 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar (plus more for dipping)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter, divided use
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 375. Whisk together first 4 ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. In a separate bowl beat together sugar, brown sugar, butter and 1/4 cup peanut butter until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg, beating to combine. Stir in dry ingredients, blending well. Set dough aside.

Stir together remaining 3/4 cup peanut butter and powdered sugar until smooth. With floured hands, roll mixture into 26 (1 inch) balls.

Break off about 1 tablespoon of chocolate cookie dough; make and indentation in center with thumb, and press 1 peanut butter ball into indentation. Wrap dough up and over filling, pressing to seal; roll to smooth it out. Repeat for each cookie.

Dip top of each cookie in granulated sugar, and place 2 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Use greased bottom of drinking glass to flatten each cookie to about 1/2 inch thick.

Bake cookies at 375 for 7-9 minutes, or until set. Let cool on a wire rack.
