Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these cookies. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Smooth peanut butter
- Icing/powdered sugar
- Plain/all-purpose flour
- Cocoa powder: I love and use Dr. Oetker Fine Dark Cocoa Powder.
- Baking powder
- Baking soda
- Cornflour/cornstarch: Makes for extra soft and thick cookies.
- Unsalted butter: Melted.
- Light brown sugar: Using mostly brown sugar results in extra soft and chewy cookies, as well as a subtle molasses flavour.
- Caster/granulated sugar
- Large egg
- Vanilla extract
- Chocolate chips: For topping. You can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet.
How to make Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Cookies
To make these cookies, simply start by making the peanut butter filling.
In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the peanut butter and icing sugar until completely combined.
Roll the mixture into 0.5oz balls (you’ll end up with about 15 – 16). Keep refrigerated whilst preparing the cookie dough.
Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, cornflour, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter and sugars until combined.
Add the egg and vanilla extract, and mix until combined.
Add the dry ingredients and mix until completely combined.
Roll the dough into 1.5oz balls, and place onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
Flatten each ball and place a peanut butter ball in the centre. Shape the cookie dough around the filling, covering completely, and roll back into a ball.
Bake for 12 – 14 minutes. As soon as the cookies are out of the oven, top with chocolate chips.
Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
