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 had to try these. I have to say I am a little disappointed. They are certainly rich and chocolately but kind of dry ( I even added the extra butter). The printed recipe doesn’t include the step of pressing them down to 1/2 inch thick. This is a must do step as they do not spread out as they cook. They will get ate for sure but I don’t know if I would make them again.

    These need the extra butter and should not be baked so long. We thought they were good but not great and much too dry.

    These look delicious and I did make them, but the directions and ingredients required should be more specific. What size of cake mix did you use? And how big of a stick of butter? The only sticks of butter I have come across are 454g – almost 3 times as much as your recipe called for!
    The recipe had a lot more cake mix than anything else (maybe because cake mix boxes come in different amounts), but after everything was mixed, it was way too dry, I had to add another egg and a little bit of water. And 2 cups of chocolate chips would have been overkill! I only used one and it was a lot.

    They did turn out veryy delicious though!!
