Tips
Use the leftover marshmallow creme to make easy s’mores—just spread on a graham cracker, top with a piece of chocolate candy bar (softened slightly in the microwave) and a second graham cracker.
If you love peanut butter cups, you'll love these cookies. My children received a candy for Valentine's Day that gave me the idea to make these chocolate sandwich cookies with peanut butter on the outside.
