Friday football week 15 treats – Peanut butter cookies stuffed with brownie truffles and topped with melted chocolate

Peanut butter cookies stuffed with brownie truffles and topped with melted chocolate

I decided to up my cookie game for this football Friday before Christmas. (Go Bills!) Instead of a traditional peanut blossom (a peanut butter cookie topped with a Hershey kiss), I stuffed a peanut butter cookie with a brownie truffle and topped it with melted chocolate. For the brownie truffles, I smooshed up some brownies I made the other night and mixed in about a half cup of chocolate frosting. You could also use candy or Oreos, or you don’t have to stuff the cookies at all. These use Crisco and it keeps them nice and puffy. Remember to scoop your flour into your measuring cup, and to preheat your oven to 375 degrees for 20 minutes before baking.
