This is a different twist from the ordinary peanut butter cookie, rolled up with melted chocolate in the center....delicious! (note: the cookie dough has to chill for 30 mins)

This recipe was good, but I had a few changes with it. Mainly, I doubled the recipe, and I had to add about a c up of extra flour because it was far too sticky to roll out. Otherwise, this recipe was good. The cookies are cute and taste great.

Oh my--peanut butter and chocolate. I had fun making these. They cut very nicely after being in the fridge for 30 minutes. Next time I make these Im going to cut back the sugar, just a little. Thanks Kitten for a great recipe that will go on my cookie tray again.
