How to make

  1. STEP 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. Add flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate 1-2 hours or until firm.

  5. STEP 5

    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.

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.
