Ingredients

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • tsp baking soda
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar for rolling cookies
  • 2 large milk chocolate bars cut into 1” pieces

Instructions

  • Using a countertop mixer, cream together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy (~3-4 minutes on medium speed).
  • Add peanut butter; mix until well combined.
  • Add eggs and vanilla extract; mix until well combined.
  • Using a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda. Add dry ingredients to mixer bowl; mix dough just comes together (~1-2 minutes).
  • Place dough in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. (This dough is soft, and refrigerating it makes it easier to scoop/shape.)
  • Form ~1½ Tbsp of dough around one piece of chocolate. Take care to make sure dough is completely sealed or the chocolate will melt out while baking.
  • Roll dough ball in sugar and place on a parchment-lined sheet pan. Repeat using remaining dough and chocolate pieces.
  • Refrigerate cookies for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Bake for 13-16 minutes, or until edges of cookies just begin to turn brown.
  • Remove from oven. Let cookies cool slightly before transferring to a cooling rack.
