My husband loves many things, including the combination of peanut butter and chocolate.  It was my mission to find a recipe for peanut butter oreo cookies.  Oh yeah!  He may just be the happiest man on Earth this Father’s Day.

Homemade Peanut Butter Oreos

1 chocolate cake mix (I like to use Chocolate Fudge.)
1 stick of butter, melted
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix all ingredients with a wooden spoon or stand mixer.  This makes a thick dough.  Roll into small 1 inch balls and place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 or 9 minutes.  Do not overbake the cookies!  Keep watching them.

Peanut Butter Filling:
1 c. powdered sugar
1 c. creamy peanut butter
5 T. butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt (omit if using salted butter)
1/3 c. whole milk

Mix all ingredients (except milk) together.  Slowly add milk, and mix until creamy.
This recipe was slightly adapted from:  Ina Garten

Once cookies have cooled, spread frosting on the bottom of half the cookies and top with the other half.
