  1. PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. COMBINE flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in small bowl. Melt 1 cup morsels in a small, heavy-duty saucepan over low heat; stir until smooth. Beat granulated sugar, 1/3 cup peanut butter, butter and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in melted chocolate. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in cocoa mixture. Stir in remaining morsels. Cover; refrigerate just until firm.
  3. SHAPE into 1 1/2-inch balls; press thumb into tops to make about 1/2-inch-deep depressions. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Fill each depression with about 1/2 teaspoon peanut butter.
  4. BAKE for 10 to 15 minutes or until sides are set but centers are still slightly soft. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

The cookie base itself is pretty tastey but once you add the peanut butter in the thumbprint fashion, it was too rich for me.

These were OK, but a little harder than I like - I'm a chewy/cakey cookie fan. However, the combination of chocolate and peanut butter was delicious.
