A favorite with children. The peanut butter completely covers the candy.

I've seen this recipe published in assorted magazines using a mini Snickers in the center in place of a Rollo er "chocolate covered caramel candy". I decided to give this recipe a shot and add a photo/review as it was lacking both. The dough came together quite easily in my KA and I chilled the dough for a few hours. The dough was easy to work with though I found it best to grab some dough flatten it in my palm then wrap it around the Rollo pinching off any excess before rolling it into a smooth ball. These took 10 minutes for me and yielded 49 cookies for me. They were a hit with Mr. LTH's bandmates. THANKS for the recipe Pellie! Read More

Made these as part of a Christmas platter and they were a huge hit. This recipe doesn't need any real changes however I didn't think the cookie looked finished so I drizzled a little dark chocolate over the tops to get rid of the brown blob appearance. These were a big hit. Read More
