You should know by now 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, the poor guy is still waiting for his homemade cherry pie.
This recipe was a home run, they disappeared very quickly!
- 1 box Chocolate Cake Mix
- 1/2 cup liquid coconut oil
- 2 eggs
Beat butter and peanut butter together, until smooth.
Add vanilla and cream.
Slowly add powdered sugar until you reach your desired consistency. Add more milk if it becomes too thick.
Frost cookies with the method of choice. I used a handheld icing decorator.
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 them 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?
