Chocolate Heart Peanut Butter Cookies

Surprise! I have another delicious Valentine recipe for ya!

Earlier this week I asked Matt what sort of Valentine treat he wanted me to bake this year. I gave him several cake, cupcake and cookie options and he surprisingly said "I want those amazing chocolate heart cookies you made last year!" That was great news for me because the rest of the options were going to take a lot more work.
Chocolate Heart Peanut Butter Cookies

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® peanut butter cookie mix
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon water
1 egg
2 tablespoons sugar
36 heart-shaped milk chocolate candies

Heat oven to 375°F. In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, oil, water and egg until dough forms. Shape dough into 36 (1-inch) balls; roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately press chocolate candy into top of each cookie. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 20 minutes, before storing in tightly covered container.

Yields 3 dozen cookies.
I must say, these heart cookies are super addicting. Anytime there is a combination of peanut butter and chocolate, I lose all will power to have just one.  I think these may just have to be a Valentine tradition in our home.

  2. I made these! But the candy ended up melting. Maybe I put them on the hot cookies too soon. They were still yummy:)
