Directions

  1. Combine butter, 1/2 cup sugar and brown sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking soda and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
  2. Remove half of dough; set aside. Add peanut butter to remaining dough in bowl. Continue beating until well mixed. Remove peanut butter dough from bowl; wrap in plastic food wrap. Place reserved half of dough into bowl; add melted chocolate. Continue beating until well mixed. Wrap chocolate dough in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate both doughs 2 hours or until firm.
  3. Heat oven to 375°F.
  4. Place 1/2 cup sugar in bowl; set aside.
  5. Press about 1/2 teaspoon of each dough together to create marbled effect; roll into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set and cookies just begin to crack.
  6. Press 1 chocolate star in center of each cookie immediately. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling racks. Cool completely.

Recipe Tips

Chocolate candies will melt after pressing onto hot cookies. To cool chocolate quickly, refrigerate cookies about 20 minutes until chocolate is firm.

I AND OTHER'S I SHARED WITH, FOUND THE CHOC. TOO BITTER. IF I TRIED THEM AGAIN, I WOULD USE SEMI-SWEET. CAN'T REALY TASTE THE PEANUT BUTTER. ONE OF MY FRIEND'S SAID THEY WERE MISSING SOMETHING. WE WERE NOT TOO IMPRESSED WITH THIS RECIPE.
