This crispy snack is topped with a layer of chocolate and then decorated with a thin piping of peanut butter. A candy or plastic spider placed on top would complete the image for a creepy Halloween treat!
1 (12-ounce) package NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup creamy peanut butter - divided use
1/3 cup powdered sugar
