The chocolate says it all

Well, not my cookie.

A plate sized peanut butter, chocolate chunk cookie. Made as a gift.

Four ingredients + 30 seconds of mixing + chocolate writing = one happy birthday girl.

Giant Peanut Butter Cookie
based on the recipe from Kraft Canada

1 cup smooth peanut butter
1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup milk chocolate chunks (I cut mine up from a big Hershey bar)

Preheat oven to 325F, and line a round pizza pan with parchment paper - you do not need to cut this paper round or to size, and it is actually easier to remove the big cookie if you leave the paper hanging over the edge of the pan.

Mix everything together well in a big bowl.

Spread out the sticky dough on the pan, getting an even layer all the way to the edge.

Bake for at least 30 minutes, or until cookie is puffed and cooked all through - it will still be very soft in the center. Let cool, still on the pizza pan, for 10 minutes before using the extra parchment to help you pull the cookie off onto a baking rack. Do this slowly, the cookie might still be soft and might want to bend in the middle.

To write on the cookie as I did, melt some extra chocolate on low in the microwave, then transfer it to a small zip top sandwich bag. Snip a corner and write your message. It will look great, even if you do it in a mad dash rush, like I did.
