Chocolate PB&J Bomb Cookie
Updated: Aug 25
This is something I came up with that fits with Peanut Butter Day! The Chocolate PB&J bomb provides a nice cold creamy chocolate PB&J bite with the crunchiness of the warm chocolate chip cookie. :)
Chocolate PB&J Bombs are chocolate covered frozen PB&J bites, which you could eat alone. Then I put it on top of a chocolate chip cookie. I did not put it in the oven with the cookies because I thought it would melt and be messy.
It is a variation of the Frozen PB&J bites that I wrote about for Creativity Day.
There is one additional step when you are making Chocolate PB&J bombs (vs. Frozen PB&J bites) -- first you have to harden the chocolate in your mold.
What I used:
- Pillsbury Chocolate chip cookie dough
- Dark chocolate wafers
- Peanut Butter
- Cooking spray
- Silicone mold (if you do not have a silicone mold, you could try using a muffin tin. Then your Chocolate PB&J bomb would be bigger!)
Making the Chocolate PB&J Bombs:
1.) Take your silicone mold and coat the compartments you want to use with cooking spray or oil.
-- This helps them pop out of the mold after freezing.
-- If you are using a muffin tin, you could try using paper cupcake cups -- I didn't do this. I would coat those with cooking spray/oil too.
2.) Coat those compartments with melted chocolate and then put in the fridge to set for at least 15-30 min.
-- You can melt the chocolate in your microwave on defrost setting/50% setting or on a double boiler.
3.) After 15-30 min. in the fridge, put a little peanut butter in the mold (on top of the chocolate).
4.) Put a little jelly on top of the peanut butter and then top again with more peanut butter.
- Then you have jelly encased with peanut butter. :)
5.) Melt some chocolate and then put a thin layer on top of the peanut butter.
6.) Put back in the fridge to set for 15-30 min.
7.) In the meantime, bake your cookies at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
8.) Then put them both together!
