Valentine Chocolate Chip Cookies with Peanut Butter Frosting

Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite!  I made some last night to snack on while watching The Bachelor...don't judge...I can't help it.  I've watched every single Bachelor and Bachelorette, even the ones that drove me nuts.  These cookies are the perfect little treat to help console me after seeing all those itty bitty women in teeny tiny bikinis.  And yes, I am jealous!

I wanted to dress these cookies up a bit, and what better way than peanut butter frosting!  Simple and delicious...it's hard to eat just one.

Make a batch of your favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies, but make sure they are big enough to fit your cookie cutters after being baked.  Cut the cooled cookies using your Valentine cookie cutters or a sharp knife.  Pipe on some homemade Peanut Butter Frosting, then decorate with heart shaped Butterfinger candy or Valentine sprinkles.  Oh so good!

Peanut Butter Frosting:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar
3 T milk, as needed

In a large stand mixer, beat butter and peanut butter until combined.  Add the vanilla and powdered sugar.  Mix and add milk as needed.  Mix for 3-5 minutes until thick and fluffy.  Transfer to a piping bag with large tip.  Pipe onto cookies and decorate with Valentine candy or sprinkles.  Enjoy!
