    Some people like really sweet cookies, some do not. The sugar in these cookies was just fine for me but it might be a little less sweet for people who like sweeter cookies. So if you are one of those, increase the amount of sugar in the recipe. I would suggest using 1/2 cup granulated sugar in stead of what is mentioned.

    A point about peanut butter, I used creamy peanut butter but I think chunky will also work well. Also, I used regular M&Ms but to enhance the peanut flavor, you can very well use peanut butter M&Ms.
