Wow!! These are wonderful! I can't believe how easy they are. I used creamy peanut butter, and dipped them in semi-sweet and milk chocolate. That way everybody got their favorite.I put them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper to set. So easy and so good. Thanks for a great recipe. It will get a lot of use! :-)

Just made a batch of these for dessert. YUM! These are great! They taste just like the inside of a Reese's Peanut Butter cup. I used light peanut butter and they still tasted rich and delicious.

I made these today, and they are absolutely WONDERFUL!! I had some dipping chocolate in my cupboard JUST WAITING to be used, and I definitely picked the right recipe to use it on!! These will be a great addition to next year's Christmas cookie tray. THANK YOU!! ~Manda

These were very good! I'm really glad that I tried them! I had to use crunchy peanut butter as that is all that I had on hand. I used milk chocolate for the dipping and sprinkled some with some icing sugar for an added effect. Very tasty!! Thanks for posting! - Christina

My husband says if he fails his next USMC weight-in, he's coming after you. He ate almost all of these. Thanks for sharing.

I'm trying to gear up my cookie arsenal for the holiday season, and these were the perfect last-minute addition to my cookie tray. I made a ganache (1/4 c. cream + 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate) to dip these into. In a word, fabulous. Thanks.

These are VERY good! I made a x4 batch for cribbage night and got rave reviews from all! I used my KitchenAid stand mixer, with the paddle attachment (and the pouring shield, to keep the powdered sugar from flying everywhere), starting it on low to get things mixing. When it was thoroughly mixed and basically in a ball, I used a small (1-1/2 tsp.?) cookie scoop to portion the dough out. I re-rolled each one into an actual ball-shape before dunking it in the chocolate. I didn't measure the chocolate I used (Ambrosia chocolate chips from Costco)...I just dumped some into a bowl that served as the top of a double-boiler, along with about a tablespoon of shortening (to give it a shiny coat). They were taking too long for the chocolate to set up before I had to leave, so I popped them into the freezer for ten minutes...perfect! Thank you, Ali, for an EXCELLENT recipe! This is definitely a re-do...and my son is making some this weekend for a friend's party! :) He took a few of the ones we had made (he helped) to these friends and they loved them, also. Thanks again! :)
