1 c powdered sugar
1 c peanut butter (creamy)


How to Make Brownie Cookies with Peanut Butter Surprise


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