without some modifications this recipe is only about a 3, but I knew it had potential!! DEFINITELY MAKE THESE they are soooo yummy IF you make the following minor changes: 1) add 2 more TBSP of cocoa powder 2) substitute 1/4 c of melted semi sweet chocolate for the 1/4 c of peanut butter that goes into the cookie dough 3) lessen the flour slightly (I used 1 1/4 cup + 2 TBSP) 4) add a pinch of salt to the dough, and 1/8 tsp of salt to the peanut butter middle (REALLY enhances the flavor of both the choc & pb...brings the recipe from a 5 in flavor to a 10!!) 5) Lastly, make the peanut butter middle batter FIRST, portion out into balls using a round bottom tsp, place on a plate and (as suggested by several other bakers) FREEZE while you make the choco cookie dough - by the time you're done w/the dough your pb balls with be firm enough to stuff into the middle of it. THEN, dip a round bottom TBSP into flour, msr out a ball of choco dough, then, as other reviewers helpfully suggested, flatten the ball in your hand, put the pb ball into the middle, and simply fold the edges up and roll like you would a meatball. EZ!! ...IF you do it this way...if not you're going to be frustrated beyond belief! Thanks for posting Stephanie - i'll be making this one for years to come :)
