Chilling Question

? - prep says 15 minutes plus chilling, but no mention of chilling in recipe & after decades of making & chilling my peanut butter dough before baking, I know it makes it much easier to roll the balls.

Taste like the real thing!

I take care of my niece and two nephews while my sister is at work. Charlotte (niece) and I made these last week. We LOVED them. They taste like real pb&J's!
