Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Treats

I haven't decided if this cookie from Betty Crocker is brilliant or evil:

You basically make a batch of peanut butter cookies, let them cool, and then coat them the same way you would coat cereal to make puppy chow/muddy buddies/whatever you call it.

You take chocolate chips, peanut butter, and butter, melt it together, poor it over the cookies and then toss them in a bag of powdered sugar.

I am going to post the recipe, but I am not recommending actually making it. I am pretty sure I am leaning towards evil.

I am such a sucker for chocolate and peanut butter!

Sara, truer words have never been spoken! I am debating about making them for dessert tomorrow. I think it might be a sin to make them on a Sunday!

I have made these and they are messy but to die for!

Oh my. Brilliant or evil is a good question. I think I'll have to try them and find out. Ya' know. For the good of public info. ;)

A friend of mine posted these on Facebook - she said her hubby has never eaten that many cookies!!! Apparently they're addictive. I'm going to have to give them a whirl soon...
