"Chocolate and peanut butter are one of the all time great combinations so there is really no way these cookies could go wrong. I did only use 1 can of the frosting though and it was plenty. This is a great one to make with your kids."

"@mamu8535....just place a bit of sugar in a shallow dish. The sugar is only used for dipping the fork in and smashing the cookies (like a regular peanut cookie recipe). It does not go in the recipe itself. Start with just a bit (maybe 2 TBLS.) and add more as needed. Hope this helps. Also, I want to add that this cookie is good and so simple to make."

"This recipe calls for sugar but doesn't say how much. Please let me know how much sugar to use. Thank you ."

"I love the recipe BUT the label for diabetic friendly should be removed. Any recipe calling for 2 cans of ready made frosting that adds flour and sugar to the mix cannot be considered diabetic. But it is a very good recipe and definitely a keeper!"

"I cannot say enough good things about these wonderful cookies. I turn to these cookies every time I get a chocolate craving and they alwasy satisfy. I carry a copy of the recipe whenever I take them anywhere because somebody alwas asks for it. I use 1 can of frosting in the dough and not quite 1 can to frost them. Thanks for a great recipe."

"I made these cookies but I baked them at 350 degrees for 8 minutes on my insulated cookie sheets. They turned out perfect and soft. I took them to work and I was told this was a "keeper" recipe."
