  • 1/2 C salted butter softened
  • 1/2 C granulated sugar for baking + 1/2 C for rolling in
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 C creamy peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 & 1/2 C all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 bag dark chocolate hearts approx. 36 candies, unwrapped*


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C)
  • In a large bowl, cream together butter, and both sugars
  • Add egg, peanut butter, and vanilla and mix until all ingredients are well blended
  • Stir in the baking powder, baking soda, and flour until a dough forms
  • Using a small cookie scoop, shape dough into 1" balls and roll in additional granulated sugar. Place coated dough balls on an ungreased cookie sheet, spacing them about 2" apart
  • Bake 10-12 minutes (until edges are slightly golden). Once removed from the oven, immediately press 1 chocolate heart gently into the center of each cookie. Remove to a cooling rack and allow to cool for at least 5-10 minutes. Store completely cooled cookies in an air-tight container


*I like to use Dove dark chocolate hearts for these. Milk chocolate hearts are also wonderful if you prefer that type of chocolate!
*These are one of those cookies that you really do need to allow to cool for a little bit before you dive in. As the cookies cool, they harden up a little bit which makes them easier to handle (if you pick them up when they're too warm, they tend to crumble).
