– creamy peanut butter – powdered sugar – unsalted butter, softened – light brown sugar – granulated sugar – egg – vanilla extract – all-purpose flour – unsweetened cocoa powder – salt – milk – chocolate chips
Preheat the oven
Preheat the oven to 350ºF and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Make the Peanut Butter Filling
Combine the first two ingredients (creamy peanut butter. and powdered sugar) until smooth. Set aside.
Make the cookie dough and scoop
Slowly mix the dry mixture into the wet ingredients until a soft dough forms. Using a #40 cookie scoop (approx 1.6 tablespoons) scoop the cookie dough and roll into balls.
Fill with peanut butter
Flatten the dough out into a circle and place a teaspoon worth of peanut butter filling in the center of the flattened dough. Fold the dough up around the cookie, pinching the seams closed. If needed, add a little extra dough to close up the seams.
Bake and top with chocolate
Bake the cookie sheets in batches for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool for ten minutes before adding the chocolate topping.
