Peanut Butter Brownie Cookie Recipe

Have you ever tried to make bullseyes before? You know the Chocolate balls filled with peanut butter? For me, they often don’t look pretty but now you can have the same amazing flavors of peanut butter and chocolate in this easy to make Peanut Butter Brownie Cookie recipe.

The recipe only makes 24 but they are rich that one should go a long way.


I love that this cookie recipe starts with a brownie mix recipe. This makes the baking process that much quicker since you are not measuring out flour etc. Just be sure and use a decent brownie mix, one that you would enjoy unaltered.

The brownie mix will be quite stiff no worries, you are doing it right. I kept looking at my recipes too.


I found it easiest to use a small ice cream scoop to make the balls of cookie and peanut butter.



It is pretty sticky to flatten them. I just used my fingers.


Now the real treat of the peanut butter brownie cookies, the center filling. I could have just eaten this with a spoon.


These look good enough to eat before I even bake them.



I may have baked them too much because it did not appear the sides were set but they tasted great either way.


Now for the fun part, once again, using store-bought frosting, frost just the peanut butter part of the cookie.



Had to sneak a bite to photograph these of course.
