Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie
Updated: Feb 5, 2019
These are EPIC :) You will fall in love with them and they will be a family staple for holidays, birthdays, you name it! What is also great, is that these cookies have 4 ingredients and that is all! We use to make these cookies all the time with the Almond Bark. It however has high fructose corn syrup in it, artificial flavoring and the list goes on and on of things I cannot pronounce. So this recipe is on point to making it a lot better for you as well, but yet again, not short on taste!
1 box of 365 Golden Round crackers
1 jar of 365 crunchy Peanut Butter
1 (24 oz) bag of 365 Semi- Sweet Chocolate chips
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
It is hard with natural peanut butter to get it to mix without spilling the oil all over the place. So a little hack I have is that I pour the whole jar into a medium sized bowl and stir it all together and then pour it back into the jar. SO easy and so mad at myself for not doing this years ago!!
1: Take the crackers out of the box and match them up for a top and bottom. The box normally has broken ones and so I go through to find ones that are not broken apart and match them up and lay them on a large cutting board.
2: Next take a teaspoon to a teaspoon and half of peanut butter in between the two crackers and sandwich it together. Do not worry if peanut butter spills out a bit, just makes it extra yummy! I don't normally measure out the peanut butter specifically, so once you get a hang of how much you'd like to use, that will work perfect! See the picture for clarification
3: Next line a deep tin with parchment paper. Get a pot out and fill with 2 cups of water and place on a stove at high heat. Then place 1/2 of the chocolate chips in a stove top safe bowl, over the pot as seen to the side. Melt the chocolate and then turn to medium heat, I like to keep the chocolate on the heat while dipping so it stays the right consistency and coats well!
4: Take tongs and put a sandwich between the tongs and start coating in the chocolate on the stove top, until all sides are covered as seen below
5: Place the coated cookies in the tin lined with parchment paper and keep repeating until all cookies are covered. Then place aluminum foil over the tin, and place in freezer for 3 hours to let the chocolate set. Then continue to keep in freezer, fridge or on your counter top.... or just keep popping them in your mouth one by one... no judgments here!! They are that good!
ENJOY!! Happy Holidays!!
