Directions, Reviews, Nutrition
COMBINE flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in small bowl. Melt 1 cup morsels in a small, heavy-duty saucepan over low heat; stir until smooth. Beat sugar, 1/3 cup peanut butter, butter and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in melted chocolate. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in cocoa mixture. Stir in remaining morsels. Cover; refrigerate just until firm.
SHAPE dough into 1 1/2-inch balls; press thumb into tops to make about 1/2-inch-deep depressions. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Fill each depression with about 1/2 teaspoon peanut butter.
BAKE for 10 to 15 minutes or until sides are set but centers are still slightly soft. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Richest cookies ever!
These cookies are awesome! Make sure you have a big glass of milk next to you though, because these are so rich.
Chocolate & Peanut Butter Yummy!!
Made these for the first time for Christmas. Received rave reviews -very easy to make. This one is definitely a keeper.
This could become a Christmas classic. It's great and not difficult.
As a major chocoholic I was very excited to try this one. They were yummy! They would even be good if you skipped the peanut butter in the center. This one's a keeper!
