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
1/2
cup peanut butter chips
1/2
cup dry-roasted peanuts, finely chopped
1
cup chocolate creamy ready-to-spread frosting (from 1-lb container)
20
unwrapped mini chocolate-covered peanut butter cup candies

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 350ºF. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Knead in flour and chips until well blended.
  • 2 Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in peanuts to coat completely, pressing gently. On ungreased cookie sheet, place balls 2 inches apart. With thumb or end of wooden spoon handle, make indentation in center of each cookie, but do not press all the way to cookie sheet.
  • 3 Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until edges are set. Cool 5 minutes. Remake indentations. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 20 minutes.
  • 4 Place frosting in small resealable food-storage plastic bag. Cut off tiny corner of bag. Squeeze about 2 teaspoons frosting in center of each cookie to fill indentation. Place 1 peanut butter cup candy in middle of frosting-filled center.
