    Delicious 😋 I made half as instructed and added dark choc chunks to other half.  -  13 Mar 2016


    I make these often, and they always fly out of the jar! I sometimes put a peanut m&m on top whilst they are cooling for a little bit of chocolate. I always use chunky peanut butter, made from 100% peanuts and love them!  -  12 Mar 2017


    I made these today, did balls about the size of a 2 pence piece and flattened them with a fork. Only got 9 on the tray so had to do 2 batches and when they spread they were touching each other. First lot took 15 minutes, second lot I did for the same but didn't watch them and they burnt but are still edible. The first batch are absolutely delicious and I don't even like peanut butter. I got 18 out of it and am going to make some next time I'm at my market stall to sell. As a coeliac they are a brilliant gluten free treat, and for others a lovely lactose free treat too. They are moreish though! But also easy peasy. Mine are about 3 inches wide.  -  12 Jan 2017
