“I use a small ice cream scoop to ensure uniform size and rolled them just a bit between my hands before dropping on the cookie sheet. I get 32 3-inch cookies. My cookies were larger (4-inches) and more fragile when I didn’t roll them. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture before I gave them to our neighborhood’s finest to thank them for all that they do…I have attached a picture of the chocolate shavings though. The cook time is 12 minutes per cookie sheet. Reeses Peanut Butter Pieces look like M&Ms with peanut butter insides (these are not peanut butter chips but you could probably use them).”
