  1. PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. COMBINE flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in small bowl. Melt 1 cup morsels in a small, heavy-duty saucepan over low heat; stir until smooth. Beat granulated sugar, 1/3 cup peanut butter, butter and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in melted chocolate. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in cocoa mixture. Stir in remaining morsels. Cover; refrigerate just until firm.
  3. SHAPE into 1 1/2-inch balls; press thumb into tops to make about 1/2-inch-deep depressions. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Fill each depression with about 1/2 teaspoon peanut butter.
  4. BAKE for 10 to 15 minutes or until sides are set but centers are still slightly soft. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Made as written, using creamy peanut butter and topped with Reeses Pieces because I had them. THey are tasty! Quite a hit with a few who have tried them. I mailed most of them, so we'll see how they travel in 2-3 days... will update later!

Loved these! I doubled the recipe and used part semi-sweet (for melting), part milk-chocolate (for mixing into the dough). Yes, I used a LOT of chocolate chips today! They were pretty easy to make. I ran out of peanut butter as I was filling the thumbprints, so I used some Halloween M&M's in some, and in the rest, I used leftover white chocolate ganache. For the ganache-filled ones, I waited until they were completely cool to fill. (I made an indentation with a wooden spoon for those ones). I liked the pb filled ones best though. Will make again!

The cookie base itself is pretty tastey but once you add the peanut butter in the thumbprint fashion, it was too rich for me.

These were OK, but a little harder than I like - I'm a chewy/cakey cookie fan. However, the combination of chocolate and peanut butter was delicious.
