Quick and Easy Cake Mix Cookies

So here we are in the middle of  “Busy people need sweets that start with cake mix week”.

It’s a thing.  Read up about it HERE.

I certainly hope you are not offended by my use of cake mixes.

Because, I will tell you, people get all angry about preservatives and stuff.

I have gotten my fair share of emails telling me that shortening is the devil’s foot cream and how cake mixes are for the lazy.

Without sounding like a complete jerky-jerk…I bet that shortening would make a tremendously successful foot cream and cake mixes are for the BUSY not the lazy.

If you’re looking for health food, I am afraid that you have come to the wrong place.

While I certainly try and eat a balanced diet, I do “on-occasion” indulge in the sweet treat.

Use this blog as your “occasional indulgence handbook”.

Dude, that’s a really good name.  Kinda better than cookies and cups.

Wish I had thought of that a few years ago.

Anyway, if you are much too fancy to use cake mixes, then stop reading now.

It’s ok.  We can just agree to disagree.

BUT if you’re my peeps, let’s get our cake mix on because it’s “Busy people need sweets that start with cake mix week”!

Oh yeah.

A Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie Recipe

So as most of you all know, Peanut Butter Cups are like my most favorite ingredient.  They have yet to disappoint in a recipe or a poor snacking decision.

Here is the star player today… best invention of the new millennium (screw the iPad)… the Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.

All unwrapped and ready to be devoured by the handful.

How to Make Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies:

These cookies are super simple.

Start with a chocolate cake mix, some vegetable or canola oil and eggs…mix it up.

When the dough is smooth throw in your bag of Reese’s.  Give it another mix…just enough for the Reese’s to incorporate and break up a little.

Roll them into balls and bake on a parchment lined baking sheet…

That’s it!

They’ll look like this…

People will love them and bow at your feet and never once think that you used a cake mix.

And, I am all about people bowing at my feet.

  1. I read through the recipe at the top and it said 1 egg. When you got to the other recipe at the bottom, it said
    2 eggs. I am confused. Which is it? The cookies sound delicious but possibly adding 2 eggs would make it too runny. Thanks

  2. Just read through the recipe and at the top it says 1 eggs and down below where the whole recipe is , it says 2 eggs. I am confused but I guess you follow the instructions on the box(or not)??????? They do sound delicious!
    clarification would help immensely. Thanks

  3. I am going to make these for a cookie party next weekend because these look easy and delicious and I need to make 6 dozen! Roughly what is the cookie yield of 1 box of cake mix? Thanks!

  4. Hi. I’m wondering how many cookies this recipe makes? Didn’t see it in the recipe or comments. Trying to plan for a large cookie exchange party 🙂
