peanut munchies

January 19, 2011

Peanut Munchies.

They turned out well – inspite of our old oven. Sometimes I think it has it out for me. Things bake in half the time the recipe says. Sometimes the tops or the bottoms  burn before the inside is cooked.

It takes finesse.

This time I guess I had enough.

Once you gather all of the above ingredients, it’s time to start!

1. In a medium bowl stir together flour, cocoa powder and baking soda; set aside.

2. In a large mixing bowl combine butter, the 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, brown sugar, and 1/4 cup of the peanut butter; beat with mixer until combined. Add egg, milk and vanilla; beat well. Beat in the flour mixture. Shape dough into 32 balls, each about 1 1/4 inches in diameter. Set aside.

3. For filling, in bowl combine powdered sugar and remaining 1/2 cup peanut butter. With mixer beat until smooth; knead by hand if necessary. Shape into 32 balls.

4. Preheat oven to 350F. Flatten a chocolate dough ball; top with peanut butter ball. Shape flattened dough over peanut butter ball, completely covering peanut butter ball; reshape into ball. Repeat with remaining balls.

5. Place balls 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Flatten with bottom of glass dipped in the 2 tablespoons granulated sugar. Bake about 8 minutes. Let stand 1 minute. Transfer to racks; cool.
