Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies

Chocolate and peanut butter are meant to go together, and these chocolate dipped peanut butter cookies are a real winner. 

Ingredients

Peanut Butter Cookies

  • 1/2 cup butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup stick shortening
  • 1 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Melted Chocolate Dip

  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (or milk chocolate chips)
  • 1 1/2 TBS coconut oil

Instructions

Peanut Butter Cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter, shortening, and peanut butter
  • Add the white and brown sugar, cream until smooth, about 2 to 4 minutes
  • Beat in the eggs and vanilla
  • Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in another large bowl.
  • Carefully combine the flour mixture with the peanut butter mixture until all flour is mixed in.
  • Using a cookie scoop, make heaping tablespoon sized balls on your cookie sheet. Space cookies an inch or two apart.
  • With a fork flatten the cookies slightly with a crisscross pattern
  • Bake in oven for 8 to 14 minutes (depending on the size of the cookie), add 1 to 2 minute increments as needed. These cookies are cooked slightly crispy to allow dipping ease.
  • Remove from oven, cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, remove to cooling rack and cool for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Repeat baking until all cookies are finished

Melted Chocolate Dip

  • Line another baking sheet with parchment paper
  • In a normal sized bowl, add 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips and coconut oil
  • Melt for 30 seconds on high in the microwave, stir
  • Repeat in 30 second increments until chocolate is melted, stirring in between each time
  • After about 1 1/2 minutes, chocolate should be soft enough to stir for about 30 seconds until all the chocolate is melted
  • Slightly dip bowl to the side to pool up chocolate and dip 1 side of the peanut butter cookie in
  • Tip cookie so chocolate will flow to cover about 1/4 to 1/3 of your cookie
  • Wipe bottom of cookie on the bowl so excess chocolate will return to bowl and set on a clean parchment paper lined baking sheet
  • Repeat until the baking sheet is full, place in fridge until chocolate is set
  • Repeat with the next batch of cookies (melt more chocolate chips as needed)
