Reese’s Chunk Cake Mix Cookies

Last week for his birthday, my husband requested Reese’s Peanut Butter cake. I had a few ideas on how I might create a legitimately Reese’s flavored delight, but we only needed one cake and I had ingredients for lots of goodies!!

So, may I present (drum roll) Reese’s Chunk Cake Mix Cookies!!

Ingredients
1 box of Devil’s Food Cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup of oil (vegetable, canola, etc)
1/4 cup Reese’s Pieces
1/4 cup Reese’s Baking Chips

Begin by combining the cake mix, oil, and eggs, stirring with a wooden spoon until a dough forms.

Then add in the baking chips and candy. The dough is oily, so the candy will not stick very well. Do your best to distribute the candy throughout the dough.

Form the dough into a “log” and roll to cover with plastic wrap. Then place in your refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to chill.

Once the dough is cold, remove from plastic wrap and cut into cookie portions. I like to form my dough into marshmallow shaped cylinders to bake into a thick, soft cookie.

Bake 7-9 minutes at 350 degrees (F).

When baked, remove from oven and gently slap each cookie with a spatula or with your clean hands if you want. This breaks the pillowy cookie into a flatter, crackly topped cookie. You can see the before-slap and after-slap in the picture above.

Let me warn you. These cookies are amazing, but they are so high in calories that you might feel guilty just reading about it. The recipe makes 24 cookies, each cookie around 140 calories. Not too bad, if you could stop at one cookie!

And, in case you were wondering, my husband did get his Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup cake. See?
