I love peanut butter and chocolate. This is a very simple cookie recipe. I have changed this recipe to my liking. The original Was clipped from a magazine. I changed a lot of measurements in this recipe. I also added chopped salted peanuts to the filling and added more of a chocolate topping. Thes cookies are fabulous. They are not dry like a lot of cookies of this type. They are great to make for a party, or for a Christmas cookie platter. Enjoy everyone!
