Chocolate Peanut Butter Surprise Cookies

Visit Website

1½ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup unsweetened cocoa
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
½ cup granulated sugar (plus more for dipping)
½ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter, divided
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
¾ cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375º. Whisk together first 4 ingredients (flour through salt) in a medium bowl. Set aside.

In a large bowl beat together sugars, butter and ¼ cup of peanut butter until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and egg, beating to combine. Stir in the flour mixture and stir to combine, blending well. Set dough aside.

Stir together the powdered sugar and remaining ¾ cup of peanut butter until smooth.

To put the cookies together, break off a generous tablespoon of chocolate cookie dough, flatten a bit with your hands and then break off a smaller piece of the peanut butter mixture, placing it in the center of the chocolate dough. Wrap the chocolate dough around the peanut butter center, pressing to seal. Roll the cookie to smooth it out. Drop into a bowl of sugar and roll the cookie in the sugar. Place cookies on a silicone lined (or lightly greased) baking sheet 2 inches apart. Using the bottom of a glass, flatten each cookie to about a ½ inch thickness.

Bake at 375º for 7 to 9 minutes, or until set. Let stand on the baking sheet for 2 minutes, then remove to a wire rack.
