Once again the Hershey book came in handy when visiting Ohio.  Also once again I turned to a chocolate peanut butter combo which I made a few changes to make even better.  First I used a combination of peanut butter and speculoos simply because it is that much better.  I also did not have heath bits and decided to use a combination of semi sweet and butterscotch chips.  These were great; however it was not until the last batch did I flatten the cookies a bit before baking which I enjoyed the most.  I also made sure to chill the dough before turning into cookies which I have mentioned in the past, but I cannot stress enough how amazing they taste as a result.  Note this is only intended for those with a sweet tooth (like me).
