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!

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, 7 to 10 minutes.

  • Cool completely on the baking sheet.

  • Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave at 30 second intervals until fully melted, stirring between intervals.

  • Dip the bottom and sides of each cookie in the melted chocolate.

  • 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. Read More

I got five cookies from this. After that I couldn't get the dough to stay together. Won't do this again. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

Very easy to make. I had to add more sugar as the dough seemed too wet based on measurements listed. Leave at least an inch between cookies on baking sheet as they expand into eachother & end up looking more like boobs than hearts. Dough does not hold cookie cutter shape well. Read More

Great simple cookie. To make it easier to dip in chocolate melt your chocolate chips with a tablespoon or two of shortening. It will help a lot with thinning it out and making it easier to spread. Read More

I did look at the reviews first and I modified recipe by adding a bit more sugar, along with some butter to the melted chocolate. It was a bit thick but I dipped the cookies. Overall with the tweaks it was a tasty recipe. Read More

Loved these, and they were so easy. I took other reviewers’ recommendations of adding a little shortening while melting the chocolate and didn’t have any issues with it. Read More
