    Chocolate peanut butter heaven

    Vanessa Graves from The Colony, TX

    I was very pleased with how these cookies turned out. The taste is similar to chocolate peanut butter no-bakes. My husband ate them up. It is a simple and tasty recipe.

    Good and Chewy

    Randy Gray from Dallas, OR

    Great for a quick easy cookie treat. Grandkids gobbled them up on Mother's Day. Abit chewy but very good.

    Really good cookie!

    Tasya Rivera from Hamden, CT

    This cookie is sooooo good! It's a bit chewy, but I like that. I made a smaller cookie than was recommended, but it was still a good size. They were a big hit at my house, I'd definitely make them again.

    I was looking for a recipe that I can use as a diabetic. This fits the bill. As Reeses cups are one of my favorite candies, this is sure to be a favorite cookie!
