"A good cookie. I found once the batter sits for a few minutes it's less sticky. Otherwise it's a very sticky dough. Mix by hand. My I inch balls may have been a bit bigger, recipe made 32 cookies."

"Yummy, Very easy to make, turned out perfect! I used M&M instead of PB chips. I made dough into balls and iightly inserted M & M. on the top. Eye appealing with dark dough."

"This is the best of the 'cake mix cookie' recipes you will find! Not only is quick to put together but they taste great. The combination of a moist chocolate cookie combined with peanut butter chips is always a winner! Occasionally I will add Reese's Pieces candies to the dough - great around Halloween."

"Years ago this recipe was in Taste of Home and I made cookies using every flavor of cake mix made! I lost the recipe (one would think I'd have remembered it by heart as many batches as I made) and have searched for it since --- am so happy to have found it again!

One variation that I remember as being very good was the Spice cake mix with cinnamon sugar on top! Just dip the cookie ball in the sugar before flattening. Use your imagination & make a favorite of our own!"

"I made this and it didn't pan out like I thought it would so that's why I gave it a 2 star, sorry! The oil was too much and the batch did not yield the 24 stated. But then again, I'm not a baker, I'm more of a cook! Maybe my hubby will try making this on his own sometime and maybe the rating can go up, plus tips on how the recipe was changed!"

"I made these on the spur of the moment for Valentines for my grandsons. I only had 1/2 bag of peanut butter chips so made up the other half with chocolate chips. So easy, quick and very good."
