Try this delicious twist on the classic holiday candy -- a decadent chocolate chunk cookie topped with creamy peanut butter and smooth chocolate ganache. A definite WOW!

Ingredients

1
pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ double chocolate chunk cookie mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg called for on cookie mix package
1/2
cup creamy peanut butter
1/4
cup powdered sugar
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
3/4
cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4
cup heavy whipping cream

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F.
  • 2 In large bowl, stir cookie mix, water, oil and egg until soft dough forms.
  • 3 Drop dough by slightly rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are set. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
  • 4 Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix peanut butter, powdered sugar and vanilla until well blended. Spread about 1 teaspoon mixture on top center of each cooled cookie.
  • 5 In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and cream uncovered on High 30 to 45 seconds; stir until smooth. Spoon generous teaspoonful on each cookie; spread gently over peanut butter layer. Allow chocolate to set until firm, about 1 hour.
Tips  

Buckeye candies are peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate. The name comes from their resemblance to the nut of the buckeye tree.

A trick for making drop cookies all the same size: Use a spring-handled cookie or ice cream scoop.

These cookies freeze well -- store baked cookies in airtight containers with waxed paper in between layers. Bring to room temperature before eating.
