Peanut Butter Icing-Chocolate Cake Cookies!

You should know by know I have a slight obsession with Peanut Butter, right?  You can certainly discover this by the amounts of recipes I make with peanut butter.  When you pair peanut butter with chocolate you have a winning dessert in my opinion, just like these Peanut Butter Icing Chocolate Cake Cookies.

If given dessert options I will choose the peanut butter chocolate one first, just ask Mr. DD.  When I bake, I choose recipes with peanut butter, poor guy is still waiting for his homemade cherry pie.

Peanut Butter Icing Chocolate Cake Cookies-4

 Once I placed the icing on the cookies I decided to add some more pretty.  I melted milk chocolate baking chips with a little oil and drizzled on top of the peanut butter icing.  I also chopped up some mini Reese’s cups to add to the total peanut butter yumminess!

I love making cookies using cake batter.  I always have cake batter on hand and it is so easy to make a batch of cookies with a cake box mix.  Have you ever made cookies using a box mix?
