The weather in Chicago is brutal right now so what a perfect time to bake with kids since many of the tikes are still off from school. This coming weekend for many of you will be snowy and bitterly cold. That’s another reason to bake, don’t you think? So grab the kids and get to mixing and baking. You’ll be glad you tried my recipe adaptation for Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Crinkles created by Maryanne Cabrera of thelittleepicurean.com. Great website with simple, fun, delicious, and elegant recipes.

Since you follow my blog, you know I’m an avid baker and have no problem giving a shout out to other follow bakers which is the case in point of this recipe post. I am in love with Bake from Scratch and the feed feed community. Bake from Scratch is a baking magazine filled with incredible recipes from some of the most talented bakers around. This past holiday season a special issue was printed featuring holiday cookies. These peanut butter cookies were featured in this holiday cookie special issue. However so many of the cookies in this magazine can be made throughout the year so I’m keeping it handy. The “feed feed community” allows you to share and access hundreds of wonderful recipes. Both are incredible reads and should not be missed.

Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Crinkles

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened

2 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar

1 ½ cups creamy peanut butter

2 large eggs, room temperature

1 t. pure vanilla extract

2 2/3 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

2 t. baking soda

1 t. baking powder

1 t. kosher salt

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar

12 oz. chocolate almond bark

Honey Roasted Peanuts, chopped


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

Using bowl of stand mixer, beat butter, brown sugar, and peanut butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 3 – 4 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl as needed. Beat in eggs and vanilla until just combined.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. With mixer at low-speed, gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture until just combined.

Place granulated sugar and confectioners’ sugar in two separate small bowls. Form dough into 1-inch or walnut-size balls with cookie scoop. Roll each dough ball into granulated sugar then confectioners’ sugar. Place cookie balls 2-inches apart on prepared cookie sheets.

Bake until cookies begin to crack on top, about 15 – 17 minutes. Let cookies cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

When cookies are cool, melt chocolate almond bark in a microwave safe bowl. Dip half of each cookie into chocolate, place on parchment paper and sprinkle chocolate with chopped honey roasted peanuts. Let cookies stand about 10 minutes until set. Remove and store cookies in airtight containers at room temperature for up to 5 days.


Makes about 48 cookies.
