Add in peanut butter, butter, sweetener and vanilla extract. Mix the dough all together, using a sturdy spoon, until fully combined with no visible butter remaining.
Roll dough into balls about 1 tablespoons in size and place on baking sheet about 1-½” apart. Make an indentation with your thumb in the middle. If any cracks appear you can smooth them over with your finger.
Bake for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and using a teaspoon measuring spoon press down into the indentations to re-form the well. Let cool.
Meanwhile, melt chocolate using your desired method. Spoon the melted chocolate into the wells of the cookies. Let chocolate set up before serving.
This dough could also be made in an electric stand mixer, following the same process as mixing it by hand.
If you find the dough difficult to work with, place in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes before rolling cookie dough balls.
Cookie dough can be made up to 3 days ahead. Fully baked cookies can be made up to 2 days ahead and stored at room temperature.
