2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 tablespoons vegetable oil


Heat oven to 375°F.  Lightly grease 15x10x1-inch baking pan; set aside.

Combine butter, peanut butter, sugar and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour; beat at low speed just until mixture forms a dough. Stir in 2/3 cup mini chocolate chips.

Spread dough evenly into prepared pan. Bake 12-15 minutes or until set and lightly browned. Immediately cut shortbread crosswise into 6 equal pieces; then cut 10 rows lengthwise. Cool completely. Remove from pan.

Place all coating ingredients in bowl. Microwave 30-60 seconds or until almost melted. Stir until smooth.

Dip 1 end of each cookie into chocolate coating; place onto cooling rack over waxed paper. Let stand 1 hour or until chocolate coating is set.
