More Peanut Butter and Chocolate

I saw this recipe last week and knew I had to make them ASAP! With only 5 ingredients these were a cinch to whip up. My problem came into play when it was time to dip these in the chocolate and peanut butter. It was almost 11pm and I was exhausted. I could have waited until this morning, but didn't want to to do that either. So instead of dipping each end like the recipe instructs, I just stated dipping the tops and bottoms of the cookies to save time. Luckily, it didn't hurt the taste of the cookie at all :)

Peanut Butter Cookies
Source: Bakerella



1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
4 oz. Baker's semi-sweet chocolate, melted
1/2 cup finely chopped peanuts
Preheat oven to 325.

Mix peanut butter, sugar and egg until well blended. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Remove and roll mixture into 18 balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Flatten each ball by using a fork to make a criss-cross pattern.

Bake 18-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet and then cool completely on a wire rack.

Melt chocolate. Dip one end of cookie into melted chocolate and then dip into chopped peanuts. Repeat with other side. Place on wax paper covered cookie sheet and refrigerate until chocolate hardens.
