Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwiches

I have a new chocolate cookbook and wanted to share this yummy recipe!

4 oz. best-quality dark chocolate (I use whatever is available at the grocery store)
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup cocoa powder
4 oz. milk chocolate, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (I use choc. chips)

Filling:
2/3 cup peanut butter
6 tablespoons confectioners sugar

Preheat oven to 325 F.
Melt dark chocolate with the butter in a microwave oven or in a bowl over hot water. Leave to cool, then add the sugar, followed by the eggs. Add the flour, baking powder, and cocoa powder. Stir well, then incorporate the milk chocolate pieces.

Take a teaspoon of the mixture and form into ball, place on cookie sheet and press down lightly.
Repeat for the rest of the mixture, leaving 2 inches between the cookies, then bake for 12 - 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Mix together the peanut butter and confectioners sugar. Spread on one cookie, then top with second cookie, lightly pressing them together.

Enjoy these yummy sandwiches!

Oh that looks YUMMMMMMMM~ something I wanted to ask if anyone knows.... what is all-purpose flour??? I see it in recipes all over the place from the US but we don't have it here. We have plain flour and self raising flour and that is it - would it be like plain flour where you have to add something to make it rise? ANYONE?! lol

That looks well nice I will HAVE to take that recipe down for... for when I have an oven haha!!

Hey I was over at your friend Penny's place and thinking "how aspirational" when she labels her comments something to do with "wonderfully creative people" or somesuch similarness... you know but actually you ARE wonderfully creative so that's not aspiration just reality!

carry on bakin'! take care
