This recipe comes from my Kroger Magazine. I tweaked it some and changed the name because the new name fits it better. These cookies ARE rapturous! Not overly sweet, just sweet enough. And they were fun to make--the kids will love helping! Preparation is a bit time consuming but well worth it. You have to try these!

How to Make CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER RAPTURE

Step-by-Step

  1. In a medium bowl stir together flours, cocoa powder and baking soda; set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and 1/4 cup peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar; beat until combined. Beat in egg, vanilla and milk. Beat in as much of the flour mixture as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour mixture with a spoon.
  3. Shape into 32 balls (approximately 1-1/4-inch each); set aside.
  4. For filling, in a medium bowl, combine powdered sugar and the 1/2 cup peanut butter until smooth. Shape into 32 balls (approximately 3/4-inch each).
  5. For each cookie, slightly flatten a chocolate ball and top with a peanut butter ball. Shape chocolate dough completely around filling; roll into a ball. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Lightly flatten with bottom of a glass dipped in granulated sugar.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350º oven for about 8 minutes or just until set and slightly cracked on top. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer to a wire rack; cool. Store any leftovers in an airtight container.
