Puppy Chow Cookies


1 Betty Crocker peanut butter cookie mix

3 T. vegetable oil

1 T. water

1 egg


1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup peanut butter

1 t. vanilla

1 1/2 to 2 cups powdered sugar

  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, stirl cookie mix, oil, water, and egg until soft dough forms.
  2. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. On ungreased cookie sheets, place balls 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake 8-9 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets and place on cooling racks. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  4. In a small microwaveable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, butter, and peanut butter uncovered on high 1 - 1.5 minutes; stir until smooth. Stir in vanilla.
  5. Place 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar in 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag; set aside. Place 12 cooled cookies in large bowl. Pour 1/3 of chocolate mixture over cookies in bowl. Using rubber spatula, toss cookies gently to coat. Place cookies in bag with powdered sugar; seal bag. Gently turn bag to coat cookies. Remove cookies from bag to cooling rack to set. Repeat with 12 more cookies and 1/2 of remaining chocolate mixture; repeat again until all cookies are coated, adding additional powdered sugar to bag as needed.
