I saw Chef*Lee's review and knew I had to make these because my husband is a peanut butter freak. He loved them! I added extra peanut butter, mixed in 1/2 c. peanut butter chips, and accidently mixed the chocolate chips in the batter. I just spread the remainder of the bag (4 oz.)on top and drizzled it with glaze. We enjoyed the extra chocolate & peanut butter and would make it the same way again. Thanks!

I have made these at Christmas for 35+ years. Terrific! They are a family favorite! I got the recipe from a McCalls cook book. I have found that if you make the peanut butter glaze as written, it never really hardens. If you heat the glaze and use a little less milk, it works perfectly.
