Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies

I am so happy to be partnering with OXO and the Cookies for Kid's Cancer Campaign
again this year! This charity is near and dear to my heart and I am honored to be a part
of it!

OXO provided me with their non-stick pro cookie sheet, medium cookie scoop and
cookie spatula to bake my cookies.  I know I have told you in the past, but I just love
OXO products!  They are such good quality and work really well!  OXO will be donating
$100 to Cookies for Kid's Cancer for each blog post dedicated to this campaign in
October (up to $100,000).  Be sure to look for this sticker when purchasing OXO products.

Last year I shared my Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Sunflower
Seed Drops (you can find the recipe here), so I thought I would keep with the peanut
butter theme, but make a more traditional peanut butter cookie.  Since Halloween is
right around the corner I bedazzled my cookies by dipping them in dark chocolate and
then sprinkling them with Halloween colored sprinkles.  Peanut butter, dark chocolate
and sprinkles - now that's a perfect cookie combination!

The OXO cookie spatula is the perfect size for my cookies!

If you don't have melting wafers you can use chocolate chips, but I love how easy the wafer
are to melt and they taste delicious too! Now don't you want a cookie :)

Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies 

1/2 C whole wheat pastry flour
3/4 C all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 C butter, softened
1/2 C creamy peanut butter
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 C coconut sugar or regular sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Ghirardelli dark melting wafers

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and
salt; set aside.  In the bowl of a stand mixer cream the butter and peanut butter until
combined.  Add sugars and beat until fluffy.  Add egg and vanilla.
Slowly add the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined.  Using a medium cookie
scoop drop dough onto the prepared baking sheet.

Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool cookies on the baking
sheet for 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.

Melt dark chocolate melting wafer per package instructions.  Dip the cookies in the
melted chocolate and place them on a sheet of parchment paper.  Decorate with
sprinkles.  Once chocolate has set cookies are ready to be served.
