Original recipe from Family Circle Magazine (Oct.1985) by a man named Jim Fobel. These went into almost every loot bag and lunch box when I was a kid!!! If you know this man, tell him I said "Thanks!"

This a really good cookie, I like the twist with the peanut butter in them. I did make them regular sized though since I needed that size. A delicious cookie, packed with good chewy chocolate. I didn't use pecans, I forgot them and used plain chocolate chunks..Yummy! This was made for Fall PAC 2008.
