Turn to chocolate fudge cake mix for these easy and delicious cookies, decorated with peanuts and candies.
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ chocolate fudge cake mix
cup butter or margarine, softened
cups candy-coated peanut butter pieces (from 1-lb 1.25-oz bag)
cup coarsely chopped salted peanuts
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick cookie sheets). Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. In large bowl, beat cake mix, butter and eggs with electric mixer on low speed just until moistened. Stir in peanut butter pieces and peanuts.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets.
Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until edges are set and tops appear dry. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely. Store covered.
After dropping the cookie dough onto cookie sheets, let kids arrange additional candy-coated peanut butter pieces on top of the dough.
Instead of candy-coated peanut butter pieces and salted peanuts, use your favorite small candies and nuts. Try candy-coated chocolate pieces and coarsely chopped walnuts.
