Woot... another tasty way to satisfy our sweet & salty cravings! We added the baking powder and soda in Step 1 and the cookies turned out de-lish.

Pattie, you did not mention the milk chocolate chips until #3 item in the directions. Can you tell me - do you spread them upon the warm dough and wait until after they melt? Do you then sprinkle the chopped peanuts onto the melted chocolate before it sets up? I can see how well they will be received with the Christmas Cookie bake off in preperation for Gift Trays. Thanks for posting for JAP. LOL :-)

Also, what amount of chocolate chips? Thanks!

I do not remember if I welcomed you to JAP!

Welcome! I hope you enjoy this site as much as I do!

Well I need to work on this recipe it was my Grandma's and when making this with her I had to watch. But on the chocolate chips I just use enough to make a thin covering so not more than a 6 oz. bag after baking spread them and after they melt spread it out then sprinkle the finely chopped nuts. I hope that helps and will update the recipe
