Preparation

Step 1

For the centers, mix the peanut butter and sugar together (you may need to use your hands). Form into approximately 30 balls and flash freeze on a baking sheet.

While they're chilling, make the cookie dough:
Beat the butter, sugars and peanut butter together until mixed.
Add in the vanilla and egg and beat to combine.
Gradually add in the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda until blended.
Remove the peanut butter centers from the freezer, and shape the cookie dough around the ball until completely covered.
Flatten the cookies with a sugar-dipped glass.
Bake on 375 F for 7 to 9 minutes, until tops of cookies just begin to crack.
