Salted Peanut Butter Rolo Cookies

Salted Peanut Butter Rolo Cookies

Is there any combination better than caramel, chocolate, and salt?  I say no, but perhaps you disagree–thats okay, more cookies for me! I found this recipe for Salted Peanut Butter Rolo Cookies at over at Mountain Mama Cooks, and made a few minor adjustments. These cookies are pretty tasty! I think that next time I will try to use a chocolate cookie base instead of peanut butter. That will allow to focus to be on the turtle aspect of them.
