When I give these as gifts, they’re gone in a flash! I make them ahead when it’s convenient because they freeze well. You can use M&M's in different colors for holidays year-round. —Julie Wischmeier, Brownstown, IN

"Very simple to make and extremely tasty. I took these peanut butter s'mores to a church dinner and was asked by two people to make them again for next Sundays lunch. Thanks for an easy dessert recipe."

"I couldn't find just peanut butter cookie dough so I used Nestle Toll House Ultimate chocolate Peanut Butter Deluxe w/peanut butter cups, chips & chocolate chunks and it was delicious!!! This recipe is a keeper and will make often! Thank you for sharing this wonderful and simple recipe!!!"

"The peanut butter cookie base wasn't that flavorful, and then it was just some marshmallows and chocolate chips thrown on top. They're pretty cookies, but didn't find the taste to be anything out of the ordinary."

"I've been making this for years and it is always a hit. The first time I made these I stuck it back in the oven to cook for the additional time to puff the mallows and it made them hard and chewy. Now I turn the oven off and put it back in for additional time. The oven is hot enough to puff the marshmallows. Also I don't drizzle the extra chocolate on them. I think it is chocolately enough."

"I used chocolate chip cookie dough because my store was out of peanut butter dough, they were still good though! Tasted great!"

"LOVE THIS! The only thing I did differently was to just place the chocolate chips and M&M's on top of the hot marshmallows instead of melting the chocolate chips with butter. Then I took a spatula and spread around the chips as they melted. This is only because I can never melt the chips's my own dumb fault, so I adjust according to my ability...or lack thereof...ha,ha...still tastes AMAZING!"

"I was skeptical about how baked marshmallows would taste once they were refrigerated, but they were soft and delicious. Looks great and is easy to make."
