    This is a great cookie! Quick to make and allows for fun customization! Used a bag of nestle PB and milk chocolate chips. Fabulous! As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I love recipes that use ingredients I know I have on hand and can easily be assembled.

    These are to die for. I use sliced almonds and drizzle with melted chocolate after they cool. Can't just eat one.

    These are VERY good cookies. If there are M&M lovers like me out there they will surely love these cookies. They have a crunchy shell and are chewy in the middle. Yummy! Just the way a cookie should be!
