Make It Happen

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325° F.

Step 2

Thaw cookie dough until it is pliable. Take 2-3 rows of cookie dough cubes (at a time) and work them into a ball. Put the dough balls on a sheet of lightly floured parchment paper. Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough until it is about 1/4-inch thick.

Step 3

Step 3 visual: roll out cookie dough and cut into circles

Using a 2-inch circle cookie cutter, cut out circles of dough and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Step 4

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges become lightly golden. Remove the cookies from the tray and place on a cooling rack until completely cooled.

Step 5

While the cookies are cooling, combine the peanut butter and maple syrup in a small bowl. Mix well and set aside.

Step 6

Once the cookies are cool, place a heaping 1/2 tsp. of peanut butter mixture in the center of each circle. Shake and tap the cookie to spread the peanut butter evenly. Place cookies in the freezer to allow the peanut butter to firm up. About 10 minutes.

Step 7

While the cookies are in the freezer, place the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small, microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave for 30-second increments until fully melted. Stir after each interval. Set it aside.

Step 8

Once the peanut butter is firm, remove the cookies from the freezer and place them on a cooling rack. Place the cooling rack over a parchment-lined baking sheet. This will catch any chocolate drippings.

Step 9

Steps 6-9 visual: put peanut butter on top of circle then freezer. After peanut butter is firm, Pour 1 tbsp. of melted chocolate on top.

Pour 1 tbsp. of melted chocolate on each cookie, letting it coat the top and sides. Shake the cookies to evenly distribute the chocolate.

Step 10

Once all the cookies are covered in chocolate, use a metal spatula to transfer them to a parchment-lined baking sheet or container. Place them in the refrigerator until the chocolate is completely set. About 15 minutes. Be careful when placing the cookies on the tray. You don’t want any of them to touch as they will stick together.
