Chocolate peanut butter heaven

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

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