This is a fun variation of the peanut butter cookie recipe that was posted recently. I think these were really enjoyable. The kids certainly like them, and the chocolate mustaches they had were adorable. Using the peanut butter cookie recipe, I lined a mini cupcake pan with paper. Next I pulled out about 1 tablespoon of dough, and shaped it into a ball. I pressed into the ball with my finger to create the hole you see. Next, I filled the hole with a homemade chocolate sauce (basically sugar, cocoa, and water). After the holes had chocolate inside, I manipulated the dough with the intention of covering the hole completely. To be honest, I think there was a bit too much chocolate sauce, but at the same time, the ratio in the end was just right. So, without tearing the dough, I covered the hole as best as I could. After doing this once, I saw how near impossible it was, and opted to leave the rest open. Lastly, let these sit in the fridge for a few hours to chill, and that’s it!
This is a super simple way to create a “candy” that people can enjoy. The nice thing is that since there’s no eggs, the raw cookie dough won’t make you sick. Enjoy!
