Very yummy and easy to make. I didn't have any oats so I used 1/2 cup of graham cracker crumbs instead and they turned out great. Taste just like a peanut butter cookie, and the chocolate chips make them extra special!
This wii certainly satisfy a Pb & chocolate craving! I'm teaching my DS's GF to cook & she did a great job on these. [this is a girl that didn't know what blend or fold meant] She wanted PB & chocolate & I found this. Thanks for posting.
I got this recipe from Taste of Home a long time ago and have brought these to many summer picnics. Yum!
