These are rich and quick to make. My mom used to make these for us when we were kids.

I felt like Lucille Ball on the chocolate production line, as I was trying to get the mixture on to the cookie sheets before it hardened up! These taste wonderful, the kids loved them and the chocolate/peanut flavour was delicious. Thankyou.

Kids and adults love these cookies. I served them to 25 kids and 3 teachers. One teacher said it reminded her of her childhood, and asked for the recipe. Thanks for posting this!
