Dark Chocolate Dipped Peanut Cookies


1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped peanuts, divided
10 oz. dark chocolate, chopped

Preheat oven to 375ºF.

In a large bowl, mix butter and peanut butter on medium speed. Add 3/4 cup flour and the next 5 ingredients (up until vanilla) and mix just until combined. Add remaining flour and mix. Stir in 1/2 cup chopped peanuts.

Scoop onto parchment lined baking sheet. Flatten each scoop with a fork in a criss cross pattern.

Bake 7-9 minutes until golden brown. Cool for a few minutes on the pan and then transfer to cooling rack to finish cooling cookies.

Place dark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second increments (stirring well between each) until fully melted. This will probably take 2 minutes or so.

Once cookies are fully cooled, dip in the chocolate and place on either parchment or wax paper lined pans. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set.
