Fill these chocolate cookies with three kinds of Reese's and watch them disappear!

Easy cake mix cookies are the one thing I always have ingredients on hand to make.

The other day my son was headed to a friend’s house later in the afternoon, and he asked if I could make something for him to take.  Teen boys like to munch on just about anything, right?

These cookies are easy to mix up.  I have made so many versions since trying these Chocolate Mint Cookies.  The longest part of the recipe is giving the dough some time to set up in the refrigerator because of the melted butter and softened cream cheese.

Now you could bake them right away, but they will spread a little bit more.  I kind of like fat, puffy cookies, so I do recommend chilling it for at least 30 minutes.
Peanut butter chips and Reese's candies make these chocolate cookies a favorite in our house!
Now I bet you are drooling all over your keyboard right now because…well, because it’s chocolate and peanut butter.  Now I know there are some of you out there that don’t prefer chocolate and peanut butter, go ahead and say it.  I know you will feel better about admitting it.

Go ahead and check out these Butterscotch M&M Pudding Cookies…you might be happier there.

But come right back because I have a fun way for you to get involved in the blogging community.

These easy chocolate cookies filled with Reese's candies and peanut butter chips. My kids devour these every time I make them!

Right before Christmas last year, Ashley from Center Cut Cook announced that she was expecting their first baby.  Hooray!!!  But unfortunately, she also announced that her husband had also been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer.  I can’t even imagine how hard that news must have been.  The last 9 months they have gone through all the firsts of expecting a newborn along with many Dr. visits and chemo treatments.
