C-fun's Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies

I have a friend I like to call C-fun. In my opinion, she has a few signature desserts. They have a theme: chocolate and peanut butter.

Chocolate and peanut butter pie, chocolate covered peanut butter truffles, and the cake mix peanut butter chocolate chip cookies I'm writing about now.

She says she likes this recipe because it's consistent, the cookies always come out good. I like it because it makes a softer peanut butter cookie that doesn't crumble into a million pieces as soon as you take a bite. Plus it is super easy because the cake mix means very little measuring.

But I warn you, they are addictive.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies

1 box white cake mix

2 eggs

1/3 cup water

¼ cup softened butter

15oz jar creamy peanut butter

12oz chocolate chips (I used ½ milk, ½ semi-sweet)

Pre-heat oven to 375ยบ

Scramble eggs with water

Whip to combine with butter

Add half the box of cake mix and peanut butter and beat until light and fluffy

Add second half of cake mix and stir until mostly combined

Add chocolate chips and continue stirring until thoroughly combined

Drop onto greased cookie sheet by rounded teaspoonfuls (I used a medium cookie scoop)

Bake for 10-12 minutes, until done

Cool on cookie sheet about 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling rack
