Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies (5 Ingredients)

Yesterday I looked through my grandma’s recipes to pick something new to make. I found this interesting recipe for Hawaiian Cookies and knew that was the winner. This morning, I made the mistake of not grabbing the recipe, but figured I would remember what I needed to stop at the store and grab. As I stood at the checkout lane I was confident I had everything I needed, but not so much…forgot the coconut and cherries. That recipe will have to wait till later this week but I think it will be a good one! Stay tuned!!

I was still in the mood to bake so I went to the pantry. I had all the essentials so I knew something could be done. I decided to make Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with only 5 ingredients. Yep! Only 5! Cake mix, butter, eggs, peanut butter, and chocolate chips. I like cake mix cookies – quick to make and yummy!

I had never made this recipe so I wasn’t too sure how they would bake. I softly rolled the dough into balls and placed on the cookie sheet. For the first dozen I left as balls. The cookies didn’t spread very much so on the last 2 dozen I lightly flattened the dough. Either way works.

The finished product was yummy! They are soft and chewy and just the right mix of peanut butter and chocolate. Givem’ a try!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 eggs
1/3 cup Butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup Creamy or Chunky Peanut Butter
