You know when you have that craving, you want something chocolaty? My sister and I had that craving one evening and decided to try out a recipe we had found on pinterest: Double Chocolate Truffle Cookies Stuffed with Peanut Butter. The result: yummy cookies that disappeared quickly. How yummy were they? We’ve made them three times so far.
To make them yourselves find the recipe here.
Notes on this Recipe:
Ours did not turn out nearly as pretty and were eaten so fast I never got a chance to take a picture. Don’t be discouraged if your cookies don’t come out pretty, they taste good anyway.
Each recipe made around 27 cookies.
Make sure you freeze the dough for at least 20 minutes as the recipe says, personally I would freeze it much longer. When you start scooping out the dough and then have to flatten it with your hands the dough will start to “melt”. The longer you freeze it, the slower it will “melt”. In order to minimize the mess we used a cookie scoop to scoop out the dough and a 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon to scoop out the peanut butter filling. In order to prevent the dough from sticking to your hands you will also have to spray your hands multiple times.
The amount of peanut butter filling this recipe makes is way too much. We ended up using one recipe of the peanut butter filling for three batches of cookie dough. I’m not sure how to fix this problem, except to make three batches of cookies (good excuse to make so many cookies though!).
The cookies took much longer to cook than the recipe says. The recipe says 9-10 minutes but some of ours took more like 15 minutes. It will depend on your oven so cook them for 9 minutes then check every couple minutes after that until they’re done.
I hope you enjoy making these!
