    These are the best cookies ever. I cause quite the stir when I take them to work.....
    I just made these awesome cookies. PB, chocolate, and toffee how can you go wrong.
    I added 1/4 cup choc chips and 1/4 cup chopped walnuts they were very good
    I add a package of milk chocolate chips to this recipe and they are hands down the best cookies I've ever eaten in my life!
    These are so yummy! I love them just the way the recipe is. But, for my most recent batch: I omitted the toffee bits, added crushed peanuts and slightly flattened then with a sugar coated fork as you would for traditional PB cookies. My peanut-butter-cookie-loving-boyfriend went crazy for them! Thank you Hershey's!! =)
    They were very good but a little to rich tasting to me but everyone tried to eat them up as fast as possible, considering there is no butter in them I was a little surprised.
    Great combination of flavors, everyone loved the cookies when I made them for a get together last week. Yesterday I made another batch but added mini chocolate chips and omitted the extra toffe bits on top and there were a hit also, give it a try.
    I baked loads of cookies; made these last night and now are my husbands #1 favorite! Terrific!
    I was not sure if I would like this combo, but took them to volunteer work project and they did not last long.
