Peanut Butter Munchies

These are brilliant. They are so tasty and they keep very well. I ate the last one this morning (made them four days ago) and it was just as good as it was on Thursday. The outside is nice and chocolatey without being to sweet and the middle stays super creamy. Will definitely be making more for our gift boxes this week.

Peanut Butter Munchies

1 1/2 c flour
1/2 c cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 c softened butter
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 c peanut butter
1 egg
1 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 c powdered sugar
1/2 c peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350. Beat together butter, sugars, and 1/4 c peanut butter until combined. Add egg, milk, and vanilla, beat well. Mix flour, cocoa, and baking soda in a small bowl. Gradually add the dry ingredients. Form dough into 32 balls about 1 1/4" and set aside.

For filling, combine powdered sugar and 1/2 c peanut butter. Break into 32 small balls and match up with cookies. Slightly flatten each ball, and place filling in the middle. Reshape ball around filling.

Place balls on ungreased cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes or until just set.
