How to Make Brownie Cookies with Peanut Butter Surprise


  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 : )
