Peanut Butter and M&M cookies {Foodie Friday}

The past 4 weeks I have given you some yummy Valentine day treat options. Hopefully you have had a chance to taste test some of them.
These cookies are some of my favorites and they can be tailored for any holiday or none at all. These cookies are cute, quick, and tasty. This would be a nice treat for your friends, co-workers, or anyone you want to show some 'love' for this Valentine's Day.
