I decided to try a new recipe over the weekend and woah was it delicious! Too delicious not to share. I initially got the recipe from here but have modified it a little.
They may look tricky but they really are super simple.
Chocolate Cookie Dough
1/2c melted butter
1/4c maple syrup
1/2tsp vanilla essence
1/2tsp baking soda
Peanut Butter Filling
3/4c peanut butter (any style)
2/3c icing sugar
1/4tsp vanilla essence
Heat your oven to 180 degrees.
So in large mixing bowl combine melted butter, sugar, maple syrup, milk and vanilla essence & mix until smooth. Sift in the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt to form a moist mix. (I added a little more flour to mine, just see how it's looking)
Now you make the filling. So in a different bowl beat together the peanut butter, icing sugar, 2Tbsp milk & vanilla essence to form a moist but firm dough. If it's too dry then add in the extra Tbsp of milk. It it's too wet then mix in a little extra icing sugar.
So now the fun part putting them together. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Your peanut butter dough needs to be divided into 24 pieces. If you're super nerdy like me you can weigh the dough and divide it by 24 to get an exact weight but you really don't need to. So take your 24 pieces and roll them into balls & place them on the tray.
Now get your chocolate cookie dough. You'll want 24 pieces of this one as well. Roll each piece in your hand, flatten into a disk and then put a little peanut butter ball in the centre and roll into a ball, putting them back on the tray.
Keep going until you've used all your mixture. Flatten each one slightly with a spoon.
Bake for 10 minutes. Remove them from the oven, let them sit for 5 minutes before putting them on a cooling tray.
Feel free to warm them in the microwave for 10-12 seconds for warm, gooey deliciousness!!
So there you have it, i'm sure they'll become a favourite!
