Chocolate Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies

chewy chocolate stuffed peanut butter cookies recipe

When I started this blog over 9 years ago, I had no idea where it would lead. At the time, I was hoping it would just give me a few leads for weddings and events. I never intended for it to be a business or a place for me to develop my photography skills, meet new people and make friends, but it has. Along the way, I came to know Carrian, writer and creator of Oh Sweet Basil. I have so much respect and admiration for Carrian. She’s a friend I can always count on, yet we’ve never met. The internet is funny that way, isn’t it? Making the world feel so much smaller, and warmer.

A couple years ago Carrian reached out to me for decorating advice for their home. It sparked a friendship and the rest is history. I’m so excited to share a recipe from her and her husband Cade’s cookbook “Our Sweet Basil Kitchen” with you today. Much like Carrian, their book makes you not only feel like friends, but family.

Last week my sister came over and whipped up these delicious chocolate stuffed peanut butter cookies with me. We came to the conclusion that cookies should always be stuffed.

I made a couple adaptations to the recipe and rolled them in brown sugar and sea salt for added texture, because why not? These chocolate stuffed peanut butter cookies are best served out of the oven, but if you’re saving them for later, warm them in the microwave for 20 seconds for blissful bites.

Serves 32     adjust servings


  • 1/2 c butter, softened
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1/2 c brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 c peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, sugars, peanut butter and vanilla until smooth.

Add egg until incorporated. 

In a separate bowl, combine baking soda, baking powder, salt and flour. Incorporate dry ingredients into wet mixture until combined.

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and salt. Roll a large dough ball {I use a medium cookie scoop}, break in half to add a melting wafer and then roll into a ball.

Roll dough ball in brown sugar and salt mixture and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake 8 minutes and serve warm.
