Serves:

about 24 cookies

Ingredients

1 box fudge brownie mix
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 egg
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips (i use ghirardelli)

PEANUT BUTTER SURPRISE

1 c powdered sugar
1 c peanut butter (creamy)

1 CONTAINER MILK CHOCOLATE FROSTING (YOU CAN ALSO USE FUDGE FROSTING)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In large bowl beat the brownie mix, cream cheese, butter and egg until well blended. This will result in a sticky dough.
2
Fold in chocolate chips
3
Drop by well rounded teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet and smooth around edges of cookies to keep them round.
4
In another bowl mix peanut butter and powdered sugar with a spoon until it forms a ball..
5
Using rounded teaspoonful of dough roll into balls with your hands and lightly press the peanut butter balls into the middle of the brownie balls.
6
Bake in oven preheated to 350 degrees for about 10 to 14 minutes
7
Remove cookies and cool for about 30 minutes
8
Take cookies from the cookie sheets and spread a thin layer of chocolate frosting over the peanut butter centers. (I did this while still slightly warm because i wanted the chocolate to melt.)
9
I topped mine with peanut butter chips : )
