We really like chocolate and peanut butter, so I wanted to try this recipe. It was quick and easy to put together because of the pre-made cookie dough. This would also be a fun recipe to change around. I can see mixing it up very easily using chocolate frosting with the peanut butter and drizzling with melted white chocolate. You could also replace the M&M candies with any number of different toppings. Thanks for posting!
