Gluten Free Magic Peanut Butter Middles

I know it’s not right to pick favorites. Each one should be loved for it’s different, individual qualities, right? But, I can’t help it. These cookies, with their creamy peanut buttery middle and yummy chocolate cookie coat are definitely my favorite cookies this week. Next week? Well, it might be something else. But for today, definitely these. :)

I love how these cookies look a little fancy, but are super simple to make. They really are like magic, the shape that they take, and the way the peanut butter is nicely in the middle It reminds me of the mystery around how the caramel gets inside the Caramilk bar. But, this mystery is easily solved. Just follow these directions, and you’ll be set.

      Haha, that’s funny, Tamara. You don’t have to share. Just put them in the freezer and take out whenever you want a nice little PB & chocolate treat. :)

    These are yummy! Mine came out a little bit dry but it was my fault, I thought the chocolate batter looked too loose to roll around the peanut butter middles. Should have left it as is in the recipe. Super tasty though, I’m sure they will be a hit! Thanks for another great recipe!

    Wow Jeanine, these look like my personal dream cookie. I was definitely a peanut butter cup girl, so this recipe reminds me of my favorite childhood flavors. Great idea!
