My brother flipped when he saw me making this dessert. His absolute favorite dessert to have when at my house is Monster Cookies. He’s been known to get out my mixer and make them himself when I don’t have them on hand.
These peanut butter balls were so close in appearance to that cookie dough that he grew quite excited on seeing it. One bite later, he immediately accepted them instead of monster cookies. They are that good.
