Servings: 24 cookies
- 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
- 1¼ tsp baking soda
- ¼ cup granulated sugar for rolling cookies
- 2 large milk chocolate bars cut into 1” pieces
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.
