Chocolate Shadows

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Marlene.

These are really good, especially if you like the whole peanut butter /chocolate combination. I could actually go for a bit MORE chocolate ;)Thinking about maybe, the next time I make them , dipping half the cookie in melted chocolate ;) *cooking time is per pan*

Thanks for posting this recipe. I'd been making these for years, then lost the recipe book that had the recipe. Outstanding chocolate & peanut butter flavor and simple to make. I knew (formerly Recipezaar) would have it!!
