5 from 1 reviews

Peanut butter and chocolate is one of the best combos! The cookie base is crumbly and buttery, filled peanut butter and dipped in chocolate. 


  • 1 stick (4 oz) unsalted butter, room temp
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp. powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 23 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate


  1. Pre heat oven to 350 F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Cream butter and powdered sugar. 
  3. Add vanilla extract and egg yolk and mix until incorporated.
  4. On low speed add flour and mix until flour is almost incorporated. The dough will be crumbly.
  5. Transfer to a floured surface. Mix the dough with your hands until the dough comes together into a ball.
  6. Roll the dough into 1/4 – 1/3 inch thickness. Using a cookie cutter, cut the dough into 2 inch circles. Place the dough rounds onto prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart. 
  7. Bake cookies for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely.
  8. Stir peanut butter and maple syrup until combined.
  9. Melt chocolate in the microwave. Stir every 30 seconds. Once the chocolate is almost melted, do not microwave again. Stir the chocolate until it is smooth.
  10. To assemble the cookie: Place a scant 1 tsp of peanut butter onto bottom of cookie. Spread the peanut butter with your fingers leaving a small border around the cookie. Dip the cookie into chocolate so that the peanut butter is covered.
