Chocolate Candy Cookies
If you’re looking for a sweet, homemade treat, look no further than this recipe. The addition of peanut butter cups makes these goodies simply delightful!
Preparation time: 25 minutes.
Cooling time: 15 minutes.
1 package (8 ounces) low-fat sugar-free chocolate snack cake mix (such as Sweet ‘n Low chocolate cake snack cake mix)
3 tablespoons skim milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (3 1/4-ounce) package fructose-sweetened peanut butter cup candy, coarsely chopped (such as Estee)
2 tablespoons peanut butter baking chips
1/2 teaspoon corn oil
1 – Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray baking sheets with cooking spray; set aside. Beat cake mix, milk, and vanilla extract in a medium bowl with electric mixer on low speed. When the mixture looks crumbly, increase speed to medium and beat 1-2 minutes or until a smooth dough forms (dough will be very sticky). Stir in chopped candy. Coat hands with cooking spray. Roll dough into 1-inch balls (recoat hands as needed). Place balls 2 1/2 inches apart on the greased baking sheets. Flatten each ball slightly with the bottom of a drinking glass coated with cooking spray. Bake 8-9 minutes, or until cookies lose their shininess and tops begin to crack. Do not over bake. Remove to wire rack to cool.
2 – Heat baking chips and oil in a small saucepan over low heat until baking chips melt. Drizzle cooled cookies with melted baking chips. Allow topping to harden before serving.
