Peanut Whirls Recipe

Peanut whirls

Until you try these cookies, you’ll never know what a wonderful combination peanut-butter and chocolate can make!
They’re so rich…so deliciously different! Robin Hood’s High Protein Richness, which comes from a combination of specially selected high protein wheats, makes everything you bake taste better. Everything is lighter, more tender, stays fresh longer. Take advantage of this high protein richness to give your family better baking and better nutrition, too!
