The last time I made these cookies was at Christmas time before I went to Florida. But my inspiration came from the thumbprint cookies and the turtle cookies and the fact I love peanut butter and chocolate together.

They are a little time consuming but well worth the labor.

You will be so amazed at all the flavors.

I also make these and add chopped pretzels to the caramel. They are amazing also.

Enjoy
