These cookies were awesome!! I was skeptical at first with the maple syrup, but because I don't like the strong overpowing taste and texture of white sugar in the traditional recipe, and because I do like dark chocolate, I thought I'd try them and I'm glad I did! These are definitly are the 'grown-up' or 'adult' version of this kids favorite; much darker chocolate, not over-sweet and have a great peanut butter flavor and consistancy! Honestly, I can't figure out why some on this site had a flop here, I used real maple syrup, Jiff creamy peanut butter, and Wesson Canola oil. I love the peanut butter texture and think maybe a natural low oil peanut butter would give perhaps a little thicker texture. I didn't change the recipe a bit- boiled the first ingredients for three minutes stirring with a wire whisk constantly and was careful not to skald with too hot heat. I then added the rest of the ingredients and they came out out great! I didn't find them sticky or melty.. wonder if the other users just had bad luck..I used utensils to drop them onto wax paper, not my fingers and refridgerated them for 40 minutes before eating. Hope this helped! To me they tasted better than a Reces Peanut-butter cup!!! Will definitly make these again to take to the office or a dinner party!! If you like dark chocolate and peanut-butter I think you'll LOVE these! Read More

I have tried several different types of no bake cookies. Like others said these have a bitter taste and are not sweet enough. Read More

AMAZING! I absolutely love these cookies. I substituted vegan margarine for the oil and added some extra oats and some cocoanut. Yummy these are so great! I suspect that the people who had trouble with this recipe didn't boil the mixture long enough. Read More

These are my family's favorite new cookie. More like a bite of candy! I actually used applesauce and heated it up with honey peanut butter maple syrup and a touch of molasses. They are so chocolate-y delicious we can't get enough. Read More

i liked the fact that they aren't super sweet. they have almost a taste of bittersweet chocolate than a regular chocolate. i think they are good for a not so sweet snack when something sweet is wanted. Read More

The are so rich and delicious! I put them in the freezer since they do "melt" pretty quickly. They are very "chocolatey" too! Read More

Very Good cookies but messy when they warm up in little hands. My daughter who has a milk allergy loves that she can have a chocolate cookie like her sister! Read More
