peanut-buttery-chocolatey-cinnamon-ey goodness

My daughter has been learning all about the letter "C" this week in school. The class made pretend cookies and she's been singing "C is for cookie..." all week. Long story short, I have cookie on the brain. I wanted to try something new, something tasty and so perfectly "cookie" they just could not be resisted. Bearing those things in mind, I created the following "peanut-buttery-chocolatey-cinnamon goodness":

1C unsalted butter
3/4C sugar
3/4C brown sugar
2 eggs
1C crunchy peanut butter
1t vanilla
1 3/4C flour
1t baking soda
1t salt
2t true cinnamon
1/2C milk chocolate chips
1/2C semi-sweet chocolate chips

1C dark chocolate (melted)
1/4C cinnamon sugar mixture

Cream: butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs (one at a time) until incorporated. Add peanut butter and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine: flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Add chocolate chips and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes (chewy and soft... not crisp). Cool completely and arrange in a single layer over parchment paper. Melt dark chocolate and drizzle over the batch then sprinkle cinnamon/sugar mixture over the chocolate.
