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.
