Black-bottom Peanut Butter Cookies!

Posted on

A new twist on the traditional peanut butter cookie!



  • Mix peanut butter, sugar and eggs together in a mixing bowl. Using a Large Cookie Scoop,  scoop batter onto cookie sheets and press with fork for surface design.   Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.  Cool completely.
  • Melt chocolate candy melts in microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between.
  • Spread parchment paper on a flat even surface
  • Spoon about 2 tsp of melted chocolate onto the parchment paper
  • Press a cooled cookie into the center of the chocolate.

  • Allow chocolate to cool and harden.  Drizzle chocolate over the top if desired.
  • When chocolate is cool and hard, peel cookies off the paper and serve!

Makes about 24 cookies.

My thoughts:  I love peanut butter cookies- and this recipe is incredibly simple (even kids would love making this!)  I had extra candy melts from another project and that was the inspiration for the “black-bottom” part of this cookie (that, and the fact that I am ADDICTED to Fudge stripe cookies!!!)  I wasn’t sure if the cookie and chocolate would stick together well- but they were inseparable!  The drizzle on top just adds to the gourmet feel of these cookies.  I hope you get a chance to try these– the “WOW’s” when you serve them are well worth the little extra time with the chocolate!  Enjoy!  r-
