Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

One of the great things about having teenagers is that they can be pretty independent in the kitchen. Of course, they’re not quite experts yet, so they often choose semi-homemade type recipes, like these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies.


I don’t know if it’s the addition of peanut butter, but you really don’t taste the cake mix in these cookies at all.

They were fantastic (especially since someone else made them for me!), and soft and chewy, just the way I like them.

Honestly, I think this will be my go-to peanut butter chocolate chip cookie recipe from now on!
