Peanut butter and chocolate come together in this delicious dessert made with Pillsbury® cookies - perfect for Christmas.

Ingredients

1
roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated chocolate chip cookies
1/4
cup all-purpose flour

cup peanut butter chips
1/2
cup dry-roasted peanuts, finely chopped
1
cup chocolate creamy ready-to-spread frosting (from 1-lb container)

unwrapped mini chocolate-covered peanut butter cup candies

Steps
