Ingredients

  • 1 pouch (17.5 oz.) Betty Crocker™ Cookie Mix Peanut Butter
  • 1 egg (for cookie mix)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened but not melted (for cookie mix)
  • 2 tablespoons Gold Medal™ All-Purpose Flour (for cookie mix)
  • 1 package (12 oz.) dark chocolate candy coating wafers
  • 48 peanut butter chips
  • 24 mini peanut butter cups
  • 1 pouch (7 oz.) of Betty Crocker™ Decorating Cookie Icing White
  • Yellow confetti sprinkles
  • Black confetti sprinkles

Steps

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare cookie dough according to package instructions.
  • 2
    Add 2 tablespoons of flour to batter while mixing so cookies will hold a domed shape.
  • 3
    Roll 2 tablespoons of dough into balls but do not flatten. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 7-9 minutes. Let cool completely.
  • 4
    Reserve 24 chocolate candy coating wafers. Melt remaining wafers according to package instructions. Using one of the reserved wafers, squeeze a small amount of white cookie icing in the middle of the wafer.
  • 5
    Place a mini peanut butter cup upside down in the middle of the icing until it spreads and forms a ring around the bottom of the peanut butter cup.
  • 6
    Place 1 yellow confetti sprinkle on the white rim.
  • 7
    Using a toothpick dipped in the melted candy coating, place 2 dots on the cookie for eyes and attach a black confetti sprinkle for the nose. Secure peanut butter cup hat onto the top of the cookie with the melted candy coating.
  • 8
    Attach the 2 peanut butter chips for ears to the top of the cookie.

More About This Recipe

  • After the turkey this year, it’s Thanksgiving Cat Cookies for dessert! Hands down, the cookie I am most thankful for is peanut butter. Peanut butter cookies are my all-time favorite comfort food. You’d think it would be chocolate, but no. Fact: When I was little, I would ask my mom to make peanut butter cookies for me for my birthday instead of cake! But these adorable cookies do contain chocolate. So I am doubly thankful for these sweet treats! So cute, you might have to start Thanksgiving dinner with dessert this year!
