Easy Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate PB Cookies

Hey guys! It’s Chelsea from Chelsea’s Messy Apron. How is the holiday season going so far? Done with all your Christmas shopping or have you even started? I’m about halfway done 🙂

Today I’ve got one of the simplest cookies for you to make this holiday season! Since this time of the year tends to be the busiest, why not use such a simple recipe and save some time?! These cookies are only FIVE ingredients so there is no excuse to not make these! They hardly take any time at all and can all be done in one bowl – what a perfect holiday cookie recipe!

These cookies are peanut butter based with chocolate chips and very sweet! I love sweet and salty so I added a little bit of sea salt to the tops of the cookies, but that is completely optional.

Happy Holiday Baking!!
