Ingredients

  • Peanut Butter Cookies:
  • 1 ¼ cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar + 3 tbsp for rolling cookies divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • Dipping Chocolate:
  • 1 cup dark chocolate melts semi sweet chocolate chips will work too
  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil
  • Sprinkles

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat.
  • Combine together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl; mix well.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and peanut butter with a hand mixer, until combined. Add 1/2 cup of the white sugar and the brown sugar then beat until creamy and smooth. Add the egg and vanilla. Mix until combined.
  • Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon, until just combined.
  • Take about 2 tablespoons of dough and form into a ball.
  • Roll in the remaining 3 tablespoons of white sugar.
  • Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  • Place into the oven and bake the cookies for 9-10 minutes or until they are golden at the edges and just set. Don’t over bake!
  • Remove from the oven and let the cookies set on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Once the cookies are cool and hardened, melt the dark chocolate, with 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil, according to package directions.
  • Dip half of each cookie into the melted dark chocolate, tapping off the excess, and place on a piece of parchment paper.
  • Sprinkle each cookie immediately with sprinkles (so it will stick before the chocolate hardens).
  • Store in a sealed container with parchment paper between layers.
  • Serve with ice cold milk. Enjoy!
