Peanutty Perfection!!

Here is a recipe from that I love!  It is a simple peanut butter cookie recipe but something special after being dipped in chocolate and chopped peanuts.  Enjoy!

1 Cup Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 Egg
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla (optional but delicious)

1 Cup Semi-sweet Chocolate (I usually add a little bit of oil to make the chocolate thinner and easier to work with)
1/2 Cup Chopped Unsalted Peanuts


  1. Mix together the peanut butter, sugar,  egg, and vanilla in medium bowl with a fork until everything is mixed.  Cover and put in the freezer for 15 minutes, or refrigerator for 30 minutes or longer.  
  2. Preheat oven to 325.
  3. When cold, roll the dough into small balls, about tablespoon size.  Place on a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.  
  4. Once all the balls are rolled, take a fork to make the criss-cross pattern on the cookies.
  5. Cook the cookies for about 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.  
  6. Remove from oven and wait a few minutes, then place on a rack to cool. 
  7. Melt the chocolate in a heat proof bowl in the microwave.  It takes about a minute but stop to stir.
  8. Take the cooled cookie and dip 1/2 in the chocolate then into the chopped peanuts.  Repeat with all cookies. 
  9. Place the cookies on a cookie sheet that has been covered in wax paper and place in the freezer until the chocolate has hardened.  
  10. ENJOY!
