Heart Shaped Peanut Butter Cookies are the perfect treat for Valentine’s Day. They are easy to make and it’s the ideal dessert to incorporate the kids.
As Valentine’s Day approaches “some” people have chocolate, diamonds, flowers and romantic dinner dates on their mind. When you’re not thinking about your own special day you are busy prepping for your kid’s school parties. Did you spell the name correctly on all 42 Unicorn sticker cards? Did you get the teacher something? You forget that you signed up to bring cookies to the party and you fret about making your own or going to the store for a batch of soft frosted sugar cookies. Or a batch of these Peanut Butter Cookies.
These heart-shaped peanut butter cookies will be a crowd pleaser with kids and adults. In fact, I tested out a batch and took them to work. My husband and the kids were mad that I was sharing and my co-workers were upset that I didn’t bring more cookies. I guess you can’t please everyone.
For this recipe, you can swap out Reese’s hearts for Hershey kisses. My tip is to allow the cookies to cool for at least 5 minutes after you’ve removed them from the oven before placing any chocolate on top. After placing the chocolate on top, I placed the cookies in the refrigerator for 3-4 minutes to allow the chocolate to cool with the cookies, so I didn’t have a circle blob on top. I may have found that out the hard way.
*Please check with your kid’s teacher for any peanut allergies before bringing them into the classroom.*
