Easy Chocolate-Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies

This was one of the two desserts that I made today. I was in the kitchen baking all afternoon! These cookies are kind of "famous" in our family. If we need to make something sweet for an occasion or give to friends we usually make this. We always get lots of compliments. Try them  out!

Becky Crocker Peanut Butter Cookie Mix (requires egg, oil, and water)
Baking Chocolate- Almond Bark works great! Use either Chocolate or Vanilla flavor (need 1/3 of the pack for one mix)
Sprinkles (optional)

Follow the directions on the mix packet. I like to add 1/2 Tablespoon extra of oil to make the cookies more moist. After baking the cookies, let them completely cool off. 

Once the cookies are cool, melt the chocolate in the microwave for around a minute. Use a wide mug to be able to dip the cookies in. Make sure not to burn the chocolate or it won't work (and will taste funky). Dip the cookies halfway, and then place them on wax paper for them to cool. If you want sprinkles add them for some color and fun. Chopped nuts are always a great topping as well. Cool completely and enjoy! 

 Final Product!

Today I used the chocolate and vanilla flavored melting bark. Both are DELICIOUS! I made these for my aunt and uncle and a family friend that my mom and I will be seeing next week on our way down to Kentucky.
