Chocolate Chewies with Peanut Butter Glaze
This is a super easy way to make cookies. Start with a cake mix and save yourself a lot of measuring! These always turn out soft and chewy, and the glaze on top is to die for!!
1 package chocolate cake mix (any variety will work)
1/3 cup water
4 tablespoons melted butter
1 bag chocolate chips (again...any variety)
Combine all ingredients with an electric mixer but the chocolate chips. Once everything is well mixed, fold in the chips. Drop by heaping teaspoons on greased cookies sheets about two inches apart. Bake about 10 to 12 minutes or until the cookies are set but still a little soft in the center. Once removed from the oven let them rest on the cookie sheets for at least 1 minute. Let them cool completely on wire racks.
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 - 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 - 2 tablespoons milk
Combine powdered sugar, peanut butter and 1 tablespoons of milk in a small bowl with a whisk until smooth. Add more milk until desired consistency is reached. Drizzle over completely cooled cookies.
