    Fudge-Filled Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

    I finally gave in. my wife kept looking at sweet treats in the store and threatened to buy some if I didn’t get busy and bake pretty soon. With the Holidays coming up I really tried to avoid it; but I gave in. I thought if you’re going to do it, you may as well do it right-after all what’s a couple thousand calories. Well it is nothing if you are 110 pounds and 5”7 like she is. Now the truth is, I’m afraid, it is not the same for me. I won’t tell you what I weigh; just that it is too much. So enough crying and here it is; another sinfully delicious sweet treat recipe. I guarantee you will love this Fudge-Filled Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe-rich chocolate sandwiched in-between 2 peanut butter cookies. Bake and Enjoy
