 Peanut Butter Chocolate Lava Cookies are sure to be the favorite of any peanut butter and chocolate lover. 

Do y’all remember those Peanut Butter Cookies that I shared with you earlier this week? Well, I really think you need to go make that dough right about now, because I am about to share with you one way to take them over the tip top! Make them into Peanut Butter Chocolate Lava Cookies.

Oh yes!

If you have an addiction to peanut butter and chocolate like I do, then these need to be in your life immediately.


I actually made them two ways. I made them in my mini muffin pan by place a scoop of cookie dough into the bottom of each of the indentions of the muffin pan. Then, I pressed one square from a mini Hershey bar into the center of the cookie dough.

Next, I topped it with another scoop of cookie dough, making sure to press the dough to completely encase the chocolate in the cookie dough center.


I also made them as large cookies on a baking sheet. These are larger than the mini muffin size cookies and I used two squares of the chocolate bar in the center of the cookie.

Both were amazing, so you can make these anyway that you’d like – just be sure to make them!

Here’s my recipe.
