Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies-No Bake

I have been eating these yummy and super easy to make cookies for years now. Of course, when Mom used to make them, she used sugar and butter. All of the yummy stuff! Since I am trying to watch my sugar intake and experiment with coconut oil, I have changed her recipe up just a bit. (Note about coconut oil: Please do not try to go "cheap" here. Buy organic unrefined oil. It tastes and cooks the best. You can usually pick up a jar for about $10-$15) I thought the cookies turned out great!
Only problem......eating too many in one setting. :D
