Devil’s Food Cake Cookies with Peanut Butter Filling


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

2 eggs

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.
