What is The Chocolate Part in This Cookie

Instead of a classic chocolate bar I reached for a homemade chocolate ganache. It really elevated the flavor of these peanut butter cookies I think.

You can also store them in an airtight bag. They will last for around 5 days before they get pretty dry.

Can You Freeze Peanut Butter S’mores Cookies

You can freeze these cookies if you want to save some back. I don’t see why they wouldn’t work. I haven’t tried it cause they get gobbled up so fast once I make them. 

 

Just store in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to three months. Thaw cookies on counter when you want one.
