The below post is also being featured today on Liz’s blog, Blog is the New BlackCheck out her blog for great recipes for any part of the meal.

On New Year’s Eve, my husband and I went to his brother’s apartment for a fun but low-key night.  They made us a delicious dinner and I, of course, brought dessert.  There were four of us and I made two desserts, an ice cream pie, and “cookies” composed of my favorite flavor combination, chocolate and peanut butter.  What better way to end the year?!

This was actually a very last minute dessert.  I happened to have extra peanut butter filling in my freezer and an open package of chocolate wafers in my cabinet.  You don’t even want to know how much baking chocolate I have on hand… When I thought through my inventory and the last time I used peanut butter filling, this recipe just came to me.

This recipe is really easy!  First, prepare the peanut butter filling (recipe below) and lay out twenty chocolate wafers on a baking sheet lined with wax paper

    Love! I love dipping pretzels in chocolate or anything salty–another fave is slathering peanut butter on a ritz cracker, topping with another, and dipping the whole thing in chocolate. Delish!

      Yum, the ritz + chocolate + peanut butter sounds amazing! I used some extra chocolate with pretzels:-)

    I would probably eat cardboard dipped in chocolate. Isn’t everything improved with chocolate? I guess if I have to choose, my favorite would be chocolate dipped strawberries. And, these cookies look pretty great, too!

    Mmmm…Love it!! Amazing cookies and I don’t even have to turn on the oven? I am all over this one! :)

      It is hard to resist finding an excuse to add butter cream, peanut butter filling, etc. to a cookie!

    I’m pretty sure you can’t go wrong with anything dipped in chocolate, but these look so good! And, perfect for making something fun when you don’t quite have time to bake..

    Oooh, these look wonderful and SO simple. I love how you took simple pantry ingredients and turned them into an elegant dessert.

    I would be in cookie heaven with these babies. Especially with the peanut butter ice cream in between. I need to have a dinner party just so I can invite you and we can eat confections like this.

  15. Alyssa @ Life of bLyss January 10, 2011 at 10:09 am #

    holy WOW, those look A-MAZING! I did dipped oreos topped with crushed peppermint (and oreo balls!) for christmas, but those look fantastic.

    I’m almost glad I didn’t do those… I think I’d have an extra 9 pounds on me. forget SHARING when something’s that wonderful!

    Hi! It’s my first time on your blog and OMG those cookies look amazing! I am in love with peanut butter and chocolate. My favorite thing to dip in chocolate would have to be pretzels. I even like to eat them with chocolate chips at times for that sweet and salty combo! ;)
