  • 8 oz bittersweet chocolate chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 oz semisweet chocolate


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Add butter and 8 oz of bittersweet chopped chocolate to a small, microwave-safe bowl and melt in 30 seconds increments, stirring occasionally until smooth. Set aside to slightly cool.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the slightly cooled melted chocolate mixture to the egg mixture and stir to combine.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture and stir until it is well combined. Chill for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • In another medium bowl, mix powdered sugar with peanut butter until fully combined, then roll it into 1 inch balls. Making about 24 balls, arrange them on a cookie tray covered with waxed paper. Set aside.
  • Scoop about 1 1/2 - 2 tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until the cookies look firm on the outside, careful to not overbake!
  • Remove cookies from oven and immediately press lightly the peanut butter balls lightly into the center of each cookie. Cool the cookies for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, after that transfer to onto a cooling rack.
  • Melt the semisweet chocolate in 30 seconds increments using the microwave, and stirring after each round. Spoon melted chocolate over the peanut butter balls.
  • Chill for 10 minutes for the chocolate to settle and serve.
