We’re talking two fudgy chocolate cookies, dotted with peanut butter morsels sandwiched around, smooth and silk whipped peanut butter filling. 

If you want to make this recipe even better, use a natural peanut butter which should just have 2 ingredients – peanuts and salt. It really gives you that strong, peanutty flavor.

The easiest way to check is to read the label. A good peanut butter should be packed full of protein and monounsaturated fats, rich in fiber and potassium. Translation: good for your heart and healthy!

  • When the recipe calls for room temperature butter, make sure it is actually room temperature.
  • Take your butter out an hour or more before you’re ready to start baking.
  • Always use the full amount of salt it calls for in your recipe. The salt balances out the sweetness and brings out the chocolate and peanut butter flavors even more.
  • Baking soda helps with how much your cookie will rise while baking.

  • Use parchment paper so your cookies don’t stick to the baking sheet.

  • Follow the times in the instructions, they’re there for a reason!
  • Even if your cookie doesn’t feel fully baked, it will harden as it cools.
  • Be sure to let them cool completely so they don’t melt the filling!
