Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

We are revisiting my love obsession with the chocolate peanut butter combination with these cookies.  I made these cookies as using our Lindt chocolate from our chocolate party last week and actually found the recipe in Lindt Chocolate Passion Cookbook.  I wanted to cut out some of the calories and sugar so I used NEW Domino® Light Sugar & Stevia Blend in place of regular sugar, no one knew the difference.  They still tasted fantastic!

Substituting sugar with the Domino Light surprised me.  Normally when I bake with a sugar substitute I can totally tell, but not this time.  I am guessing because it is an actual blend of real sugar and the extract of the stevia plant.  It is simple to substitute, all you have to do is half whatever your recipe calls for in sugar.  For instance, if your recipe calls for 1/2 cup sugar add 1/4 cup Domino Light instead.
