Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Hunks

These cookies came into creation in 2005. My roommate Olivia and I decided we wanted to see if we could substitute peanut butter for regular butter (or margarine) in cookies and the result was the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Hunks. These cookies stay gooey and soft and they taste amazing. It was fun to make them last night and remember creating these and to go through roommate memories. Thanks Olivia! 

1/2 c. + 1 TBS Peanut Butter
7 TBS margarine (or butter) (that's 1/2 c. minus 1 TBS)
1/2 c. white sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/4 tsp. vanilla
2 c. + 4 TBS flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 Hershey bars cut/broken into chunks (or 2 Hershey bars and 3 peanut butter cups)
Chocolate Syrup

1. Cream together the butters and the sugars.
2. Mix in the eggs and vanilla.
3. Add dry ingredients and chocolate chunks, mix well.
4. Squirt chocolate syrup over dough and mix in. I don't normally mix in the syrup all the way to try and get a marbled look. The dough will be slightly sticky.
5. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a greased baking sheet.
6. Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes (or until cooked through). The cookies will appear slightly underdone.
