How to make peanut butter cookie dough dip

My son asked if he could turn this cookie dough recipe into a peanut butter cookie dough dip. Here’s how:

  • Use 1/4 cup butter softened and 1/2 cup peanut butter. Add both when you’d add just the butter before.
  • Use 1/2 cup peanut butter chips and 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips. Add both when you’d add just the chocolate chips before.

Besides a peanut butter dip, you could also make this into an almond butter, sunflower butter, or cashew butter dip.
