Tools used in this recipe
In a large mixing bowl, whip the butter until fluffy and creamy.
Add the sugar and brown sugar with the help of the KPKitchen Stainless Steel Measuring Cups. Continue mixing it until well incorporated.
Scrape down the bowl and add the eggs one by one.
Add the peanut butter, then add the vanilla extract, flour, and salt using your KPKitchen Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons. Continue mixing until everything is well incorporated.
Scoop the cookie dough and form a ball. Press in the middle to make a small dent for the peanut butter cup later.
Place on your KPKitchen Baking Sheet lined with KPKitchen Baking Mats Set. Freeze overnight or refrigerate for at least 1 hour before baking.
- Meanwhile, make the frosting. In a stand up mixer whip the butter until soft and fluffy. Add the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, salt, and vanilla extract. Continue whipping until everything is well incorporated - about 5 minutes.
- Add the heavy cream one tablespoon at a time until you reach the right consistency.
- Transfer to the piping bag and massage it to remove the air bubbles. Set aside.
Bake at 350 F for 18 minutes.
Let cool to room temperature on your KPKitchen Cooking Rack before adding the peanut butter cup in the middle and making the legs with the icing bag. Use the candy eyes for garnish.
Sounds delicious! Actually, I would like the measurement in grams more than in cups because I prefer to bake using a scale.
