Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies
Do you remember these Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies? The ones I raved and raved about that were soooo good, the best peanut butter cookie in the history of the universe, yada-yada-yada? Well, it turns out this it true, but then I decided to make them even better.
I dipped them in bittersweet chocolate.
I dipped them in bittersweet chocolate and they became the most beautiful cookie to ever grace these lips.
I dipped them in bittersweet chocolate and they tasted so good I almost cried.
I dipped them in bittersweet chocolate and fell madly in love for the third time in my life...first Mace, then Anna, then Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookie.
Don't even pretend that you're not going to eat every last one of these when you make them. I was going to give them away for Christmas treats, but I am not sure they'll make it that long. Sorry guys! Merry Christmas anyway?
J/K. I'll at least leave you with the recipe so you can make 'em yourselves. I wouldn't be so mean as to leave you totally hanging, eh?
Bittersweet Chocolate Dipped PB Cookies
1 batch Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies - Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies recipe can be found here
1 pound (16 oz) HIGH QUALITY bittersweet chocolate (please please please use good chocolate, its what brings these cookies from amazing to extraordinary.)
Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a microwave proof dish melt the chocolate in 30 second increments, stirring in between. When chocolate is almost completely melted remove from the microwave and stir with a rubber spatula until smooth.
Transfer chocolate to a dish wide enough to fit the peanut butter cookies, but narrow enough to have some depth for dipping. Taking one cookie at a time, dip half of the cookie into the chocolate and then lay carefully on the prepared cookie sheet. Repeat until the cookie sheets are full. Chill in the refrigerator for 45 minutes or until the chocolate is set completely. These can then be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator or a freezer-safe bag in the freezer.
But who are you kidding? If you're anything like me, you're just going to...
