Whew, that was quite the title to write! Please excuse this interruption from giveaway posts for a special little post. This year I participated in The Great Blogger Cookie Swap which is an annual event organized by Love & Olive Oil and The Little Kitchen.  The swap consists of food bloggers from across the US with proceeds going to Cookies for Kids Cancer. So I made a little donation to the charity and was matched up with 3 other bloggers to send some cookie love. Who doesn’t love getting things in the mail?!

Before I talk about my cookies, I’m going to share some blog love from the bloggers that sent me cookies.

Go check out their blogs today for a glimpse at the delicious cookies that they made and sent over. All were quite delicious!

So without further adieu, how about some cookies! I wanted to do a little twist on traditional chocolate/peanut butter cookies so I enlisted the help of a jar of White Chocolate Wonderful Peanut Butter from my pantry. If you haven’t tried their line of PB’s yet, I suggest picking up a jar or two. The original thought was to drizzle the cookies with chocolate but that wasn’t going so well so I just went with a simple chocolate dunk. Sort of a play on black and white cookies.  Finished off with some holiday sprinkles, these cookies are sure to delight!
