Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
I need to make a lot of cookies (20+ dozen) for an upcoming fundraiser. Luckily, I found this recipe. It's easy, makes quite a few, and uses up leftover Halloween candy. I suppose you could make the cookie dough from scratch, but the mix makes it so simple!
I taste-tested one for research purposes, and it's delicious! Great peanut flavor with chocolate and caramel!
Chocolate Candy Cookie Cups
from Betty Crocker
1 pouch Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix
water, oil, egg (as called for in mix)
18 miniature Snickers candy bars (you could use any type of chocolate candy)
Heat oven to 375 degrees. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, oil, water, and egg until soft dough forms.
Form dough into 36 1-inch balls; press into ungreased mini muffin cups. Cut each candy bar in half; press one candy bar into center of dough in each cup.
Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges are a light golden brown. Cool completely in pan. Remove from pan and serve.
(Note: the recipe does say to top each cookie with chocolate frosting. I omitted this since it was already sweet enough).
