Chunky Dunks

Chunky Dunks - Thick and chewy peanut butter and chocolate cookies perfect for milk dunking!

I’ll be the first to admit I have a peanut butter and chocolate problem. My husband will be the first to console me and tell me, “It’s okay, honey.”

We both seem to be a bit addicted partial to the flavor combo so I’ve made my fair share of goodies here in the Bitz & Giggles kitchen. Nothing over the top, though. Just a few recipes, like these cracker layer bars, soft batch cookies, brownie bowls, mason jar cake, ice cream bread, oat bites, cupcakes, fudge and more bars. I should probably stop there. No, you know what? We’re not stopping there, no we’re not. Ever. Stopping.

Today, I want to introduce you to what we like to call Chunky Dunks. Stick with me here. They’re a thick and chewy peanut butter and chocolate cookie that’s perfect for dunking. They’re taller vs. wider so they fit into a glass of milk just perfectly.

Notice, I said GLASS of milk. This cute little bottle you see here was for show only. After the photo shoot, I dumped that milk into a regular glass of milk and started dunking away. Because, that’s just what we food bloggers do. We make everything pretty for our pictures and then. . .we eat.

It works out best if you have lots of friends and neighbors close by if you’re a food blogger. I take my creations into the office, down the street and send some with my children to school. It’s just best that way. #foodbloggerproblems

This was actually the cookie I ate after the shoot. It was kind of the ugly duckling of the bunch. I’m showing you a picture of this cookie to keep things real. The chocolate has my fingerprints in it, the chips are all on top of one another, the edges browned a bit more than what I would have liked. . .these are just some of the things that happen to food bloggers. And, well, I want you to know about it. It’s only fair.

I will say, however, that it tasted JUST as good as all of the other ones. . .in case you were wondering.

  1. WOW! These look so perfect! I’ll definitely be trying these!

  2. I love these little guys!! They are great for dunking, but they are also small enough I can have a few!

  3. I loved that you showed a “real” cookie! I see so many people placing chocolate chips on cookies after baking and I bet the readers are disappointed when theirs don’t come out looking like that. And these cookies look perfect! I’m also “partial” to that combination. 😀

  4. I’m totally with you on the peanut butter and chocolate combination! It’s the best!

  5. I’m so in love with these chunky little cookies….they look awesome!!

  6. Sign me up for some of these! My glass of milk is waiting! I can’t wait to give them a try!

  7. haha that is exactly what we do as food bloggers, pretty it up then devour it! Best job ever especially when cookies are involved!
