Peanut butter cookies dipped in chocolate for Valentine's Day will warm his heart and fill his stomach. So simple and so good. I think homemade is always better for gift giving because you put your love (not to mention, elbow grease) into it!

Directions

  6. Place the hearts on the prepared baking sheet.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, 7 to 10 minutes.
  8. Cool completely on the baking sheet.
  9. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave at 30 second intervals until fully melted, stirring between intervals.
  10. Dip the bottom and sides of each cookie in the melted chocolate.
  11. Place cookies on wax paper to dry.

These cookies were very easy for my 10 year old to make. The chocolate was a bit difficult to get on and I even added a bit of cream to it to smooth it out.

These were good cookies, but I thought that they would be really easy to make. Unfortunately, and maybe this is my fault, getting the chocolate to look really good on the cookie is very difficult. Sorry, but thanks for posting the recipe.

Made for my cookie monster husband. He said "best pb cookies I've ever eaten" Easy to make. I used 1 1/2 c pb and sugar with 1 egg. Got 18 cookies. Put big teaspoon of crisco in chocolate chips and melted in micro. Only needed 1/2 bag of chips.
