This Christmas, we’ve wrapped up everyone’s favorite chocolate candy inside soft and chewy peanut butter cookies. It’s our present to fans of this better-together flavor combo, and if that means you, we recommend making a double batch! These cookies are hard to resist—particularly when they’re warm from the oven and still melty at center. And because we just can’t say enough good about these cookies, let us leave you with this final tidbit: They’re actually fun to make—seriously! You roll cookie dough into balls, flatten them, wrap the dough around the chocolate, and reform the cookie ball before rolling it in a sparkling sugar coating. It’s a bit like playing with Play-Doh™, except more delicious, so we recommend enlisting a little helper. MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • A cookie scoop is an easy way to portion out cookie dough into balls of the same size, which is one of the best ways to ensure cookies bake evenly. Cookie scoop sizes are indicated by number, which indicates the number of scoops per quart of dough. For this recipe, we used a #40 scoop, which holds about 2 tablespoons and would amount to 40 scoops per quart of dough. Standard cookie scoops are #70 or about 1 tablespoon and 70 scoops per quart.
  • For best results, bake one cookie sheet at a time on the middle oven rack.
  • Coarse sparkling sugar can be found in the cake decorating section at most grocery stores. Otherwise, granulated sugar makes a good substitute.
