Peanut Butter Love

A Valentine Treat for my Etsy shop, JulseyMarie

I wanted a cookie that would be perfect for a Valentine treat.  One that would be fun to make and be easy to ship.  A cookie that someone could buy for a special someone. Or even themselves. 

I love peanut butter blossoms but was afraid the 'kiss' on the cookie would get knocked off in shipping.  I found these Dove milk chocolate hearts and thought they would be perfect.  Topped with a pink tinted milk chocolate drizzle for effect.  I think this is the perfect treat for a Valentine sweet.

Peanut Butter Love
(Thanks Myra for the name suggestion...I love it!!)

Cream together:
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup softened butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
3 eggs


3 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

Mix until thoroughly combined.

Roll into 1" balls and dip in sugar.
Place on cookie sheet.

Bake at 375* for 7-8 minutes or until just golden brown.

While cookies are baking, unwrap Dove milk chocolate hearts.
(Or substitute with some other type of chocolate candy)

Place unwrapped chocolates in warm cookies.

Melt white chocolate discs slowly in microwave.  Add a drop or two of red food coloring. 
Drizzle over cooled cookies.
