Chocolate Fudge Peanut Butter Cookie Stuffed Cookies

(Sorry for the oh so wonderful pictures.  My camera battery won't hold a charge so I have to use my phone)
I have a blog that I follow and this lady comes up with the most amazing cookies ever!!!  I wish I could take credit for coming up with this recipe, but I can't.  But I will take credit for whipping these bad boys up and having them turn out so delish!  It's a good thing I went for a 3 mile run this morning because of all the cookie dough I ate....someone had to lick the batters, the bowls, the spoons, and the fingers.

Peanut Butter Cookie Centers
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg

Fudge Cookie
2 sticks softened butter
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips, I used semi-sweet
1 cup cocoa powder

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Place peanut butter and sugar into a medium bowl, mix to combine then add egg, mixing until well combined. Set aside.
3. In a stand or electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until well combined. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until well combined.
4. Place flour, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Add to wet ingredients along with cocoa powder, and chocolate chips, slowly mixing until just combined. Scoop out some chocolate, flatten it a bit, put a dollop of peanut butter on top, get some more chocolate dough and put on top and surround the peanut butter. The chocolate doesn't have to perfectly surround the peanut butter.  I would highly recommend spraying your hands with some non-stick spray before doing this.

 Bake for 14 to 16 minutes, until cooked through. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Serve with milk.

These are soooooooooooooooooooo good!!!!  Now I have to go run another 3 miles to offset the cookies and dough I ate. =)
