2/3 cup

1 teaspoon
vanilla
2 cups
all-purpose flour
1/2 cup
unsweetened cocoa
1 teaspoon

3 cups
powdered sugar
3 tablespoons
creamy peanut butter

Directions

  1. Combine butter, sugar and brown sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Beat until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate 1-2 hours or until firm.
  2. Heat oven to 350°F. Place candies in small bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Dip balls in candies to coat one side. Place, candy-side up, 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are set. (Do not over bake.) Let stand 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.
  4. Combine powdered sugar, peanut butter and 2 tablespoons butter in small bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often and gradually adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency.
  5. To make sandwich cookies, spread about 2 teaspoons filling onto bottom-side of 1 cookie, top with second cookie, bottom-side down. Repeat with remaining cookies.

These cookies are delicious. I recommend either making them very small or cutting them in half as they are quite filling!

These cookies do not last long in my house! They are so delicious. A little time consuming, but well worth it.
