I received these as a gift many years ago, now they are one of my favorite things to make and give for holiday parties as a hostess gift or to new neighbors. These never disappoint.
My family started making these almost 30 years ago. Perfect for Christmas gift giving. Skip the shortening, though. Just use almond bark...a little healthier that way. :) We melt the chocolate in a big glass bowl in the microwave and dip with 2 forks. Using a glass bowl lets us warm up the chocolate as needed throughout the process. So easy
I used Ghirardelli dark chocolate melting wafers instead of chocolate chips. I used a tip a saw for dipping chocolate. I took two plastic forks, cut off the two middle tines of the forks and used the forks them for dipping into the chocolate. Makes the dipping so easy with no mess. I make these for my grandsons. They love them. Tastes like a reeses peanut butter cup to me. YUM
I'm interested in making these, but how do you dip without getting the chocolate on your fingers?
I grew up making these, not really a new recipe. Just use chocolate bark. Then no need for shortening. Much easier.
Cannot rate this as I have made them for years, but differently. I use chocolate almond bark, and they are delicious. I can't imagine that these aren't as well.
I make these often at Christmas. The only difference is that I have always used chocolate almond bark. They are easy
so simple! I do not use shortening. Just melt in double boiler and dip.
My mom makes these every year for Christmas. This cookie recipe is even slightly more complicated than her version - she doesn't use shortening and just melts the chocolate in the microwave. Either way, you get a quick and tasty dessert that's easy to transport and share! PLUS the peanut butter fills you up a bit more than just sugar cookies do.
For something so simple and easy, this quick dessert is delicious! They are addicting! Yum!
