Get the kids in the kitchen and bake up a batch of butter cookies with peanut butter candies, marshmallows and chocolate drizzle.
When I was a little girl, my mom would take us out to lunch on half-days from school. We would go to our favorite restaurant, and if we were good, we could order a sundae from the dessert menu. My favorite sundae was made with vanilla ice cream, peanut butter, marshmallow, chocolate sauce and a generous sprinkle of peanut butter candies. It was a rare treat, but one that I could never get enough of.
Now that I am a grown up, I still love this flavor combination, so I decided to make a cookie inspired by my favorite childhood treat.
I started with a pouch of Betty Crocker® peanut butter cookie mix and made it according to the package directions.
I added candy coated peanut butter pieces.
I used a large ice cream scoop to portion the cookies and placed them on an ungreased cookie sheet. I got 16 cookies out of one pouch.
Use a fork to flatten and add a crisscross pattern.
Bake for 9 minutes, or until they are almost ready to come out of the oven.
Press mini marshmallows into the cookies and put back into the oven for 2 to 3 minutes more.
Cool completely on a cooling rack.
Make the chocolate drizzle and drizzle over the cookies.
