Chocolate Dunk Protein Cookies

Don't make these if you have problems with self-control around cookies!

2 scoops chocolate protein powder + enough flour to measure 1-3/4 cups
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
4 oz semi-sweet baking chocolate
3/4 c. butter or margarine, softened
1/2 c. firmly packed Splenda brown sugar blend
1/2 c. granulated Splenda
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate morsels

Preheat oven to 375F.

Combine protein powder, flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Coarsely chop the baking chocolate.

Beat the butter and sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture, beating until blended. Dough will be very stiff. Fold in chopped chocolate.

Drop dough by heaping teaspoons 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake cookies 11-12 min. or until lightly browned. Cool 1 min, then remove to wire racks. Allow to cool completely.

Put chocolate morsels in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high 1 min. Stir. If any morsel shapes remain, microwave another 10-20 seconds. Stir.

Dip one half of each cookie into the melted chocolate. Place dipped cookies on waxed paper and let stand until the chocolate is set.
