Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Treats #recipes

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cookie Treats
These are very involved, messy, and I usually get powdered sugar everywhere. But I love it and people ask for it every year. It tastes like a resees cookie.
Prep Time: 50 Mins
Total Time: 1 Hr 25 Min
Makes: 3 dozen cookies

1 pouch (1lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix
3 tablesspoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon water
1 egg

1 cup semisweet chocolate chip (6oz)
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup peanut butter (try the honey roasted kind)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 to 2 cups powdered sugar

I usually always end up using a little more chocolate chips and powdered sugar then the recipe calls for.

Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, oil, water and egg until soft dough forms.
Shape dough into 1-inch balls. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls 2 inches apart.
Bake 8 to 9 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
In small microwaveable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, butter and peanut butter uncovered on High 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds; stir until smooth. Stir in vanilla.
Place 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar in 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag; set aside. Place 12 cooled cookies in large bowl. Pour 1/3 of chocolate mixture over cookies in bowl. Using rubber spatula, toss cookies gently to coat. Place cookies in bag with powdered sugar; seal bag. Gently turn bag to coat cookies. Remove cookies from bag to cooling rack to set. Repeat with 12 more cookies and 1/2 of remaining chocolate mixture; repeat again until all cookies are coated, adding additional powdered sugar to bag as needed.
