good recipe, they came out great except after i put the chocolate chips and peanuts on top, the chocolate melted and it was a hassle cutting them as the chocolate smeared. gotta find a better solutions to the chips. not a travel cookie as i'm sure they are going to be a mess when i arrive. no doubt a tasty cookie.
