Ingredients

Chocolate Cake Mix Cookie

  • 1-15.25 oz. box chocolate fudge cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • cup vegetable oil

Peanut Butter Frosting

  • ½ cup butter
  • cup peanut butter
  • 8 tbsp milk {I used 1%}
  • 2 ½ cups powdered sugar

Instructions

Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Combine cookie ingredients in large bowl and mix until completely incorporated.  I like to use a hand held mixer but stirring the ingredients by hand works too. NOTE:  Dough will be thick.

  3. Using a medium sized cookie scoop {or heaping tablespoon}, scoop cookies onto a silicone {or parchment} lined cookie sheet.

  4. Bake for 9-11 minutes, remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet for at least 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.  Repeat until all of the dough is baked.

Peanut Butter Frosting

  1. Combine the butter, peanut butter and milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until everything is melted and smooth.  Remove from heat, add powdered sugar and whisk until smooth.

  2. Pour {or spoon} frosting over cookies.  Use a knife or spoon to move excess frosting and be sure that the top of each cookie is completely covered.

  3. Place chocolate melts into a microwaveable bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. Continue in 15 second intervals until melted and smooth. Place the melted chocolate into a piping {or zipper} bag. Cut a small triangle from the bottom {or corner} and drizzle over the top of each cookie.

  4. Let frosting set for about an hour and serve.  Keep in an air tight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
