Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls are a quick and easy cookie with loads of peanut butter flavor. Make them to celebrate National Peanut...
It is with great pleasure that I announce National Peanut Day today!
Wait – don’t tell me you didn’t know it was National Peanut Day. Who are you? But if you forgot (it’s okay; one time I forgot National Butterscotch Pudding Day and the world didn’t explode, so it’s all good), there is still plenty of time to make up for it – and plenty of peanutty goodness in today’s recipe to satisfy this national holiday!
I recently got the terrible news that elephants don’t actually like peanuts. Um, I feel like my whole life has been a lie. How can elephants not like peanuts?! How come circusfolk told me a flat-out lie about an elephant’s snack preference? It’s not like I would have judged the elephant for liking lettuce or popcorn or whatever instead of peanuts. I didn’t have this notion in my head thinking, that giant animal over there must like peanuts or else I will disown it in my mind. How come I trusted circusfolk? Most of them are missing teeth and have pet monkeys. The world has so many unanswered questions.
So if you’re an elephant or someone who can’t eat peanuts, you probably won’t like this recipe. But for everyone else, this is one of the easiest cookie dough recipes ever, and is one that is sure to satisfy that sweet & salty craving we all get.
The best part? This recipe makes a small batch which definitely helps curb the IWANTALLTHECOOKIES feelings we sometimes get. Or is that just me? Anyway, it makes approximately 15 miniature balls of rich and chewy peanut butter cookie dough and they’re so cute. Teeny, poppable and seriously addictive, you’ll probably end up polishing off all 15, but because they’re miniature, calories don’t count. It’s science, and I’m not circusfolk so I wouldn’t lie to you!
