    I made these with semi-sweet chips and PB chips. They turned out really yummy. Two recommendations: 1) Sit them on the counter for a few minutes before you serve them as they can be a little hard straight out of the fridge. 2) Don't make them too large as they can get hard to bite through.

    A quick and easy snack to make if you are looking for something sweet but don't have much time.
