    These cookies look good, and I followed the recipe and used a heaping tablespoon top and bottom with the PB in the center but it only made a dozen cookies. Not three and a half dozen! But they are Huge cookies. I baked them 15 min and just took them out of the oven. I hope that it was long enough and they are completely baked. I don't know how to tell. I don't eat cookies but am baking them for hubby. He loved the MS chocolate chip cookies I made recently, so hoping these are a hit too.

    As everyone says: delicious. Made them with my 10 y.o. son and he's in heaven. 'Those cookies are too good for this world!" Almost more like brownies? We made them a bit too big, but overall they live up to the hype.

    I love chocolate & peanut butter so I had to make this recipe. It is one of the best cookies I've ever had. They're dangerous b/c you can't stop eating them and the recipe makes so many. Absolutely amazing. My family made ice cream sandwiches with them too. Definitely making these again and again and again.

    I used these cookies to make ice cream sandwiches for a dinner party. They were a fun, nostalgic and not to mention utterly decadent hit!

    These turned out very well. I did not have Dutch Cocoa, only Ghiradelli, and did not have shortening so I used another stick of butter. The cookies may have been a bit moister I'm guessing with shortening, but were still great. I also used organic creamy peanut butter. Will make these often, loved them!

    I have made these cookies everything Thanksgiving and Christmas for last 4 years. People are obsessed with them and heaven forbid that I ever decide NOT to make them, I might be facing an angry mob. I use the mini chocolate chips because it is easier to make the wells for the peanut butter filling. My in-laws think I am some kind of culinary expert and they are not that difficult to make. Viva la Chocolate Peanut Butter Surprises!

    I use a cookie scoop and make an indent, insert the peanut butter and roll the cookie in my hands - perfect little balls and hidden peanut butter - also roll them in sugar before baking .

    Hi everyone! I must say I LOOOOVE these cookies-they have NEVER failed to please the people I've made them for-I've made them many times over now.. I always use the Ghiradelli chocolate chips-wish I could use their cocoa but it wasn't Dutch. :( My biggest challenge is being able to perfectly hide the peanut butter within the cookies. But these are completely yummy--you won't go wrong with it--- I give them five stars!!
