Thanks for sharing!


Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Bowls are not only fun to eat, they’re also fun to make! 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Bowls

Last weekend I was hungry for cookies and ice cream. Since peanut butter is one of my husband’s favorite things I decided to make peanut butter cookies. Then I remembered that a few weeks ago my Mother had given me some super cute stoneware baking bowls. I decided to bake the peanut butter cookies in them. Using pretty bowls and dishes always makes baking more fun!

I whipped up the peanut butter cookie dough then divided it into two baking bowls. Easy Peasy! I baked the cookies until they were nice and golden brown.

In our freezer we had several flavors of gluten free frozen yogurt. I topped the cookies with several scoops of frozen chocolate peanut butter cup yogurt. I then added a generous dollop of whipped topping, some chopped peanut butter cup candies and a drizzle of Hersey’s dark chocolate syrup.

I was pleasantly surprised to see how deliciously appealing these chocolate peanut butter cup cookie bowls turned out. I think it would be fun to set up a “topping station” where people can select their very own favorite ice cream / yogurt and toppings, such as nuts, candies, marshmallows, caramel sauce, sprinkles, etc…. Since you can easily tweak the ingredients to be gluten free and allergy friendly, (for those guest who have a food intolerance or food allergies), this would be a great dessert to serve at any party. No one ever needs to feel “left-out” of the fun.
