“You Have My Heart” Peanut Butter Cookies

When I think of Peanut Butter cookies, I think of a big chocolate Hershey’s Kiss in the middle of them.  And I think of Christmas as that’s the only time of year that I’ve ever really made them.  But it doesn’t have to be just a Christmas cookie!  In fact, I saw Dove chocolates in the store that were heart-shaped and it made me think of those cookies!

A simple swap of the Hershey kiss for a Dove heart-shaped chocolate and bam! You have a good Valentine’s Day cookie.  Or a good “You Have My Heart” cookie.  Or a good “I just wanted to make cookies, okay?  I don’t really need a reason to make cookies” kind of cookie.  Whatever situation applies.

Peanut butter and chocolate are such a good combination that it makes sense that these cookies would be perfect for Valentine’s Day.  I mean, they might be one of the best couples out there.  I’m not saying that foods can get married, but if they could…well, I bet chocolate and peanut butter would have the kind of love story that Nicholas Sparks could write about.  So creamy.  So dreamy.  True love!

So make these.  Send a love message to someone!

"You Have My Heart" Peanut Butter Cookies

Say lovely things to lovely people with these peanut butter cookies topped with a Dove heart-shaped chocolate.
Servings 30 cookies


  • 1/2 butter, softened
  • 1 cup peanut butter(chunky or creamy)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 30 Dove chocolates (a little less than 1 bag)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Beat the butter and peanut butter together until well mixed. Add the sugars and beat until smooth.
  • Add the egg and mix well. Add the milk and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix.
  • Roll into balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. You can roll the cookie balls in a bowl of sugar, if desired - but it's optional.
  • Gently flatten the cookies with the back of the fork a couple of times, crossing over each other.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Let cook for a minute or two, then, if using, place the Dove chocolate in the middle of the cookie.
  • Let cool completely so that the chocolate doesn't get smooshed if you're going to put them in a container for later.  If you need the chocolate to set quicker, place in the refrigerator.
