By melting some chocolate and peanut butter and drizzling it over them. Really, it’s that simple and oh so creamy and delicious.

Let’s get right to the recipe:

Oven Temperature 350 degrees.

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature.

1 cup peanut butter

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1 egg

2 tsp vanilla

1 1/4 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

For Drizzles:

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 bar milk or dark chocolate

First, cream the butter and peanut butter together until creamy. Then mix in the sugars until the mixture turns fluffy, about 1-2 minutes. Add the egg, milk and vanilla and mix well.

Second, mix the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and then add it to the mixture until blended, making sure to not over beat it.

Third, roll into 1 tsp balls and then roll them into sugar. Place them on a cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. Pull them out when they just begin to turn color on the edges. They continue to cook on the cooling rack, so make sure to move them onto the cooling rack not later than 1 minute after removing them from the oven.

As the cookies are cooling start to melt the chocolate and then use another pot to melt the peanut butter. I use the double broiler method.

Pour each of them into separate bags and clip a tiny corner off.

And then just drizzle away, starting with the chocolate first.
