      First time making, my husband helped put the dough on the cookie sheets. We had MONSTER cookies, much to the delight of our two boys, lol. Delicious!!

      These cookies were quick, easy and delicious! Chilling the dough makes them easier to scoop out.

      These cookies are delicious. I make them per the recipe with the exception of adding Reese's Pieces. Since they are peanut butter candies not much difference but more colorful.

      I have a question, do all the cake mix cookies on this site work with the cake mixes now? They are about 3 ounces smaller.....do I need to compensate for the missing 3 ounces of cake mix?

      Chocolate and peanut butter are a match made in culinary heaven! I love that the cookies start with a cake mix. So easy to make and economical.

      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!
