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
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.

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