|Nathan and Hannah help me mix up the cookies|
Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies
3/4 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 box brownie mix
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
1/2 can chocolate frosting (or make your own)
Mix peanut butter and powdered sugar in a bowl with a spoon.
Wrap in plastic wrap and place in fridge. Repeat these steps with the brownie mix, butter, egg, and cream cheese. Allow both sets of dough to chill for about a half hour.
Form chocolate dough into balls about a tablespoon in size and place on a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Form peanut butter dough into teaspoon size balls and press gently into chocolate balls. Flatten dough slightly and bake at 350F for 10-14 minutes.
Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for at least a half hour before removing. This is important, otherwise the middle of the cookie will not be fully cooked and will stick to the pan, leaving you with a cookie-donut.
Frost with a thin layer of chocolate frosting. Let the kids help with this step too, they will love you forever!
