    4. Add egg, ¼ cup of oil and 1 cup of peanut butter.

    6. Transfer the batter to a large zipper seal bag and seal.
    7. Snip one end off of the bag with scissors.

      1. Add cocoa and powdered sugar to a mixing bowl and stir until well blended.
      2. Add several tablespoons of coffee creamer to the bowl and mix by hand with a whisk.
      3. If needed add a touch more to get the consistency you desire. You want the glaze to be thin enough to dip into, but not runny.
