The flavor of this recipe was excellent! I halved the recipe and there's not enough chocolate to coat all the cookies. I also had to add some milk to the chocolate coating because it was way too thick. I ended up coating half of the cookies.
Delicious, but the recipe needs some work. First of all, I'm fairly sure that the original Tagalongs have a milk chocolate coating. Secondly, there's too much peanut butter filling and not enough chocolate in this recipe. I ended up making three batches of chocolate: I overcooked the first and it turned into something like mousse; the second was better but still not really dipping material; I was able to spread on the cookies with a knife like butter. Then, when I ran out of that, I tried again using a little milk to make it thinner. At that point it was more like dipping chocolate but still wouldn't have been enough to go around. I'm waiting to see if they set completely. I was using chocolate chips, admittedly not the best material for dipping chocolate. If I do this again, I'm going to try it with milk chocolate.
yummy! very very good! pulled a dumb one and tried to melt the choco chips n butter in microwave (even though i knew better) and pretty much puttied the chocolate onto the top of the cookies (but seemed somewhat therapudic!). taste wonderful! may double the peanut butter next time as i seem to never get enuf of it! what sinfully rich chocolate drops of goodness these are! thanks Invictus!! will deffinatley double boil chips next time! may even expand my waist and add a drizzle of caramel over the top! :)
The taste of these was pretty good, but they just didn't really work out for me. I made a half recipe and the chocolate was so thick I only really had enough to coat 5 cookies. The rest just got a dollop on top. Also, I used natural peanut butter and it was way too thick, even after heating, to really spread over the top. Thank you for giving me a new cookie to try! Made for PRMR tag.
The kids and I made these this morning and are taking them to a birthday part this afternoon. Of course we had to taste first. It has been along time since I had tagalongs, so can't be sure how close they taste. Doesn't matter though because they sure are good. Also, not as hard to make as I thought. Thanks Heidi.
Great and delicious cookies. Thought they werwe like the girl scout cookies. They were very very good. Made for 1-2-3-4 hit wonders.
mmmmm, yummy cookies... and much better than the boxed ones! my chocolate was a little thick--I think I'll try making it a little thinner next time. somehow. and my cookies didn't stay crisp after they were chocolated. I have yet to freeze them to see how that works--it's my favorite way to eat the boxed version. and I think making the dip after pulling the cookies out of the oven is important if you like a lot of pb, 'cause otherwise it'll run over the edges of the cookie pretty quickly, and I had plenty of pb mixture left over, too.
I'm so glad I tagged this recipe. I can have homemade Girl Scout cookies all year round. These are delicious! I did have a lot of filling leftover, so I will probably cut that down by half next time. I also had to use a little bit more chocolate. Thanks! :D
These are one of my favorite girl scout cookies! Next time I will use less dough for the cookie because I felt there was too much and it was too thick, but that is personal preference. I added a little bit of butter and some corn syrup to the chocolate while it was melting and it gave the cookies a shiny coating and they set up very well. Yummy!
Whoa, very cool to see this! I will have to try it sometime. I loooove Tagalongs, and I remember when I was a Girl Scout, they first were called "Peanut Butter Patties" then "Hoe Downs" and finally, "Tagalongs".
