Peanut Butter Cookie Broomsticks

We had a lot of fun making these cookies before Halloween. Sorry, I'm so late posting them. They would have been super cute to have put in a little celo bag to give away to friends. We made these using my go to Peanut Butter cookie recipe.Peanut Butter Cookie Broomsticks
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
4 tsp. sugar
pretzel rods
chocolate chips (or as my husband put it, if I loved him more I would have used cinnamon chips as he is of the non chocolate eating variety)

Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, combine 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar and margarine; beat until light and fluffy. Add peanut butter, vanilla and egg; blend well.

Add flour, baking soda and salt; mix well. Shape into 1" balls. Place into 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheets..

Dip a fork into the remaining sugar. Press fork into the cookie making it look like bottom of a broom. Bake at 375 degrees for 6-9 minutes or until set and golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet.

Melt your chocolate chips in the microwave or a double-boiler on the stove top. Line a cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper. Place the cookies on the paper. Set the tip of the pretzel rod up against the cookie or just overlapping it. Spoon some of your melted chocolate over the end of the pretzel and edge of the cookie. Place cookie sheet in the fridge or freezer to harden up the chocolate.

Enjoy!
