Chocolate -Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies

A good friend of mine made these a few months ago, and I about died when I ate them. These are one of the best desserts/cookies I have had. Not only do they taste amazing, they make a lot, and they are not too hard to make. Just try not to think about all the butter in them while you are eating them, it ruins the fun.

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies

1  12-oz. pkg. miniature semisweet chocolate pieces
2  Tbsp. milk
3/4  cup butter, softened
1/4  cup creamy peanut butter
1-1/2  cups granulated sugar
1  tsp. baking soda
1  tsp. baking powder
2  eggs
1/2  cup milk
1  tsp. vanilla
1/2  cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3  cups all-purpose flour
1  recipe Filling 
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Set aside 1/4 cup chocolate pieces to sprinkle on cookies. In microwave-safe bowl combine 1 cup of the chocolate pieces and 2 tablespoons milk. Microwave on 50 percent power (medium) 1 minute or until melted; stir once. Set aside.
