More than one way to enjoy Fudge Cookies
This recipe for a peanut butter cookie is amazing in itself, but add the chocolate fudge center and it is over-the-top good. If you want to try some variations you can try substituting the chocolate fudge center for some different fillings like frosting in the center or a chewy caramel. We have also added chocolate candy in the center, like little peanut butter cups or Rolos.
