These ultra chewy cookies are thick and fudgy like a brownie. They have a creamy peanut butter taste and are so incredibly easy to make.


  • 1 box devil’s food cake mix
  • 1/2 pkg. (125g) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup (132g) smooth peanut butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp sugar for dipping (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line 2 baking sheets with non-stick baking mats or parchment paper.
  2. Place all ingredients in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined (about 3-4 minutes).
  3. Using a medium cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop rounded cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets. Flatten each ball in a criss-cross pattern using the tines of a fork dipped in sugar.
  4. Bake for about 8 minutes or until edges of cookies are set. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes and remove to wire racks to cool completely.


Store leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
