Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Mix together flour and salt.
  2. Beat together butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. At low speed, beat in flour mixture, 1 cup at a time, beating well after each addition, until a dough forms. Shape dough into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for 1 hour.
  3. Roll dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. On flat surface, shape each ball into an egg shape, with bottom side flat. Place cookies, 2 inches apart, on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake cookies until just set, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.
  5. In a saucepan, melt chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly. Dip bottom half of each cookie into chocolate, allowing excess to drip back into pan.
  6. Immediately press candies into chocolate-covered portion to decorate as desired. Place on waxed paper. Chill until set.
