Amen sister. I always feel like a nut!

i can vouch for these. i also typically don't like nuts in cookies, brownies, etc., but they somehow work in this recipe. they complement instead of overpower. thumbs up!

Those look delicious! Love your blog; I'll be back!

Yum! What are your favorite dark chocolate chunks to use? I think I need to run out and get some so I can make these this weekend. THanks! :)

Hilarious, Tamara! I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Thank you Chronicles and A Place!

Leticia, I used Whole Foods' 365 brand Dark Chocolate Mini Chunks (70%)for this batch and I thought they were quite tasty.

so what does it say about me that i definitely did not think first of eating a nut, and then i was like wow margy thinks she is always a nut like me, but then i finally figured it out. i think that is what an easier but still hard week of puppydom has done to me. l.

Sounds like hyper lily-gilding to suggest adding to the combination of chocolate any peanut butter, but I have found bananas make a great addition to this combo. Slice the bananas into circles and cut into half moons. Once you've flattened the peanut dough balls on your cookie sheet, stick the bananas in half-cut side down. They stick up like suns on the horizon. Believe me, I was horrified at the thought of ruining my favorite cookies with bananas, but peanut butter and baked, carmelized bananas work. By the way, this idea didn't come from kindergarteners going crazy in the kitchen. I learned it from a San Francisco guormet cookie maker, Tom of Tom's cookies. He actually served this peanut butter and banana cookie at President Clinton's inauguration and named the cookie after him.

Laura, I guess that is what children, dogs and blogs can do to a person :)

Mimi, how interesting! Thank you for sharing this. I am definitely going to give it a try.
