Easter Peanut Butter Cookies

Take an ordinary peanut butter cookie and turn it into an Easter treat!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup Wilton milk chocolate
  • Easter sprinkles

Directions:

  1. Combine, sugar, egg and peanut butter and combine.
  2. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto a greased cookie sheet. Using a fork press down lightly making a criss-cross pattern.
  3. Bake on 350°F for 6 to 8 minutes. Do not over bake.
  4. While the cookies are cooling melt the Wilton milk chocolate in a microwave safe bowl stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Let cool 1-2 minutes.
  5. Dip the cooled cookies one at a time in the chocolate. I also used a small spoon because my bowl wasn’t ‘deep’ enough.
  6. Lay on a lined cookie sheet and sprinkle with Easter sprinkles.
