Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies Stuffed with Peanut Butter (original from Lovin in the Oven)
1c creamy peanut butter
2 sticks butter, room temp
3/4c brown sugar
1 3/4c flour
1t baking soda
2c semi-sweet chocolate chips
1c cocoa (Hershey's special dark)
Beat together all ingredients until smooth
Preheat to 350F. Beat butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla, beat until smooth. Mix in the flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder intil just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
I flattened a tablespoon of cookie dough on a baking sheet. Then placed a rounded tablespoon of the peanut butter mixture on top. Finally, placed a large cookie scoop of dough on top and pressed the seam so no peanut butter was showing.
Bake ~15 minutes. If you are not adding the peanut butter stuffing then bake ~10 minutes. Cool completely.
Note* you can always swap out some of the semi-sweet chocolate chips with other chips or nuts/ dried fruit for a different taste!
