This recipe is similar to cookies/candy I made in Home Ec. back in the 80s. I really like the combination of peanut butter and chocolate, but the texture of the cookies was fragile. The cookies never really became firm. I added a smidgen more peanut butter than the recipe called for - may that's why.

I tried making a version of these with soy butter, as I have a nephew who is alergic to wheat, peanuts and eggs - which makes it really hard to bake cookies for him! It worked perfectly- and they taste great. Have to work fast thought - they set up faster and firmer with the soy butter.

Very tasty and quick to make, but didn't firm up like I expected, maybe because I used natural peanut butter which has more oil in it. However, I remedied it by making them into little balls and rolling them in grated almonds! Very nice and then not so sweet. Parfait

Quick to make. Need to be kept in the freezer in our tropical climate but good for something a bit different.

Very quick and easy to put together, DH likes them, they're not my favourite. They didn't stay together after 30 minutes, I had to put them in the freezer to harden them up, then they were ok. I got 46 cookies and they will look nice on a holiday platter.

Delish! My brother and I love these. Our family usually stores cookies in the freezer, and we found that these were easiest to eat while they're still cold.
