So when your 6 year old nephew calls and says, “Auntie, can I come over and bake with you today,” you immediately and without any hesitation say, “YES!” Then when your two nieces find out their little brother is headed to Auntie’s house for bake day and promptly say they wanna go too, you just start to feel like a kick-arse, rock star aunt!
With very short notice I googled chocolate chip peanut butter cookies and this recipe popped up. I had a smidgen of an idea that they might like these seeing that all three of them would sell each other to the first buyer just to get a scoop of peanut butter, chocolate ice cream. Very easy and absolutely delicious, definitely a crowd pleaser.
One note… they cooked much faster than 12-14 minutes. I would suggest check them at 10 minutes.

Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the corn syrup, water, and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Fold in chocolate chunks. Drop by 1/4 cupfuls 3 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are golden.
