Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups (15 ounces) milk chocolate chips
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted btter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees . Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a medium, microwavable bowl, melt together 2 cups chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons butter on medium power until almost melted, about 1 1/2 minutes; stir just until smooth.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Using an electric mixer, beat together the eggs, granulated sugar and vanilla at high speed until thickened and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Mix in the melted chocolate at medium speed; whisk in the flour mixture. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Refrigerate the dough until firm enough to scoop, but still soft, 10 to 15 minutes.

Onto each prepared pan, drop 12 rounded tablespoons of dough 2 inches apart. Bake, switching and rotating the pans halfway through baking, until the cookies appear bubbly and still soft, about 15 minutes. Let cool completely.

In a medium bowl, beat together the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and the peanut butter. Sift in the confectioners sugar and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; beat until fluffy. On the flat side of each of 8 cookies, spread about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the peanut butter mixture; sandwich with the remaining cookies.
