  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Make cookies as directed on pouch without pressing with fork; cool 2 minutes on cookie sheets; transfer to cooling rack. Cool another 3 minutes, then place 1 peanut butter cup minis in center of each cookie. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 45 minutes.
  • 2

  • 3
    On top of each cookie, pipe frosting around and over peanut butter cup, getting as much height as possible, making cone shape with peak in center. Place cookies in refrigerator while making chocolate coating, about 15 minutes.
  • 4
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips and oil uncovered on High 30 seconds, then 10 to 15 seconds, stirring after each interval, until mixture is smooth.
  • 5
    Dip cone-shaped frosting on each cookie into chocolate coating to coat most of frosting, letting excess chocolate drip off. Sprinkle with sea salt.

Expert Tips

  • If the chocolate coating is too thick, add additional oil a teaspoon at a time, stirring until smooth. Reheat in microwave 10 seconds, stirring until smooth, if needed.
  • For chocolate coating, use milk or dark chocolate chips, if desired.
  • If using a 21-oz pouch Betty Crocker™ peanut butter cookie mix, follow package directions; shape dough into 42 balls. Use 42 Reese's™ peanut butter cup minis (from 8-oz bag). For frosting, use 1/2 cup butter, 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter, 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 1/4 cup milk and 1 3/4 teaspoons vanilla. For chocolate coating, use 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons oil and 3/4 teaspoon sea salt. Add additional teaspoon oil to coating if needed for ease in dipping.
