Chocolate Dipped Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Thank you Bob’s Red Mill for sponsoring this post! All opinions and text are my own.

I didn’t think peanut butter cookies could get any better until now. I took my Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies and dipped them in semi sweet chocolate and coated them in nuts, pretzels and sea salt.

These cookies are AMAZING! Perfectly chewy, soft and the perfect combination of sweet and salty.

I slightly under baked the cookies to get the soft, chewy center. Melt in your mouth on the inside and firm and slightly crisp on the edges. Just how I like my cookies.

These cookies are made with creamy peanut butter, unsalted butter, a mix of brown and white sugar. A pinch of salt, baking soda and flour are also added. I added brown sugar for a chewier texture and more flour for a thicker cookie.

This recipe makes a dozen pretty large sized cookies. You can always make them a bit smaller to get more than a dozen.
