1cupcreamy peanut butter
¾cupdark brown sugar
1large egg(room temperature)
1tsppure vanilla extract
½cupdark chocolate melting wafers*
Preheat oven to 350 F, then line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Combine peanut butter, sugars, and baking soda in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Mix on medium until well incorporated, about 2 minutes.
Add egg, vanilla, and salt, then beat well.
Scoop out dough into equal portions with a small cookie scoop, placing dough about 2 inches apart. Roll dough into rounds, then use fork tines to create a criss cross pattern on each. Bake 8-10 minutes, then cool 5 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack. Cool completely.
Place chocolate wafers in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds, then stir with a spatula. Continue heating chocolate in 30 second increments, stirring until completely melted.
Dip ⅓ - ½ of each cooled cookie into melted chocolate, then immediately add sprinkles before chocolate cools.
*If desired, you can use another type of chocolate.
