This recipe is one of my family's favorites, and I make these treats a lot, especially at Christmas. I have 3 children and 8 grandchildren, and every one of them loves those "peanut butter thingies", as the grandchildren call them! —Jodie McCoy, Tulsa, Oklahoma

I I have made these and at Valentine's, you can get the heart shaped Reese's treats and they look so cute on these!

MY REVIEW

I have made these for over 10 years but used the tubes of peanut butter cookie dough. Takes no time at all. A few years ago when they came out with the Simply Cookies I cut each one in half and rolled it into a ball for the perfect size. I am all for easy and this is it.
