1/3
cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1/2
cup butter or margarine, softened
1
egg

1/2

1/2

2
tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
1
teaspoon vanilla
1/4

1/2

  • 4 Place remaining 2 tablespoons chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon peanut butter in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Microwave on High 30 to 60 seconds or until softened; knead to mix. Cut off small tip from one corner of bag. Squeeze bag to drizzle chocolate mixture over each cookie cup. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until set. Store covered in refrigerator.
