A beautifully blended cookie made with half peanut butter cookie dough, half chocolate dough, full of chocolate chips and swirled together. A match made in heaven.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Swirl Cookies
I call these cookies my “We Are the 15 Percent” Cookies. Have you heard about that site? After Cheerios aired a commercial with a biracial couple, some (small minded, racist, intolerant) people were outraged and Cheerios had to turn off the comments on the ad because of all the backlash online. People disappoint me.
We Are the 15 Percent was created to showcase some of the couples that make up the statistic of 14.6% of new marriages in America are interracial (according to the 2008 census, so it’s probably even higher now).
I am the product of an interracial marriage. I am in an interracial marriage (see our submitted pic here). So maybe I’m biased, but I think race/color/flavor mixing is beautiful. Especially when it involves chocolate and peanut butter.
I give you delicious, biracial cookies.
I didn’t even hear about the Cheerios commercial, that is crazy! You look beautiful in your wedding photo btw 🙂
These cookies look delicious. Can’t go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter in my book! And the Ghirardelli chocolate chips are an added bonus, mmmm!

“People disappoint me.” —-I agree. I’ll never understand why some people will continue to hate on families and people that really have no direct impact on their lives whatsoever. It’s sad, and makes zero sense.
On a happier note, these cookies look amazing.
On another happier note, I’m another metro Detroit-based food blogger, just stopping by to say hello 🙂 Check me out here:

That’s me 🙂 Stalk away – I’ll stalk you right back. Creepy…
What a fantastic photo!! And I LOVE your biracial cookies! Both for the social message and for the presumable deliciousness (as they look fantastic!).

These cookies are quite symbolic! They sound delish, and what a great comparison 😉
I love these cookies. Chocolate & peanut butter is one the best combos ever. Give me some 15%! 🙂

These cookies look delicious! And I thought that commercial was great when I saw it. They should use interracial couples in more advertising.
