I've been experimenting with cookies lately, trying to discovery new favourites. These definitely make the cut! With a double layer of chocolate and peanut butter cookie dough, these chocolate cookies contain a sweet surprise that will make a fantastic lunch box treat.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 24


To make the outer chocolate dough:
180g butter
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 1/2 cup plain flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder

To make the inner peanut butter dough:
1/4 cup plain
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 egg

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and line a baking tray.

To make the chocolate biscuit dough:

Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl using a wooden spoon. Add the egg and vanilla essence and stir well to combine. Add the flour and cocoa and fold through to form dough.

To make the peanut butter biscuit dough:

Place the flour, peanut butter, sugar and egg in a mixing bowl and stir well to completely combine all the ingredients into a dough.

Coat your hands in flour to prevent sticking. Take half teaspoonfuls worth of peanut butter dough and roll each into a small ball until all of the dough has been rolled. Place the completed rolled peanut balls onto a plate and set aside.

Take 1-2 teaspoons worth of chocolate biscuit dough and roll it into a ball. Place the rolled ball onto a lightly floured cutting board or bench top and use the heel of your hand to flatten the ball into a disc shape.

Take one of the peanut butter balls and place it in the centre of the chocolate disc.

Lift the chocolate disc edges up around the peanut butter ball until the chocolate covers the peanut centre.

Roll the peanut filled chocolate dough ball over again in your hands to complete its round ball shape.

Place the ball onto a baking tray and gently flatten it with your hand. The biscuits don't spread that much, so the shape that they go into the oven with is just about the shape that they end up as.

Repeat the disc making and filling with the remaining chocolate dough.

Any leftover dough balls can be flattened and made into peanut butter cookies.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through.

Allow the biscuits to stand for 5 minutes on their baking trays, then allow them to cool on a wire rack.
