Easy to make peanut butter cup cookies with delicious peanut butter buttercream frosting!
I like to have some sort of after school snack for my kids. Some days it’s popcorn, other days it’s cheese crackers and sometimes it’s a sweet treat. They are often my taste testers. My kids and two of their cousins walk to my parent’s house after school. I meet them there, give them rides home and share my desserts.
Earlier this week, I realized that it was almost time to go get the kids. I looked in my cupboards to see if there was anything I could bring them for a snack, but realized that most of the snacks had already been taken in school lunches.
So, I looked in my freezer and found a container of frozen peanut butter cup cookies! Bingo! I just needed a topping for the cookies so I quickly whipped up some peanut butter buttercream. I sprinkled them with some mini chocolate chips to make them look cute and headed out the door.

My daughter asked can I just eat the frosting? It is sooo good! The mini chocolate cups are cute and I love the hidden peanut butter cups inside.
