Well, I am at it again, couldn’t help myself just had to make another stuffed cookie :)  Here I give you my Chocolate Fudge Peanut Butter Cookie Stuffed Cookies!  Yikes that’s a mouthful, wait until you sink your teeth into these big boys.

It’s no secret that I am a chocolate and peanut butter fanatic, so this was a no brainer for me, fun fun fun!

Take a peek and get yourself baking a batch of cookies

Start with the simple peanut butter cookie dough….1 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 egg.  Mix and set aside.

 

Cream the ever so necessary butter and sugars, then add your eggs.

 

Vanilla time!

 

Add those dry ingredients.

 

Cocoa powder.

 

Add chocolate chips, mix and you are ready to start stuffing!

 

Using a small cookie scoop, scoop a ball of dough into your hand.

 

Using a medium cookie scoop, place one scoop of chocolate dough on top.

 

Do the same to the bottom side.

 

Very important….Grease your hands first (I sprayed them with cooking spray) and press the dough in both hands to enclose the peanut butter cookie dough.  Does not have to be perfect as you can see from my picutes.

 

Be prepared to swoon
