CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER CHEWIES

1 pkg (12-oz) semi-sweet chocolate morsels
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 pkg (12-oz) peanut butter morsels

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line cookie sheets with parchment paper*; set aside.

Melt the chocolate morsels over hot, not boiling, water (or in the microwave), stirring until smooth. Remove from the heat; set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the butter and sugars; beat until creamy. Beat in the eggs and melted chocolate. Gradually add in the flour mixture and beat until blended. Stir in the peanut butter morsels.

Drop the cookie dough by round tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees 8 to 10 minutes. Let stand on cookie sheets 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

Yield: Approximately 3 dozen cookies.

*If you do not have parchment paper, bake on ungreased cookie sheets.
