Can you ever go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate???

Peanut butter and chocolate. Chocolate cookie with a creamy peanut butter filling. Do I need to say anything else? These cookies are SO good! I got the idea from another recipe and tweaked it until they were just the way I liked them. Now, I'm giving them to you...

Chocolate Surprise Cookies

1 ½ C finely-ground, sifted whole wheat flour

½ C cocoa powder

½ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

½ C sugar

¼ C brown sugar

½ C butter (softened)

¼ C smooth peanut butter

¾-1 tsp vanilla extract

1 egg plus 1 egg yolk

Peanut butter filling

2/3 C peanut butter

2/3 C powdered sugar

Mix together flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. Cream sugars and butter together. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. Mix together wet and dry ingredients. Make filling by beating together peanut butter and powdered sugar until smooth. Form 20-¾ in. balls out of filling. Flatten 20 circles of chocolate dough to about 3-4 in. in diameter. Put a peanut butter ball in the middle. Fold chocolate dough around the peanut butter ball. Roll in sugar and place on a greased cookie sheet. Flatten with the back of a cup to about ¼-1/2 in. thick. Bake at 375 degrees for about 8-10 minutes. Makes 20 cookies.
