3. Mix in the vanilla extract and 1 tbsp water.
4. Add the cocoa and the rest of the powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Add more water to get the right consistency.

1. When cookie cake has cooled, spread chocolate icing on the top.
2. Add Reese’s to the top of the icing.
3. Drizzle chocolate sauce on top of Reese’s.
4. Store in an airtight container.
