PEANUT BUTTER DARK CHOCOLATE COOKIES
Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Cookies are buttery cookies with peanut butter and chocolate filling: so delectable that you cannot stop eating.
My Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Cookies are a family favorite because they are packed with rich dark chocolate pieces that go perfectly with the saltiness of peanuts.
The cookies are slightly crunchy outside and have a mushy interior due to the chocolate. I prefer to consume mine immediately after they come out of the oven, while the center is still warm and slightly soft.
Of course, you can re-create the freshly baked sensation days later by giving it a little twirl in the microwave.
Here are a few basic strategies you can use to customize this cookie to add some diversity.
Carefully roll each dough ball in granulated sugar before baking. This imparts additional sweetness and crispness. Additionally, you can mix ground cinnamon into the dough to give your cookie an extra special touch.
However, keeping things simple and traditional is the ideal approach. This recipe has a low-calorie count of 167 calories per serving.

1/2 cup (or 90 g) dark brown sugar

1 cup chips or pieces of dark chocolate
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (176 degrees Celsius). Patiently arrange parchment paper on a large baking sheet; set aside.

- Make 1-inch balls and space them at least 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.
