Ok, so here she is, my first born, my main helper in the kitchen and my sister, Donna's, goddaughter. She is 5 1/2 years old, getting ready to start kindergarten in September and whenever cookies are being made she is right there on her stool , ready to help and lick the spoon or eat the dough. She makes me laugh and cry, but she loves peanut butter so these are for her. I got this recipe from my sister, Donna, over at My Tasty Treasures . She got the recipe from the back of the Heath Bits bag. I do love back of the bag recipes. They are really good, and full of peanut butter and chocolate toffe, it doesn't get much better than that. These are a keeper.
