Peanut Butter Heart Blossom Cookies

Peanut Butter Heart Blossom Cookies
These cookies, let me tell you. Perfectly soft and chewy! I’d imagine it’s pretty close to being in heaven after letting your teeth sink into that first warm bite of these thick peanut butter cookies.

I’ll admit, peanut butter cookies are not always my favorite. I’m more of a oatmeal chocolate chip kinda gal, BUT these are an exception. My favorite peanut butter cookies I’ve tasted. The texture, the flavor, the creaminess…I’ll never be able to eat a store-bought cookie ever again.

I can thank Averie from Averie Cooks for this basic recipe. I highly recommend checking out her other sweets! Everything I’ve ever made of hers was beyond amazing and spot-on.

Walmart stores is selling a limited edition Valentine’s Candy Kit (on their Bake Center display) which will include the silicon mold I used to make these heart-blossom cookies. I’d recommend getting one early as they will sell out quickly!

I only filled the heart mold halfway with the chocolate Candiquik and this was a good amount. Otherwise you’d have a huge piece of chocolate and it would be a bit much on this small cookie. Plus, this way you only have a small piece of chocolate and as you can see it begins to melt and sink into the warm cookie. Heavenly…

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
