Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cookies

     Hello!  Today's recipe come from the amazing blog, Cookies and Cups (here).  I love peanut butter cups and I love chocolate so what's not to love about this recipe.  Oh, did I mention that there are only 4 ingredients?!
     These cookies look and taste like you spent all day baking but no one has to know that these take less than 15 minutes to prepare!  Even though the cookie is made with a cake mix the cookie is soft but not "cakey".  The mini peanut butter cups break up when you're mixing the batter letting little gobs of peanut butter melt thought the cookie.  
     And can I just say that after tasting just one cookie, I decided that this batter will be the batter I use for all chocolate cookies.  It was SO simple!  Just imagine substituting the peanut butter cups with chocolate chips and walnuts.  Or you could try white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts... Or how about Andes mint candies?  Oh, the possibilities are endless!

Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cookies

  • 1 pkg chocolate cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 8 oz mini peanut butter cups (caution: these are easy to eat by the handful!)
1.  Preheat oven to 350.  Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2.  Using mixer, combine first three ingredients.  Add mini peanut butter cups and mix until incorporated (batter will be thick and peanut butter cups will break apart).

3.  Drop by rounded tablespoon on cookie sheet.  Bake for 8-9 minutes.  Cool on cookie sheet for several minutes before moving to wire rack.  Enjoy!
