Twizzlers and Reese's Pieces Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies

This recipe can be filed in my growing list of PB&J-type desserts...kind of.  The cookie and its title are both a mouthful. And weird, too. WEIRD! If you like Twizzlers, then these cookies are for you. If not (that's me), I strongly suggest that you to switch them out for something else (e.g., craisins or other dried berries).

These cookies were made for a friend's birthday. I found out she liked Reese's Pieces (WHO DOESN'T), chocolate and Twizzlers. So I decided to throw these babies together into a variation of a cake mix cookie recipe via the Cake Mix Doctor.

Twizzlers and Reese's Pieces Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies

  • 1 pkg. devil's food cake
  • 1/3c water
  • 4T melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1t vanilla
  • 1/2c Reese's Pieces (chop some in half if you have the patience)
  • 1/3c Twizzlers, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and throw some parchment on a baking sheet.
  2. Beat together the first 5 ingredients: low speed for 1 min, then medium for 1 minute. 
  3. Fold in the Twizzlers and Reese's Pieces.
  4. Use that trusty 2t cookie scoop and drop those cookies on the cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes and let sit on cookie sheet for 1 min after removing from oven.
Like I said, weird. The people who were all about some Twizzlers, including the birthday girl, were all about these cookies. The rest of us, not so much. However, I very much enjoy the cookie itself. (I picked around the Twizzlers and ate the rest of the cookie. Good times.)
