Peanut Butter Ball Stuffed Cookies

Peanut butter balls have long been a favorite treat of mine. So soft and peanut buttery! The only way to make them better is to stuff them inside our favorite cookie dough and bake! These cookies are amazing!

For the peanut butter balls

  • ¾ cup peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons butter room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

For the cookies

  • 8 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips


To make the peanut butter balls

  • Add the peanut butter, butter, cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla to a mixing bowl and beat with a mixer on medium speed until well combined.
  • Portion the peanut butter mixture into 12 pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
  • Place in the refrigerator while you make the cookie dough.

For the cookie dough

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Add the melted butter, brown sugar, and white sugar to a mixing bowl and mix together until well combined.
  • Stir in the egg and vanilla until combined.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, and salt and stir to form a dough. 
  • Stir in the chocolate chips. 
  • Portion the cookie dough into 12 pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and then flatten into a disc.
  • Place one peanut butter ball into the center of each piece of cookie dough and fold the sides up around, being careful to fully seal the peanut butter ball in dough.
  • Place the cookie dough on an ungreased baking sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart from each other.
  • Bake for 11 minutes exactly. Cookies will look slightly underdone when you remove from the oven, but will set up as they cool.
  • Cool on the pan for at least 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.



Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
