Delicious!

I saw these chips at the grocery and looked at the recipe and decided to give it a shot. I used chopped salted peanuts for the nuts and sprinkled just a bit of sea salt on top before I baked them. I love that sweet and salty combination. I bake many different types of cookies that are always a hit, but I have to say that I think I have had my best feedback yet with these cookies! Thanks!

yum yum!

Oh my Gosh!! These cookies are delicious. I'm not a huge fan of peanut butter but the peanut butter flavor in these cookies is not too much. I know you're not supposed to eat raw cookie batter but even that was good. I will definitly make these again.

My grandson is a United States Marine. These great cookies ship so well and all of his friends loved them so much they all show up every time he gets a box in the mail.

WOW

Just loved them. Made them many times over using different morsels each time. Love the peanut butter taste. No matter what you put in these cookies, they're "great". Who would have thought that a Nestle Toll House cookie could be topped.

My husband is a United States Marine and while he was in training I baked these wonderful cookies for him and his roommates. They loved them so much they invited their neighbors to come eat some. They were a hit. My daughter loved them too. I recommend this recipe both for adults and children.
