I made these cookies for a bake sale. Unfortunately the chocolate seized on me when I was melting. I had some vanilla melts so I used them as a coating instead. They were good but I likely won't make them again. Read More

If I make this and the peanut butter haystacks again I will definitely wear gloves! And I would buy a dipping fork. Read More
