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.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk together melted butter and brown sugar until smooth.
Whisk in eggs. Slowly add in cake mix. Mix until smooth, batter will be thick. Fold in morsels.
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 :)
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!
