I use affiliate links in some of my posts. I may earn a commission if you use my links. Full disclosure.

Please remember that I don’t eat this stuff so I did not test this recipe. I’m just posting so you can try it!

check for ingredient coupons here
Round cookies of your choice (store bought or bake your own)
Pouches of cookie icing, colors of your choice
Assorted small candies (M&Ms, Reese’s, sprinkles, colored sugars, etc)
Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups, unwrapped and cut in half
(see my tips below)


1: Using image as a guide, pipe cookie icing onto cookie tops. Use a toothpick to creat swirls if desired.

2:  Immediately add your candy decorations.

3:  Add half of a peanut butter on top as seen in the image.

4:  Let stand until set, about 1 hour (or refrigerate to set quicker)

Darlene’s Tips: You can make your own cookie icing by mixing powdered sugar with a few drops at a time of water and food coloring until you get the desired consistency. Use cut up red shoestring candy as garland. Let the kids have fun with this!
