Ingredients (printable recipe)
1 box Duncan Hines Milk Chocolate Premium Brownie Mix
1/4 cup butter, softened
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
Peanut Butter Filling
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 Tablespoons heavy cream
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In medium bowl beat brownie mix, softened butter, softened cream cheese and egg by hand or with a mixer.
2. Roll 1 tablespoon of dough into balls and place on a lightly greased or parchment lined cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
3. In a small bowl mix together powdered sugar and peanut butter. Roll into small balls using about a teaspoon. Press peanut butter balls into surface of uncooked brownie cookies and slightly flatten cookie. Bake for about 12 minutes or until edges are set. Do not overbake. Cool on cookies sheets for about 3 minutes and transfer to a wire rack.
4. For easy clean-up, place wax paper or parchment paper under the wire rack before drizzling cookies. Add chocolate chips and cream to a small microwaveable bowl. Use 50% power for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave in additional 30 second intervals until you get the right consistency for drizzling. Be careful not to overheat! Drizzle melted chocolate over cookies. Cool.

|I'm not sure why, but the chocolate cookie dough wasn't the right consistency to roll into balls. It was too sticky. I just dropped it onto the cookie sheet and pressed the rolled peanut butter balls on top.|
|These cookies are ready for some drizzled chocolate!|
Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies have a chocolate brownie bottom and a soft, sweet peanut butter middle. The drizzled chocolate on top adds extra "chocolatey-ness."
These cookies didn't last long. Every cookie was eaten, but to be honest, they didn't blow us away. They were good, but not outstanding. Our average rating was 3 1/2 stars (out of 5). These cookies were easy to make and if you love chocolate and peanut butter together, they are worth a try.
