Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Graham Cookies

Not even joking. These chocolate dipped peanut butter graham cookies are amazing!!

During the summer I gravitate towards ice cream and anything that requires the words “no bake” or “grill.” Who wants to heat up the house the rest of the night for a cookie?

Turn on the oven now.

During the summer I do most of my cooking in the morning when it’s cooler. Desserts like cookies and prepping meats (like a week worth of cooked chicken to go in recipes) is done once a week to once every other week. It saves me time and helps the air conditioning bill. It also allows me to stay cool. Once I’ve cooked our meat I will cut and cube the chicken or mix in taco seasoning and place it in freezer safe bags for storing ¬†until I need it. peanut butter graham cookies

These cookies had every intention of having us just eat a few and save the rest in the freezer. That didn’t happen. They got devoured. I honestly think that can be a good thing. It means that you get the recipe.
