Keltin and I don’t do anything crazy on Valentine’s Day but I use it as an excuse to try something a bit different. I made chocolate covered strawberries for the two of us but I also made chocolate cookies with peanut butter morsels for my coworkers. I thought that it would make the day a little bit sweeter.

- Line baking sheet with parchment paper or reusable baking sheets.
- Using a dough scoop, place dough on baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to cooling rack.
If you want you can stop here and enjoy the cookies as they are. I wanted to take mine a step further and decorate mine for Valentines Day.
- While cookies cool, melt the dipping chocolate according to the directions. I prefer using a double boiler but you are welcome to use either.
- Once the cookies are completely cool and the chocolate is melted dip half the cookie into the melted chocolate. Set on wax paper, sprinkle with sprinkles and allow to dry.
- Repeat with remaining cookies.
I hope that you enjoy this recipe. I took these cookies to work and my coworkers loved them. These are fun and easy cookies. Hope that you had a wonderful February 14th and I hope that you have a great weekend!
