I make this recipe every year. Huge hit all around. A few tips, be sure to refrigerate the dough, I prefer overnight. And blend the margarine/butter with the peanut butter before adding the sugar. Don\'t know why, but makes a smoother dough. Also, I suggest cookie a 300 for about 16 minutes, makes a moister cookie

I made these as per the recipe but I ALSO made ones with Rolos inside (normal size)... I highly suggest them. If you make them with Rolos, use as little dough as possible to cover the outside of the rolo... it melts together with the cookie to make a wonderfully gooey chocolate/caramel layer... amazing. I also stuck little pretzels on top of each cookie/rolo ball to add some crunch. Also highly suggested.
