Reviews for Peanut Butter Chocolate Treats
"I don't generally use pre-packaged refrigerated dough as it contains a lot of sodium and other artificial ingredients. However, I would make the cookies using the basic Toll House chocolate chip cookie recipe, subsituting one bag of Reeses Peanut Butter Candies for the chocolate chips. I think that 2 tbs of peanut butter would not be enough for this recipe; would suggest instead of covering the whole cookie, to put a small dollop in the center, maybe 1/2 to 1 tsp worth of peanut butter, smooth into a circle, then melt 1/2 bag of chocolate chips and dollop on top of the peanut butter to coat it. Still looks pretty without getting smeared or being messy!"
