Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies

Oh man! These cookies are the bomb! I made them once and they disappeared quickly! In my opinion, chocolate and peanut butter are the world's greatest food combination, so my eyes perk up anytime I see a recipe containing both.

1 (19.5 oz.) box of classic traditional fudge brownie mix
1/4 cup butter, melted
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 (16 oz.) can chocolate fudge frosting

  1. Heat oven to 350F. In a medium bowl, beat brownie mix, melted butter, cream cheese and egg 50 strokes with spoon until well blened (dough will be sticky).
  2. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet to make 24 cookies; smooth edge of each to form round cookie.
  3. In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and peanut butter with spoon until mixture forms a ball. With hands, roll rounded teaspoonfuls of peanut butter mixture into 24 calls. Lightly press 1 ball into center of each ball of dough.
  4. Bake at 350F for 10 to 14 minutes or until edges are set. Cool on cookie sheets at least 30 minutes.
  5. Remove from cookie sheets. Spread thin layer of frosting over peanut butter portion of each cooled cookie.
Makes 24 cookies.
