Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove wrappers from peanut butter filled chocolates.
  2. Beat butter and peanut butter in large bowl until light and fluffy. Add sugar, corn syrup, egg and vanilla; blend well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; add to peanut butter mixture, blending well.
  3. Heat oven to 350°F Shape dough into 30 (about 1-1/4 inch) balls. Press peanut butter filled chocolate piece into each ball; covering completely with dough. Reshape into balls; roll in granulated sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown around edges. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
  5. Set aside 30 peanut butter filled chocolates. Place remaining chocolates in heavy-duty resealable plastic food storage bag. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) 1 minute; knead. If necessary, microwave at MEDIUM an additional 15 seconds at a time, kneading after each heating, just until chocolates are melted and mixture is smooth. Cut small piece from corner of bag; drizzle melted chocolate over cookies. Before drizzle sets, place peanut butter filled chocolate in center of each cookie. Allow drizzle to harden.
