Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies
Feb 20, 2012

Have you ever been snubbed by your dog?

It kinda stinks.

Guess who totally gave me the cold shoulder this weekend?

She HATES it when it’s time for her flea treatment.  You know those little vials of liquid that you put on a dog’s back to prevent fleas/ticks…  It smells sort of like orange-scented Pledge.  I guess the smell drives Haley bonkers.  For two days afterward, she avoided me like the plague.  When I walked toward her, she’d get up and walk away.

Geez, she’s dramatic.  Like dog, like owner.

I finally won her back Sunday afternoon by taking her on a 30 minute walk and giving her peanut butter.  At least I know the secret to her heart.

You can also win over hearts with these easy cake mix cookies!  I recently made these cookies to take to a friend’s dinner party.  The cookies went over well and no one was the wiser that they took just a hot minute to make.   Nothing wrong with letting people assume you slaved away in the kitchen!

Peanut Butter Cup Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies

Recipe from Cookies & Cups


1 box chocolate cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 8 ounce bag Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Minis


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.  Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together the chocolate cake mix, eggs, and vegetable oil.  Stir together until combined.
Add in the bag of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Minis.  Stir in the Minis until combined.  You’ll want the Minis broken, but large chunks of Minis are ideal.
Using a spoon or cookie scoop, place  rolled balls of dough on prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 8-9 minutes.
