      These are pretty good. I would suggest using less sugar because they are very sweet! I used unsalted peanuts, so I just added a little salt to the cookie batter. For the filling I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and next time I will either use all milk chocolate or half semi and half milk.

      These are really pretty and are so much better than the ones with the kiss. The chocolate center is to die for and it's hard to beat the peanut butter/ chocolate combo. I used lightly salted nuts and that did not seem to be a problem. I am saving this recipe for next years cookie trays.
