Paradise Perks is a great new coffee house in Irvine (15475 Jeffrey Road, corner of Jeffrey and Irvine Center Drive). Like any respectable coffe shop, they have tasty pastries to go along with their coffee beverages, so of course I am required to try them!
I sampled the chocolate chunk cookie and the peanut butter cookie. Both were very large for the $1.50 price tag. Both were also delicious! Soft and chewy, the chocolate chunk cookie was filled with TONS of chocolate chips and chunks. The peanut butter cookie was very chewy and did not have that chalky taste that peanut butter cookies sometimes have. I wish I could get my peanut butter cookies to be so chewy! The full-size Reese's Peanut Butter Cup in the middle was an added bonus. I have only made cookies with fun-size, mini peanut butter cups, but the thinner regular size peanut butter cup melted into the cookie better. I will be sure to try this in my future peanut butter cookies!
I like my cookies with milk, but Paradise Perks (visit www.paradiseperks.com for more details) has a number of beverages available to go with your cookies. What do you like to drink with your cookies?
