Fudge-Filled Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
Very good, used a bit less sugar, 1/4 C. to 1/2 C. less is about right. Used butter, it is natural, and has a taste that cannot be matched! Same measurements as with the crisco. Good recipe to make with kids, too. **Also, when melting the chocolate, use 1/2 power or less, and stir the chips at 30 second intervals, even if they seem whole and unmelted, or just use a double boiler which is what I prefer; on a low / med heat, without boiling the water and don't let any moisture get into the chocolate or it can / will seize it (make it hard and crusty), and make the texture and taste less than satifactory. I do have to warn you all, these will not last long, you may want to hide some for yourself or for later in the freezer or in the back of the cupboard!

I'm just now finishing up this recipe. I used real butter instead of Crisco and the cookies taste great but I'm still waiting on the fudge filling to cool. At first I made the filling the way the recipe states...in the microwave, but it never melted correctly...it looked crumbly, not smooth. So then, I attempted to re-melt it on the stove top in a double boiler and it looked better but didn't seem to be the right consistency. It was very difficult to spread and the cookies didn't "stay together". For this reason I gave it four stars. Next time I'll take the advice of other posters and cut back on the sugar, the cookies are good but way to sweet for my liking. To Coralie; one stick of Crisco shortening equals two sticks of butter.

I just tried this recipe. I followed it to the T and they came out pretty good. They are very sweet so i might adjust the sugar next time. To make them look pretty make balls with your hands and then flatten them out

I pretty much followed the recipe, though I did decrease the sugar by half a cup. I don't like things so sweet so they were perfect for me this way. I didnt have crisco, so I just subbed margarine. The cookies turned great- very soft. After my first batch I tried making them a bit smaller and patting them down to flatten before putting them in the oven. When sandwiched they are really big! The problem with making them smaller/thinner is they become more delicate. You might want to experiment a bit with the size. The fudge turned out great. I made it on the stove in a double boiler (afraid of burning the chocolate in the microwave). I added just a pinch of salt to the chips and condensed milk, as this is usually called for when I have made fudge in other recipes. Overall, really good and would be fun to do with kids.

Peanut butter and chocolate make for a perfect combination.
