These were inspired by the milk chocolate cookies with peanut butter filling that I made over the summer. I wanted to make a softer and faster version of them for Christmas Eve. So I made the cookies with devil’s food cake mix and the same peanut butter filling from the original recipe. I used a ziploc bag to pipe the filling on quickly. Very easy dessert recipe for anyone who is a fan of chocolate and peanut butter!
For the cookies:
1 box devil’s food cake mix
1/3 cup oil
For the filling:
2 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
4 tbsp confectioner’s sugar
Preheat oven to 350. Combine cake mix, oil, and eggs; stir with spoon until thoroughly moistened. Shape dough into 1 inch balls, then gently flatten them in your palms. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-7 minutes. To make the filling, beat together the butter and the peanut butter. Sift in the confectioners’ sugar; beat until fluffy. Spread the filling on the flat side of half of the cookies and sandwich with the remaining cookies.
