Peanut Butter Surprise Chocolate Fudge Pudding Cookies

ANNOUCEMENT :) My Pink Kitchenaid Mixer has arrived! It was even more beautiful than I imagined :) It was totally love at first box opening. OMG! I also was lucky enough to get an ice cream attachment for it! I cannot wait to make ice cream! I of course took a million pictures! Lets share in the excitement together shall we?
Why hello there...
I got the ice cream attachment to go with it :)
Im in heaven....
Well since it came yesterday, I was just dying to bake something- something that required a lot of mixing ;) And of course it had to be chocolate! It was perfect timing because this weekend, the hubster and I will be heading to Louisiana (St. Martinville Parish to be exact). My husband is from Louisiana and so we are going back for a family visit. Its my grandfather-in-law's 80th Birthday! How amazing is that! My mother always taught me that when you go to someone's house for dinner or to visit, that you bring some sort of dessert or a bottle of wine (though nor me or my mother drink alcohol, so that one never works). Well I decided to make two different things, one being Peanut Butter Surprise Chocolate Fudge Pudding Cookies. Though Im a bit nervous because the hubster has a family of extremely talented cooks and bakers, so Im not sure how my food will hold up but lets hope that its the the thought that counts (which it is because my in-laws are so sweet).

Also this was a happy middle to the hubby's comment of being chocolated out and my inability to grasp that concept. He loves peanut butter and I love chocolate- and that is how I found these cookies.Again, be forewarned about my attempt to learn to photograph food.

Peanut Butter Stuffing
These cookies actually took a long time to make. Not so much the dough or the filling but "putting" the cookies together. But it was really fun to make and quite frankly they look delicious and from what my husband said- they taste as good as it looks. He said the chocolate cookie taste a bit like oreos- that was his two cents to add to this recipe ;)

Adapted from Hardly Wives

Preheat Oven 375F degrees

1-1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. cocoa powder
1 (3.9 oz) package of fudge pudding
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. butter, softened  
1/2 c. sugar (and extra for garnishing)
3/4 c. brown sugar, packed
1/4 c. peanut butter  
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c. chocolate chips

1 c. powdered sugar
3/4 c. peanut butter

Cream together butter, sugars, and peanut butter until creamy. Then add egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix together dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, pudding mix, baking soda). Then slowly mix in dry ingredients. For filling mix together powdered sugar and peanut butter. Roll the cookie dough into slightly smaller than 1.5 inch round balls and make the peanut butter filling half the size. To fill the cookie, take the cookie dough and push your thumb into the center and make a "bowl" out of the cookie dough. Place the peanut butter ball into the middle and close up the bowl and round out the cookie. Roll the cookie in sugar. Place on baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes.
