With the holidays in full swing, I love indulging in creative recipes like these chocolate-dipped chewy peanut butter cookies. They are the perfect sweet treat to end a holiday meal. My favorite part about these sweet cookies is that you can get creative by topping them with sea salt, crumbled peanut butter cups, or a drizzle of peanut butter. These double peanut butter decadent cookies would make a great addition to any Christmas cookie exchange party too.
My challenge during the holiday season has been not eat too many desserts. In the past, I have had to be careful about what dishes I could eat or how many sweet treats I could have in order to avoid digestive health symptoms like indigestion and heartburn. If I wasn’t paying close attention, I would end up with that burning sensation of heartburn in my chest, which is not how I wanted to spend my time with my family. This year I won’t have to pass on my favorite dishes or desserts thanks to PEPCID COMPLETE® which provide digestive health relief and lasts all day or night. I will be able to enjoy some delicious treats like these tummy friendly chocolate-dipped chewy peanut butter cookies.
How to Make Chocolate-Dipped Chewy Peanut Butter Christmas Cookie Recipe
1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Toppings: sea salt, peanut butter cups, peanut butter
Printable recipe below.
Mix together the butter, both sugars, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla. Beat on low-medium for two minutes.
In a separate bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, a little at a time, until completely combined.
Set the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Use a cookie scoop to shape the dough into even balls and place on a cookie sheet.
Bake the cookies for 15 minutes until a light golden brown. Then, allow them to cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet.
Remove the cookies and place on parchment paper to cool.
In a saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil until melted. Slowly stir in the chocolate chips. Once the chips have melted completely, transfer to a small dish.
Gently dip the cookies into the melted chocolate and set back on the parchment paper. Sprinkle on your favorite toppings like sea salt or crumbled peanut butter cups.
Using a decorating squeeze bottle, add a few scoops of peanut butter into the bottle and warm in the microwave for 30 seconds. Drizzle peanut butter on top of the cookies.
Let the chocolate and peanut butter set for 3-4 hours.
