The Monster Cookie
I had a reoccurring dream about this cookie (recipe and all). I hope you enjoy them!
Peanut Butter Stuffed Monster Cookies (makes about 9 large cookies)
1/2 cup Butter (I used vegan)
1/2 cup White Sugar
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1 cup All Purpose Flour
2/3 cup Black Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 cup Almond Milk (more if dough is too dry)
⅓ Cup Peanut Butter
⅔ Cup Powdered Sugar
A bag of M&Ms (M&Ms are not dairy free so this is not a 100% vegan cookie)
Mix. Assemble. Bake.
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
Cream together the butter and sugars (brown and white). Mix in vanilla
Sift the flour and cocoa powder into a mixing bowl and mix in the baking soda and salt.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet. Slowly add almond milk to form a thicker dough. Add more if the dough is too dry.
In a small bowl, mix the peanut butter and powdered sugar together to create the peanut butter dough for the middle
Scoop out 1.5 tbsp of chocolate dough and flatten it to resemble a disk
Scoop about 1 tbsp of the peanut butter dough. Roll it into ball and slightly flatten while placing it on the chocolate dough disk
Cover the peanut butter dough with another chocolate dough disk creating a sandwich. Press the chocolate dough edges together tightly and smooth out.
Cover the cookie with M&Ms
These will spread so provide ample space for the cookies. There were 6 at the most on the tray.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. The edges will be firm but the cookies will still be soft in the middle. This is fine, they will firm up as they cool.
Place baked cookies on a cooling rack and enjoy!
