Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Thumbprints

Wanna make a batch of cookies guaranteed to earn a "thumbs up"? Our Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Thumbprints are the cookie recipe to do it!

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup chunky or smooth peanut butter, divided (see Note)
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs

What to Do

  1. In a small bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt 1 cup chocolate chips over low heat, stirring until smooth. In a large bowl, cream the sugar, 1/3 cup peanut butter, the butter, and vanilla. Beat in the melted chocolate. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in the flour mixture then stir in the remaining chocolate chips. Cover and chill just until firm.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.
  4. Shape chilled dough into 1-1/2-inch balls then press your thumb into the tops to make 1/2"-deep depressions. Place on ungreased baking sheets and fill each depression with about 1/2 teaspoon peanut butter.
  5. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until sides are set but centers are still slightly soft. Cool 2 minutes then remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes about 3-1/2 dozen cookies.

This is not a diabetic friendly recipe with sugar in it! Please give us recipes that are for us!

You are correct, this is not a diabetic-friendly recipe. If we claimed anywhere that it was, please let us know. If you are looking for recipes that are diabetic friendly, please visit our other site, You can also click on Diabetic Recipes in the tab on the top of this page. Thank you!

VRGA... why are you looking at candy recipes if you are diabetic ??? at the top of page it says diabetic recipes and that is where you should be looking not complaining about candy recipes you can not eat

It's really not fair to rate it with one star when you haven't even made it, or because it's not rated as diabetic. Which it never stated anywhere in the recipe that it was. Rating is really for those who have prepared it and tasted it, not for judging it without ever trying it.
