"I gave this recipe and a bag of mini-M&Ms to two 12 year olds. They made the cookies themselves only substituting the m&ms for the chocolate chips. Wonderful! We did take them out of the oven after 8 minutes. The boys were proud of themselves and loved the cookies!"

"Well, couldn't believe there was actually a recipe to be found, with no flour, butter or baking soda, but this one truly is. They really do only take 5 minutes to prepare and DO only yield 2 Doz. At first taste, it's kinda weird though, cause your truly eating baked sugar and peanut butter, so it's kinda gritty, but very tasty indeed. Will be making agin some time!"

"This really is a great recipe to make with a small child. My 2 year old helped me and the simplicity of it held his attention. They are really good for the minimal work and ingredients that go into them. I took mine out before the recommended cook time was over. I don't know if it is just my oven or if the time was listed too long but they were done at about 13 minutes."

"I used 1 cup of sugar and regular milk chocolate chips. They turned out very yummy. Make sure you let them cool a bit before trying to eat them or else they will just fall apart. Also, be sure to have some milk!"
