If you love peanut butter and chocolate together, try making these Girl Scout Peanut Butter Patties at home.
Place ½ cup powdered sugar and butter in a medium bowl, and cream with an electric mixer on medium until light and creamy. Add 1 tablespoon vanilla and flour, and beat until combined. Wrap dough in plastic, and place in refrigerator for 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Roll out dough to a ¼-inch thickness. Using a 2-inch round cookie cutter, shape cookies. Create a medium-shallow well with the back of a spoon (it will later be filled with peanut butter). Bake for about 10 minutes. Cool cookies on a wire rack.
Place peanut butter with 2 teaspoons vanilla extract in a saucepan and heat on low until it becomes soft. Stir to combine. Watch the peanut butter so it doesn’t cook or burn.
Place the chocolate and heavy cream in a bowl over simmering water. Slowly stir to combine. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing after each addition until mixture becomes pourable. Set aside.
Assemble the cookies:
Spoon the peanut butter filling into shallow cookie wells. Place the cookies in refrigerator for 1 hour for peanut butter filling to harden.
Remove cookies from refrigerator. Pour chocolate on the top of each cookie, or use a spatula to spread.
