Peanut Butter & Chocolate Cookie Cake

Chocolate PB Cookie Cake

You guys. Our big move to Europe is now just a couple months away. I don’t even know where time has went, where did my year to prepare go? I have less then 30 days before the movers come to pack everything up and ship it away. Then we’ll be left with an empty house for awhile. Lots of emptiness, and children, and dinners without table. Ehh I’m already losing my sanity thinking about it. And I have so much to do…like research the major European bakeries, and best pretzels joints. I mean really how else would we choose location? Three years is a long time to not have a amazeballs bakery around right? Ha, priorities at their finest.

My to do list really isawful scary. Like is it even human to complete that many things? So I do what anybody would naturally do…start checking them off one by one. Just kidding, I baked. Because that’s what I naturally do. Things get crazy…I bake. Sorry I would totally fold that laundry, but the cakes about to come out of the oven, so, you know. #srynotsry

What better to bake when your avoiding chaos and responsibilities then something filled with chocolate and peanut butter. Then to make it even better lets start with a cookie but bake it like a cake, because really why should we have to decide? Yep, have you cake and eat it too with this one. Seriously guys…you’re gonna love it!
