Peanut butter choc chip

I am letting you in on a little secret of go to recipe for chocolate chip cookies. This is by no means a crunchy cookie that spreads out flat once it enters the oven. I am not a fan of hard cookies at all! I like soft, moist, chocolaty little pieces of heaven. If you are like me you will LOVE this cookie. This is my husbands favorite cookie and it just happens to be SUPER SIMPLE to make.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 box of yellow cake mix
1 stick of (softened) butter or margarine
1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter (sometimes I do 1/4 cup creamy, 1/4 cup crunchy)
2 Eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips (I never measure.....just put in how much you want)

Combine all the ingredients together (except the choc. chips) and mix. I wouldn't use a hand mixer because the dough is quite thick. I just take the opportunity to burn a few calories (since I will be devouring cookies) and mix by hand. Once combined add in the chocolate chips.

I use a cookie dough scoop to measure and form my cookies but you can just eye it if that is what you are used to. I do highly recommend a scoop, though. It is just a time saver and makes your cookies all come out the same size and they are all done at the same time!

Bake @ 350
9-11 minutes
(these cookies stay light in color and will burn on the bottoms if you don't keep an eye on them, so once you see they are set take them out!)
Let them set on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack.

* you can also try a chocolate or devils food cake mix for double chocolate chip peanut butter cookies. Both are fantastic!

I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
