Fudge Cookies with Peanut Butter Filling

My daughter's birthday was last month, and I bought a cake mix as a back-up just in case the homemade Super Moist Chocolate Cupcakes were not perfect.  Lucky for me, the cupcakes were more than perfect and I'm left with a box cake mix.

I thought about making some Homemade Oreo Cookies, but then creamy peanut butter filling took over my thoughts.  Reese's are my favorite candy bar, and these cookies are a chewy version.  They are quick and easy, and I know your family will love them!

Cookie Ingredients:

1 Box Pillsbury Devils Food cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper, or spray with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, add all ingredients and stir until well blended.  Form walnut size balls and place on cookie sheets.  Note:  Cookie dough mixture will be thick; Makes about 25 cookies 

Bake for 8 minutes, remove from oven and let sit on cookie sheets for another 5 minutes.  Transfer cookies to wire rack to cool completely.

Peanut Butter Filling:

1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 T milk, as needed

In a large stand mixer, beat butter and peanut butter until combined.  Add the vanilla extract and powdered sugar.  Mix and slowly add milk as needed.  Mix for 3 minutes.

When the cookies have cooled, you can add the peanut butter filling.  Roll 1 T peanut butter filling mixture into a ball and place on smooth side of cookie.  Place another cookie on top and press lightly to sandwich.  Continue and assemble all cookies.  Enjoy!
