How to make it

  • Combine peanut butter, butter and honey in electric or stand mixer and beat until smooth.
  • Add powdered sugar and mix until dough forms.
  • Refrigerate about 30 minutes.
  • Pinch off about T sized bits of peanut butter dough and "roll" between your palms to form a rope of dough about as big around as your little finger and about 2 inches long. See Photo
  • Arrange on metal baking sheet.
  • If dough become too soft, place it back in the fridge or the freezer for a short time.
  • If your hands becomes sticky while rolling the ropes, dust them with a bit of powdered sugar, but don't wet them :)
  • Place tray in freezer while preparing shortbread dough.
  • Beat butter and sugar until creamy
  • Add corn syrup and vanilla and mix to combine.
  • Cut in flour and cornstarch to create a moldable dough
  • Form into ball and refrigerate about 20 minutes. See Photo
  • When both the shortbread dough and the peanut butter dough ropes have chilled, pinch of about 2-3T sized bits of shortbread dough and pat between palms to create a "sheet" of dough that a rope will fit into. See Photo
  • Fold edges up and over to complete cover peanut butter rope.
  • Return to the same cool baking sheet.
  • Repeat to cover all peanut butter ropes. Try to make sure all edges are sealed and press together any breaks or cracks.
  • Bake at 325 for about 18 minutes until shortbread is just barely lightly browning. See Photo
  • Let cool completely. Shortbread should cool to a crispy shell.
  • Melt Chocolate coating per package directions and dip each cookie into chocolate to cover top and sides. See Photo
  • Place uncovered side down on cooling rack.
  • Repeat with all cookies and let cool completely before serving.

    Keni, These look really good. I might have to give them a try sometime. I have a recipe on here that I named Nutty Buddies because I think they taste a bit like Little Debbie's Nutty Buddy Bars. They are so simple. You can have them made in 5 minutes and eat in 10!

    Little Debbie peanut butter snacks were good but they tasted kind of fake/chemically and had a weird aftertaste to me. It's one of those "you get what you pay for" kind of things and when I was growing up, those things were 35ยข.

    Augh, like those nutty bars? This looks so good, you're killing me here, woman. I'm TRYING to be well behaved but you had to go make something as awesome as this.

    Thanks, guys, it was fun. :) Ana, you can sub a light tasting honey for the corn syrup. It is there to give the cookie the texture I wanted, but it's not crucial. I always have a small jar of it in my house, but I don't use it very often, at all. I think I bought this last one about 2 years ago. ;)
