidentally, September 23th was National White Chocolate Day. The blog Averie Cooks put together a compilation of recipes that have a white chocolate ingredient in them. One of the recipes on the list is Peanut Butter Oatmeal White Chocolate Cookies. I thought this would be a great way to use that white chocolate peanut butter and I was right. And as always, her recipes are always so easy to put together. I love it when I can squeeze baking in mid-week. It’s definitely not easy so when I come across a recipe that doesn’t involve a lot of work and time, I get excited. And as always, I have my special helper nearby to make sure everything is going ok.
I did make a couple of simple adjustments to the original recipe. One is, of course, using the white chocolate peanut butter. Also, I used a combination of white chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips. You can find the original recipe here.
These cookies are delicious. The flavor of white chocolate isn’t overpowering, it’s just enough. If you are looking for a quick cookie recipe to make, give this one a try!
