How to Make Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chunk Cookies

In no particular order, place your ingredients into a large mixing bowl.

I started with the cake mix.

Pour in your melted butter.

Add your eggie.

Add your chocolate chips. I chose the mini’s.


Time for the Reeses Peanut Butter Cups.

Place 25 of them in a ziplock bag and give them a good smash.

Once smashed, add them right to the bowl.

Scoop onto your cookie sheet.

With your fingers, press each cookie down about 1/2 inch.

Perfect little cookie if I don’t say so myself 🙂  Enjoy!

  • Oven


  • 1 box devils food cake mix
  • 1 stick butter melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups mini chocolate chips
  • 25 mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with parchment or a silpat liner.
  •  Place all ingredients into a large bowl mixing until combined. I find it easiest to mix with hands. If dough seems too dry, you can add 2 additional Tablespoons melted butter.
  • With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto baking sheet placed 1 inch apart. Bake for 13-15 minutes until cooked through. Let cool for 10 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to cooling rack.


*If the dough seems too dry, add 2 more Tbsp melted butter

    I love cookies made from cake mix. The texture is the best. This is a great combination!

  2. Susan @ The Weekly Sweet Experiment

    Wow – those sound so good. If I had reeces on hand I would be making them right now – or maybe when the kids went to bed so I didn’t have to share. Can’t wait to try them! Thanks for the great recipes! Susan


    My husband would love these! His two favorite things chocolate and peanut butter.

    i have seen several cookie recipes calling for cake mix but none look and beautiful as yours. Adding the chocolate bits and crushed peanut butter cups make these cookies absolutely irresistible!

    I love the idea of cake mix cookies, so simple yet so smart! And of course you got me with peanut butter and chocolate:-)

  18. Amanda

    These look so good! Reese’s = heaven in a bite. I am also a HUGE fan of peanut butter and banana’s, so I wonder how this recipe would taste substituting a banana cake mix instead of the chocolate? I might have to test this out 🙂

  19. Esther @ Esther Eats!

    These sound divine! I bet they are really rich too, but that’s okay! I love chocolate and peanut butter, especially Reese’s cups.

  20. Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

    Jenny these look so good and I’ve seen other recipes that just call for a box of cake mix to make cookies..and you proved that I MUST try this. And add all those Reese’s…YUM

    They look rich, moist and perfect! 🙂
