  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg (room temperature)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ cup dark 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.
