Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

If you haven’t noticed by looking at my dessert page, I personally love chocolate and last week I had a big craving for something chewy, chocolatey and peanutty.   These little gems are a result of that craving. I used super moist triple chocolate cake mix, melted butter, brown sugar and chocolate peanut butter morsels to make some of the best chewy cookies I have ever had.

Recently I have heard a few people talk about how they melt the butter when preparing their cookies. I had never heard of that before, most of the recipes that I had read called for softened butter. But after hearing so much talk about it, I thought I would give it a try and I think it is a little trick that I will use from now on.

Triple Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Print Recipe
Makes 3 dozen Prep Time: Cook Time:

Ingredients:

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 package triple chocolate super moist cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (10 ounce) package swirled milk chocolate and peanut butter morsels ( I used Nestle)

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2

Whisk together melted butter and brown sugar until smooth.

3

Whisk in eggs. Slowly add in cake mix. Mix until smooth, batter will be thick. Fold in morsels.

4

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Make rounded teaspoonfuls of cookie dough and lay them 3 inches apart on the baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, cookies will be slightly underdone in the center. Let cool slightly, then transfer to cooling rack to finish cooling, although they are pretty good warm too :)

Notes

If you can't manage to find the swirled milk chocolate and peanut butter morsels, peanut butter chips would work just as well. If, and that is a big IF, you can manage to share these, you'll be a very popular person! I passed them out at work last week and they were gone in a flash. People still keep asking me for them. Enjoy!

    I just made these – they are fantastic! Instead of a 1/2 cup of butter, i did 1/4 of butter and 1/4 of peanut butter which added more peanut buttery goodness :)

  • Lauren- I love that idea! You can’t go wrong with more peanut butter goodness :) I’m glad you enjoyed them!
