Ingredients

1
pouch Betty Crocker™ peanut butter cookie mix
3
tablespoons butter, melted
1
egg
4
to 5 tablespoons milk
1
cup hazelnut spread with cocoa
1
cup powdered sugar
1/2
cup chopped peanuts
  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir together cookie mix, melted butter, egg and 1 tablespoon of the milk; set aside.
  • 2 In small bowl, mix hazelnut spread and powdered sugar until well blended. Roll half of hazelnut mixture into 5 balls, using about 1 tablespoon mixture per ball.
  • 3 For each cookie, press 1/4 cup cookie dough with hands until flat; make small well in center of dough. Place hazelnut ball in well. Seal cookie dough around hazelnut ball, sealing mixture completely inside. Place on ungreased large cookie sheet.
  • 4 Bake 11 to 13 minutes or just until edges of cookies are golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
  • 5 Into remaining half of hazelnut mixture, stir enough remaining milk until thin icing forms. Drizzle icing over top of cooled cookies; sprinkle with chopped peanuts. Let icing set before serving.
