Baking ideas for peanut butter chips?

Standard

I am blessed because I have almost always had friends and colleagues who keep me supplied with some of the hard- (or impossible) to-get baking supplies (that is, impossible to get in Sweden – they bring back some of the more toxic or unusual American products) that sort of define my unique baking repertoire.

One good friend recently returned from the States and very kindly brought me peanut butter chips – which are wonderful, but what I had actually wanted was miniature peanut butter cups. I like baking massive chocolate chip cookies with a mini peanut butter cup baked inside. It’s overkill to some, heaven to others. Alas, I won’t be making the stuffed cookies but am dreaming and plotting about creative ways to employ the peanut butter chips. (I still have some peanut butter chips from the last time the same friend’s husband went to the States and was like a dedicated baked-good-supply mule for me!)

Normally I make chocolate cookies with peanut butter chips, but I would like to branch out and need to think of some good ideas.

What should I do?

Peanut butter chip brownies?

Chocolate peanut butter filled oat bars?

Peanut butter cookies with peanut butter chips?

Or should I be trying to think up something entirely new?
