  • 1/2 cup 1 stick butter, softened
  • 4 ounces 1/2 block cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 10 Nutter Butter cookie crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips melted (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper
  • Cream cream cheese and butter until fluffy, about 1 minute. Beat in sugar until combined. Beat in vanilla, egg, and baking powder. Slowly add flour until mixture comes together. Stir in mini chocolate chips. Chill dough for at least 30 minutes.
  • Place Nutter Butter crumbs in a medium bowl (I crushed them in my food processor). Scoop balls of cookie dough (I did 2 tablespoon balls) and roll them in the crushed cookies. Place on cookie sheet. Bake for 12-13 minutes, until they begin to crack. Cool completely.
  • Place melted chocolate chips in a baggy with the tip cut off. Pipe onto cookies as desired
