Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies {Giveaway}

Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies-1802

I’m so thankful to whomever came up with both chocolate & peanut butter…then, whomever took it to the next level and combined the two. Thank you to the Einstein of the palate! It’s that combination that just makes me happy, no matter what form of food it takes. I’m just so glad in this case, it’s taken the form of a cookie. 🙂

This cookie is part of The Pampered chef Holiday Bake-Off using the GIANT baking bundle! I’m not even kidding, the box that all of these goodies came in was huge! Here’s just a taste of what was included in the bundle that I used for this recipe. And I have to say, I’m truly loving all of these excellent tools!

Just the other day at Target, I was oh-so-tempted to buy a new oven mit, because the cloth ones I have allow the heat to leak through and burn your hands if you hold things for too long. Ouch! But, this silicone oven mit is perfect and super soft in the inside. Oh, and I’m always looking for brown parchment paper that has the cutter on the box to rip it off and I’ve never found one until this box! Yippee!

I could seriously go on and on. The products are great and I’m so excited to give you the chance to win all of the over $200 worth of baking goodies!

Okay, back to these cookies.

Typical peanut butter cookies are more like shortbread and hard, but these peanut butter cookies are soft and chewy. Just how I like them! The dip of bittersweet chocolate on the end is a wonderful Einstein-compliment to the peanut butter flavor. And I love the crunchy texture of the peanut sprinkles.

Can I just use peanut sprinkles on everything?

Alright, you’ve got to promise me you’ll make these cookies. It couldn’t be easier with a drop cookie!

AND…

…they are 100% whole wheat. You wouldn’t be able to tell from a mile away. That’s how good they are. Just don’t look at how much butter and sugar is in them. It’s the holiday’s, we’ll just let it slide. 😉

The glass airtight container is the perfect size for these giant cookies. Unfortunately, they didn’t last long enough to enjoy the benefit of airtightness. They’re just so good!!!

Oh, and be sure to check out the gif down at the bottom! 😀

  1. My favorites are a tie between peanut butter and chocolate chop. I love how happy people get when you bake chocolate chip, but I’m a peanut butter girl. Guess it depends how selfish/giving I’m feeling.

  2. This is the perfect cookie…chocolate and peanut butter…yum! I love making oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with nuts and/or dried fruit.

  3. In middles school, my best friend and I made *green* chocolate chip cookies ALL THE TIME! Not sure why we liked adding food coloring so much, but they always came out green… Nowadays, I like to mix things up. On my “to bake” list are gingerbread cookies and pistachio cherry biscotti.

  4. Gosh, these are going oto be made next! However, I’ll have to wait until Feb…cause I’m currently on sugar overload. I think a good month and I’ll be ready for more sugar. 🙂 I don’t really have a favorite cookie. However, I only eat soft cookies….not a fan of crunchy cookies.

  5. I love to make biscotti and give them as Christmas presents. Most cookies taste best within 1-2 days of baking, but biscotti get better with age and are easy to make in the weeks leading up to the holiday.

  6. Sweet dream cookies. They are a version of chocolate chip cookies from a B & B that used to be in Calistoga California that I visited one time.

  7. Peanut butter with dark chocolate chips . . . you know for the antioxidants . . . Totally healthy 😉

    PS – look at you getting all fancy with the gif

  8. I love making spritz cookies, and powdered sugar crescents (mexican wedding cookies). Love to make the land o lakes sugar cookies or icebox shortbread cookies. Yum

  9. I hardly ever make cookies now day, because it’s just my hubby and I. If I did choco chip or Mexica wedding cakes might be it!
