I made these for a friend's birthday and she really enjoyed them. The peanut butter is so subtle that you really wouldn't realize it's there if you didn't know it. These are very creamy and rich! You could also substitute the sprinkles for any type of nut you prefer(chopped pecans, walnuts) or even toasted coconut for a change.
