There is no need to ask my hubby what my number one most annoying habit is. I can tell you. When I turn off the water after taking a shower, I (sometimes?) forget to adjust the knob that turns off the shower head. Translation: every single time Kobe turns on the faucets in the bathtub, he gets sprayed. Every. Single. Time.

But that’s not all. He grunts in surprise, say it with me, every single time. We’ve been married over 5 months. I’ve taken a lot of showers in that time. (That’s my story and I’m sticking with it.) I think I’ve turned off the shower head approximately 3 times. You would think he’s come to accept my shortcomings by now.

I mean, come on. What kind of a person doesn’t learn by now to expect to get sprayed with water if he’s not careful? Probably the kind of person who’s married to a girl who can’t remember to turn the thing off in the first place. (Here is where I should say mea culpa. But, I’m hesitant to admit liability. Perhaps I should consult someone with legal training.)

A small part of me feels guilty. The other part of me remembers that I baked him cookies today. As far as I’m concerned, cookies make up for all of life’s unfortunate events. Speaking of which, I probably want to drown my guilt with another cookie. Or two? Perhaps three. Maybe I’ll even save one for two for Kobe.

I hope ya’ll saved some dark chocolate peanut butter cups from when we made them the other day. I should have warned you this was coming. If you already ate them all or, gasp, didn’t make them yet, go ahead, I’ll wait. (I’m not that patient so I suggest you go get moving.)

See, I was reading Rivki’s blog Kosher Cooking for Ordinary People when I came across the inspiration for these cookies. I changed it a little. I used my own cookie dough recipe. I choose to use a different candy than she did. But, it was her idea in the first place. She deserves the credit. I’m fine giving it to her – as long as she’ll let me keep the cookies. Thanks Rivki.

These cookies are the perfect balance between chewy and crispy. The middle is a gooey delicious melted dark chocolate peanut butter cup. This is one of the most delicious, slightly over the top cookie, I’ve ever eaten.
