Magic Middle Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I will forever and always be a chocolate chip cookie kind of girl, but every once in a while I like to venture out and make something different... these were definitely tasty, fun to make, and even more fun to eat!

- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg

- 3/4 cup confectioners sugar
- 3/4 cup peanut butter

In a bowl, mix flour, cocoa and baking soda, until well blended.

In a larger bowl, beat sugar, butter and 1/4 cup peanut butter until fluffy. Add vanilla and egg, beat. Stir in the flour mixture until blended. Set aside.

To Make the Filling: Combine confectioner's sugar and 3/4 cup peanut butter, and mix well.

Roll the filling into 25-30 - 1 inch balls*. I used a small cookie scoop to keep things uniform.

For each cookie, flour your hands and shape about 1 Tablespoon** of dough around 1 peanut butter ball, covering completely. I used a cookie scoop for the cookie also.

Once the cookies are "stuffed", roll them in the palm of your hand to make a smooth ball. Then roll them in sugar. Like you would a snicker doodle.

Use the bottom of a glass to flatten the cookies, slightly.

Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees for 7-9 minutes. When the cookies are done they should be set and slightly cracked.
