Chocolate Peanut Butter Stuffed cookies

Fudge Cookie

2 sticks softened butter

1 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 1/2 cups chocolate chips, I used semi-sweet

1 cup cocoa powder

 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Place peanut butter and sugar into a medium bowl, mix to combine then add egg, mixing until well combined. Set aside.
3. In a stand or electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until well combined. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until well combined.
4. Place flour, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Add to wet ingredients along with cocoa powder, and chocolate chips, slowly mixing until just combined. Scoop out some chocolate, flatten it a bit, put a dollop of peanut butter on top, get some more chocolate dough and put on top and surround the peanut butter. The chocolate doesn't have to perfectly surround the peanut butter.  I would highly recommend spraying your hands with some non-stick spray before doing this.

Bake for 14 to 16 minutes, until cooked through. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Serve with milk.
