  • 16 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 10 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening


  • Preheat the oven to 350 ˚F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a double boiler, melt the the chocolate and butter until smooth.  Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, vanilla, and sugar in a medium bowl.
  • Slowly add the melted chocolate to the eggs, stirring the whole time until well incorporated.
  • Sift in the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Stir until completely mixed in.
  • Use a 1-tablespoon scoop to portion the dough on the parchment-lined cookie sheet.  The cookies do not spread much, so the dough can be fairly close together.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until just set.  Let sit on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
  • While the cookies are baking, mix together the peanut butter and powdered sugar until well combined.  Roll into small balls.
  • As soon as the cookies come out of the oven, while they are resting on the cookie sheet, smush a ball of peanut butter in the center of each cookie.
  • Once cookies are cooled completely, melt the semisweet chocolate chips and shortening together in a double boiler until smooth.
  • Dip the top of each cookie in the chocolate and let harden on a rack before packaging.
