Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Hearts

I hope you're having a fun day filled with love and that you're hanging out with your favorite people.  To me, Valentine's Day has never been about receiving fancy gifts but who I'm spending the day with.  If I can eat some chocolate, that's even better.  Today I baked some peanut butter cookies with heart shaped Dove chocolates and my husband was the taste taster.  We both loved the melted chocolate on top of the gooey, soft cookie. 

I found the recipe from The Hungry Housewife

                                            Peanut Butter Cookies with Chocolate Hearts


  • 1¾ cup Brown Sugar, packed
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup Smooth Peanut Butter
  • 3 tablespoons Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg
  • 1¾ cup Flour
  • ¾ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ¾ teaspoon Salt
  • 2 8.87oz. packages Dove Milk Chocolate Silky Smooth Heart Promises, unwrapped
  • Granulated Sugar, for rolling cookies

    Preheat oven to 350.
    Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or non stick foil.
    In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer, cream together the brown sugar and butter together.
    Mix in the peanut butter,milk and vanilla extract.
    Add the egg and beat until combined.
    In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour,baking soda and salt.
    Mix in the dry ingredients into the peanut butter mixture and beat until thoroughly incorporated.
    Form into 1½ tablespoon balls and roll in granulated sugar.
    Place on baking sheet about 1″ apart and bake for 10 minutes.
    Remove from oven and gently press one Dove Heart into the middle of each cookie and place back into the oven and cook for an additional 2 minutes.
    Remove from oven and allow to cool on cookies sheet for 2 minutes.
    Remove from cookie sheet and allow to cool on a cooling rack completely.
    The original recipe says it makes 49 cookies but I only got 30.  I must have made mine too big.  I bought only one bag of Dove Chocolates so it worked out fine.
